KVD Vegan Beauty, the award-winning vegan cosmetics brand, is expanding its distribution with Ulta Beauty, the largest beauty retailer in the U.S. Kat Von D launched the brand with Kendo in 2008 but earlier this year announced that she was departing to focus on other projects. Kendo has since rebranded the range to KVD Vegan Beauty.
Last month Global Newswire reported that: “The global vegan beauty products market accounted for US$ 14.3 billion in 2019 and is estimated to be US$ 25.3 billion by 2029 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.9%. Rising awareness regarding cruelty-free beauty and surging demand for personal care products is projected to be one of the key trends in escalating the target market growth.”

Kelly Coller, KVD Vegan Beauty VP of Global Marketing and PR stated in a press release: “The Instagram countdown stunt included over 30 humans and animals alike, creating incredible buzz for consumers, new clients and beauty fans across the nation, all of whom share in the mass enthusiasm for KVD Vegan Beauty’s arrival at Ulta Beauty.
