Why we won’t sell mink eyelashes.
Posted on January 16 2021
Even though mink eyelashes are sold in the make-up aisle, And by some of the largest eyelash brands, they can’t conceal the cruelty involved in producing them as it would totally damage their profit & reputation
These Animals are subjected to a lifetime of violence and neglect and, ultimately, a terrifying death for these products, no matter the price tag. Here are reasons why you should never buy them:
Mink eyelashes come from fur farms.
Purveyors of fur stolen from minks for use in false eyelashes you will probably hear some familiar labels on their products, like “ethically sourced”, “free-range”, and “cruelty-free”. But just like meat, those labels serve only one purpose: to deceive consumers.
Minks can’t be “free-range”. They’re solitary, territorial animals who become aggressive when they feel threatened, and they would fight if confined to a small area together. Instead, they’re kept separate in cramped wire cages on fur farms, where they are denied the opportunity to bathe, swim, burrow, or do anything else that’s natural and important to them and are often deprived of even basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinary care.
2: MINKS CANT BE “BRUSHED” Minks aren’t domestic cats. They don’t curl up in human laps for treats and brushing. These animals are naturally scared of humans (rightfully so), and being forcefully held by a human who’s pulling on their fur would, at best, be terrifying for them and could, at worst, cause them to lash out in self-defence. So it’s very likely that minks are being killed for eyelashes.
3: Animals imprisoned on fur farms are violently killed.
After a lifetime spent trapped in cramped wire cages, animals used for their fur are killed by electrocution, bludgeoning, gassing, or neck-breaking, and their skin may be torn off while they’re still conscious.Whichever slaughter method is used, every mink ends up dead, skinned, and discarded, never having had a chance to experience life as nature intended.
Why Faux our faux mink eyelashes are becoming incredibly popular?
All our products are made of safe, high-quality spandex like synthetic materials. Mink eyelash extensions are made to look and feel as soft as real mink fur, but still made of safe and cruelty-free synthetic material. Usually when people hear “Synthetic” they imagine a really hard stiff eyelash, but with the revolving technology these days we are now able to offer such silky effect lashes & most customers cannot tell them difference from our 4D effect to a real mink lash because they are so fluffy.
Real mink also does not maintain its curl well and often needs to be curled again after washing the lashes. At our point of view, we see that there are millions of reasons why PBT is better than real fur, and no we have reason at all to use real mink fur in eyelashes.
You also get a full peace of mind knowing you are not buying into cruelty.
