If you’ve ever heard of mink fur eyelash extensions, then you must be familiar with these standard terms that companies throw at their users. They do so to convince them that these products are made without any consequence or harm. Stuff like “100% cruelty-free” or “pure vegan.” It’s alright to use these terms, a lot of genuine companies do use them, our products also have these terms used. However, it is not alright to lie to your consumers about the nature of your product’s manufacturer. Mink fur eyelashes are such a popular product because of how natural, realistic and beautiful they are. They are as smooth as silk eyelashes while also seamlessly blending with the eyes of its wearer. Mink fur eyelashes have become a staple product in the cosmetic industry that needs to leave. The companies that sell these eyelashes advertise themselves to be cruelty-free and that these furs are ethically harvested. However, that’s quite hard to believe.


The Actual Truth Behind Fake Lashes

Their explanation on how these furs are harvested involves, collecting fallen fur and gently brushing the animals to collect the fur. Anyone who believes this is fooling themselves. Some of the world’s best eyelashes brands are the leading suppliers of mink fur eyelashes. These companies have a massive demand for such products. So, it is unreasonable to believe that they “gently brush” these animals and make do with the handful of fur they get from them. These companies get away with lying to their consumers because the customers want to believe they are telling the truth. We’re here to put an end to that facade. Consumers need to know that there is no harmless way these animals can be exploited for their fur. The animals are claimed to be freely kept in a “mink farm,” which is also hard to believe when you consider the very nature of these creatures. If a company were to let these animals roam freely in an enclosed space, their aggressive nature would cause them to harm one another constantly. This is bad for their business and will result in loss of minks. So, what is the actual truth? Well, there are several documented footage and accounts of minks being locked in tiny, wire-bottomed cages. These animals are semi-aquatic creatures, and water is an essential aspect of their life. Life in these farms prohibit their natural lifestyle and inhibits their freedom entirely. A mink in the wild would roam freely for miles on land and water. They are held captive like they are some domestic animals. This unbelievable level of inhumanity is common practice in the industry, and the only way to put an end to it is to subvert consumer demands.


Measures Being Taken

Plenty of organisations and members of the public have approached companies that claim to sell cruelty-free mink eyelashes to prove the authenticity of their methods. All of these companies disregarded the requests or gave a generic response to the queries. Their inability to answer tells us that their practices are less than safe and that things could be even worse for these little creatures. We are also aware of little-known facts like how these animals are killed once their fur becomes a thick winter coat. The fur that the customers use is either harvested before they are killed or afterwards. It feels less than human to wear the fur of an animal tortured to death. Being part of the same industry as these companies, we have dedicated our efforts to raise awareness. We even provide quality alternatives to the consumers that are bothered by these actions.
