2022 is the year to say goodbye to mink lashes for good. Here's why:
What are mink lashes?
Minks are fluffy little creatures similar to otters. Their fur is silky soft and lightweight, which is why, in the absence of more advanced technology, people in the past used hairs taken from minks and other similar animals (e.g. sables) to produce false lashes.
What’s the problem?
In order to extract a mink’s fur, we’re not talking about a haircut, we’re talking about killing minks. That’s a very high price to pay for a false lash.
Should I stop buying false lashes altogether?
No! The great news is that there are lots of options out there for people looking for fur-free (also known as vegan) and cruelty-free lashes. These lashes come with a guarantee that no animal fur has been used in their production, and that no animals have been used as part of the product’s testing.
Is the quality the same?
It’s better! The very best vegan false lashes are made with something known as synthetic silk, an artificial substitute which has the same velvety smooth texture and lightweight feel of mink without any of the harm.
Applying a false lash is one way of giving your lash line an instant boost, but there’s also a way to grow longer lashes naturally: Lash Growth Serums. Growth Serums stimulate the hair follicles along your lash line to give you longer, thicker lashes which are all your own! Learn more about Lash Growth Serums here.
