So, you see some absolutely gorgeous lashes and they also happen to be labelled ‘vegan.’ Great! But what makes a lash vegan and is it really worthwhile? We think the answer is “yes!” and this blog is going to tell you why.
Read on and you’ll discover why vegan lashes might just be the best in the business...
What makes a lash vegan?
If you see a false lash carrying a ‘vegan’ label this just means that the materials used to create the lash are not derived from animals.
Why is this important?
Some false lashes are made using hairs taken from animals, the most common being mink or sable. This is pretty unsavoury, since not only are the animals killed for their fur, but the conditions they live in during their short lives leave a lot to be desired. By buying lashes marked ‘vegan’ you are therefore helping to protect animals around the world from this cruelty, by reducing the demand for their fur.
What’s in a vegan lash?
Going vegan doesn’t mean sacrificing quality. There are some ingenious substitutes to animal fur which have been developed over the years and they often prove to be lighter, softer and more durable. The most advanced material available is synthetic silk, a delightfully indulgent product which looks and feels just like a natural eyelash hair and lasts typically for up to 30 wears.
Are vegan lashes safe?
Absolutely! Vegan lashes are actually the safest lashes on the market, since they are designed from scratch using synthetic materials which are suitable for all skin types. As such, they won’t hurt your eyes or damage your natural lashes.
