Let’s get one thing straight Mink Lashes are in no way Cruelty-Free!!!
These are some examples of what Eyelash companies will tell you:
➡️”Cruelty-Free & Sterilized
Our 100% natural mink hair is free from any chemical processing or dyes. Velour mink is collected from free-range zoos and recycled during the shedding seasons, it’s then sterilized to ensure it is completely safe for use.”
➡️ ” The manufacturers simply get the hairs from brushing and collecting the hairs from the animals.”
These are complete lies guys!!!
Minks are wild animals! They are captured from the Wild or breed in Fur Farms😭 They haven’t been able to domesticate them.
Here are some pictures you need to see for yourself. This is where your Mink Eyelashes come from.

After seeing some of these images it is obvious that Cruelty-Free Mink Lashes do not exist. I’m sorry if I burst your bubble but the truth of the matter is that these eyelash companies just want your money. Please support Cruelty-Free Lashes such as:
➡️ ELF cosmetics
➡️ Ardell Lashes
➡️ House of lashes (List on this blog)
➡️ Georgio Beauty
➡️ Eco tools
➡️ Noir Lash lounge
➡️ Sugarpill cosmetics
There’s absolutely no excuse to continue to support the fur industry and those companies who are lying about how they source their Mink Lashes Guys! Please use your dollar to vote and help the animals!
Minks fur is “harvested” by skinning the Mink alive, Anally electrocution, slow poison deaths,engine exhaust, braking necks.
Thank you to Jo-Anne McArthur / We Animals for providing these pictures of the real conditions of the fur farms.
Thank you for everything you do to capture all these moments in camera, I can personally only imagine how difficult it must be for you to do this. Please check out her website to further educate yourself and you can also donate to her project ❤
Thank you soooo much for taking the time to read this blog post. It was long overdue.
