Why Mink Lashes are Not Cruelty-Free
I want to believe as much as anyone else that adorable minks are getting haircuts and whatever falls to the ground is washed and then used to make our falsies. Or that there’s some mink spa where the animals get massaged, shampooed, brushed, and the hair that sheds off is used to make our eyelashes. But let’s be honest, that’s not how it happens.
There’s a reason why there aren’t any images of these “cruelty-free mink farms.”
If you ever Google “mink eyelashes,” you’ll find images of eyelashes. But if you Google “mink farms,” you’ll see the brutal truth behind how those mink eyelashes came to be.
And any mink eyelash brand claiming their products are “cruelty-free” is a blatant lie. Here are some deceiving claims made from mink lash brands trying to paint a pretty picture of an unrealistic mink farm:
SJ Lashes claims, “Our real animal fur lashes are totally cruelty free, obtained by gently brushing live animals, without harming them. This gentle, meticulous procedure ensures that no animals are harmed during the entire harvesting process, while preserving the quality of the harvested fur. ” – SJ Lashes (NOT Cruelty-Free Brand)
Lotus Lashes claims, “you can rest assured that the minks aren’t harmed in the process of collecting the hairs for our beautiful lashes! The manufacturers simply get the hairs from brushing and collecting the hairs from the animals.” – Lotus Lashes (NOT Cruelty-Free Brand)
Sadly, no organizations or third parties audit or regulate the claims “cruelty-free mink farms” and “cruelty-free mink lashes.” So it can mean whatever the sellers want it to mean.
