Collagen is an essential protein in our body and has many important functions, including providing our skin with structure and strengthening our bone. However, as we age, our body produces less collagen resulting in wrinkles and dry skin.
.
๐Ÿ‰ The Benefits of Collagen Supplements
Collagen supplements aim to help support our bodyโ€™s natural collagen production and thereby slowing the aging of our skin. As a result, it may help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dryness of our skin.
.
๐Ÿ‰ Is Collagen Vegan?
Traditional collagen supplements are not vegan as collagen is primarily sourced from bovine and marine sources. Herbalandโ€™s vegan collagen boosters contain plant-based ingredients to promote the bodyโ€™s natural collagen production.

some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

7 Vegan and Eco-Friendly Makeup Brushes

This post may contain affiliate links.

Making the switch to using eco-friendly and vegan makeup? Have you ever given your makeup brushes a thought?

Biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes are sort of having their moment right now in the green and eco-community and our beauty tools and makeup brushes are often overlooked when transitioning to a natural beauty routine.

We ought to consider the impact our makeup brushes have on the planet and animals. And asking whether there are better and kinder alternatives available. So, are you ready to brush up on how to make the switch to eco-friendly vegan brushes?

Natural Makeup Brushes Are Hurting Animals

Natural makeup brushes are made with animal hair. The type of animals used vary but it’s typical to find natural makeup brushes derived from goat, pony, boar, squirrel, badger, and horse hair.

Almost all makeup brands selling natural makeup brushes claim to be “cruelty-free” in which the process of obtaining the animal hair doesn’t hurt or harm the animals. The problem is, there are absolutely no animal welfare laws or regulations protecting and monitoring how the animals should be treated or housed. So that means, we have to trust the very same people who are trying to sell us their products, and basically take their word for it and believe them when they claim animals weren’t harmed to make their ‘superior’ products.

But if you really think about it, there’s no way to humanely capture and cage animals so that we can give them a haircut and “take what we only need”. Animals do not willingly give their hair to us, we literally take it from them and then resell it as a “cruelty-free” product.

What can we do instead? Opt for makeup brushes that are made with synthetic bristles instead. Try to filter out the term “cruelty-free” makeup brushes, it means very little when it comes to makeup brushes. Look for the “vegan” label instead, this means the bristles are made from non-animal materials.

Tips on Keeping Your Makeup Brushes as Environmentally-Friendly as Possible

Make Your Makeup Brushes Last – prolong the life of your makeup brushes by regularly and gently washing them to avoid product and bacteria build up and make sure to not fully submerge your brushes under water while cleaning them and dry them flat or hang them upside down to dry.

Only Buy What You Need – avoid buying another 12+ brush set, because do you really need another spoolie brush? and unless you’re a professional makeup artist, you probably won’t end up using 5 out of 12 of the brushes.

Repurpose and Recycle Old Makeup Brushes – yes, makeup brushes do expire. You’ll know when it’s time to throw away and replace your makeup brushes when the bristles are falling out, it’s misshapen and no longer holds its shape, or it doesn’t apply makeup like it used to.

Opt for Brushes With Sustainable & Recycled Materials – this is the category we’re going to focus on in this post. Whether you’re starting from scratch or need to replace a brush, we encourage you to choose makeup brushes with sustainability and longevity in mind. Quality synthetic brushes that were made to last and that are mindful to the planet.
