Mink Lashes Are Not Cruelty-Free

Creestaaal Sanchez is the ultimate vegan make up and beauty pro who has garnered over 35k fans on Instagram as @Veganmakeupshare – so when she started getting numerous submissions from beauty companies claiming their real mink lashes were “cruelty-free” she had to speak up and make sure all of you knew the truth about mink lashes;

I’m so sick of hearing the lies most eyelash companies tell. Let’s get one thing straight – mink lashes are in no way cruelty-free. It’s completely impossible for them to be cruelty-free, don’t even consider the possibility.

Mink Lashes Are Not Cruelty-Free!

Mink Lashes Are Not Cruelty-Free!

These are some examples of what mink eyelash companies have tried to pitch me:

➡️”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. 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.

(Photos by Jo-Anne McArthur from the book We Animals)

Fur Farm Photos by Jo-Ann McArthur/ We-Animals


After seeing these images it should be obvious to you that cruelty-free mink lashes do not exist.  These eyelash companies just want your money.

Please support Cruelty-Free Lashes such as:

➡️ ELF cosmetics

➡️ Ardell Lashes

➡️ House of lashes

➡️ 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! Please use your dollar to vote and help the animals.

Minks fur is devastatingly “harvested” by skinning the mink alive, anal electrocution, slow poison deaths, engine exhaust, braking necks, and other cruel, unimaginable endings to innocent lives.

Jo-Anne McArthur’s photos capture these unbearable cruelties. We all owe her a great deal of thanks for her selfless work. Please check out her website to learn more and donate to her project, and buy her beautiful book.

    I’ve heard and read a lot of companies that say their lashes called “Mink” are not actually made of Mink and are faux, but that’s just the name of the style. Comments? Thoughts?

    • Nikki says:

      This website is misleading. They’re arguing that they aren’t cruelty free just because they breed them instead of letting them live wild even though they don’t harm them.

      That’s saying all zoos are cruelty
      So are all scientists who breed near extinction wild animals in captivity to save their species
      So are all pet owners.

      There are loads of lashes made from people who use found fur which is mink shedding off of their living quarters floor and bedding and brushing.
      I can’t stand this mentality and I bet you guys are all using plastic bottles and straws which is extremely detrimental to the ocean and well being of animals I’m a major way

      Used a straw? Congrats animals will suffer cause of you.

      • WHOOPSY — wrong attempted call on your part. They are 100% bred, killed, and tortured – no question about that. Zoos ARE generally speaking NOT good or natural for animals, AND NOPE we don’t use straws! Hope the fur industry is paying you well! Cheers!

More and more people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

  55. Thanks for revealing your ideas. I would also like to say that video games have been actually evolving. Better technology and inventions have helped create sensible and interactive games. These types of entertainment games were not really sensible when the actual concept was first being attempted. Just like other forms of electronics, video games also have had to grow as a result of many many years. This itself is testimony towards fast growth and development of video games.
