False eyelashes are sometimes made of mink fur, and yes, they likely come from animals incarcerated on the same miserable and dirty fur farms that supply the fashion industry. Have you ever wondered if your false eyelash extensions are made with the hair of an adorable mammal called mink? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. More than 50 million minks are raised around the world every year, mainly because of their fur. Of course, there are also mink eyelash extensions made of real mink fur, such as BL Natural (Real Mink) eyelashes.But it's not just large and exorbitantly expensive mink fur garments that still creep into our stores.

According to Elux magazine, most eyelash glues are generally packed with intense and harmful substances. They are mink skins that have been shaved off the body of a mink (either just before or immediately after the animal is killed on a fur farm) that are then glued in tufts to a human's eyelashes to achieve a “fuller and thicker look”.Add depth to the lower lash line and create a more cohesive look with mink lashes for lower eyelash extension. People spend hundreds of dollars every month on eyelash extension treatments, on the purchase of mascara and false eyelashes, and they have no idea if what they receive is truly vegan or not cruelty-free.This flat shape allows eyelash extensions to truly adapt to natural lashes, allowing for longer retention than mink lashes. Thanks to the sections of the BL Laser eyelashes that hold the glue, the adhesive is prevented from forming a drop of glue at the root of the extension tab.
