Nowadays, many people have to turn into mink lashes for the alternatives for them to achieve a fuller and thicker lashes on their eyes. Mink lashes is mink’s fur that has been shaved off a mink’s body.
The process of collecting this fur has always been claimed as a “cruelty-free” process. Other than that, the process also claimed as “safely collected from a free-range farm” or even “taken only after the minks have been brushed“. On contrary, the truth proved otherwise.
The hard truth is, all the poor minks are confined to a small, depressing, and cramped wire cages in highly unsanitary conditions. In nature, minks can travel several miles in a single day. That is how they suppose to live in wildlife.
To achieve the mink’s fur, the minks are bred and then slaughtered on fur farms worldwide for their soft fur. Farmers usually kill them brutally inside a gas chamber. All those journeys have to be faced by the helpless mink and that is why we have to boycott any products that are made from mink’s fur. If you ever purchase a mink fur coat or a set of mink lashes, you’re literally are supporting an industry in which animals endure immense fear, stress, disease, parasites, and other physical and psychological hardships throughout their life.
