One thing after going vegan was figuring out how many materials that I used in my everyday life which contained animal products.
Did you know that many makeup brushes are made with real animal hair?
Some of the animals that contribute to the beauty industry;
- Squirrels (what?!)
One company that I was particularly impressed with is 100% Pure. The company’s mission is “to live with compassion, kindness and empathy; to be environmentally sustainable and to improve the lives of 6 billion people and animals while also being charitable and giving back to our global community.” Not only are they using synthetic fibers for their makeup brushes, but they also create fruit dyes makeup- more on this later!
Reasons to use synthetic fibers over animal hair:
- Easier to clean
- Allergy free
- Last longer
- Cruelty free!
