If you wouldn’t wear animal fur then you definitely don’t want it in your brushes ~ makeup, shaving and art brushes.
Every year, millions of animals are trapped, drowned and beaten to death in the wild for their fur. They die an agonising death before being skinned for their fur.
Squirrels are hunted or trapped for makeup brushes. Many makeup brushes are manufactured in developing countries where there are inadequate animal protection laws. These brushes are then sold on international markets.
This fur is known as “forgotten fur”, as many consumers don’t realise that genuine fur is used in non-clothing items.
Please always be sure that your products are cruelty free.
