About Aether Lashes
WE BELIEVE BEAUTY SHOULD BE TRULY CRUELTY-FREE.
With the rise in popularity of mink fur lashes, we knew there had to be a fur-free, truly cruelty-free alternative. So we set out to offer lashes that are as lifelike, lightweight, and luxurious-feeling as mink – but are NON-FUR and vegan-friendly.
Our lashes are made from our cutting-edge, ultra-thin and soft signature synthetic fibers and are handcrafted in stunning, natural patterns.
Our mission here at Aether Lashes, is to not only provide the most lifelike, cutting-edge synthetic fur-free and genuinely 100% cruelty-free lashes, but to also raise awareness about the truth of so-called “cruelty-free” mink fur.
Minks are naturally territorial, solitary semi-aquatic animals.
Many mink lash companies claim to use naturally shed hairs from live minks to create their lashes.
While there may be some truth in saying the minks are not killed for lashes, it is likely that these minks are still kept captive at fur farms in tiny cages until they are ultimately killed and skinned for other fur products.
As for claims of sourcing fur from free-range mink farms, we had trouble finding any real sources of their existence.
On top of this, the idea promoted by some companies that minks are “gently brushed” for their fur is something extremely unlikely for creatures as solitary and territorial as minks.
This leaves the claim of cruelty-free mink lashes at best, a half-truth, or worse, deceptive marketing.
