Mink eyelashes (the real ones) are the only one natural. Those are the only one not made from synthetic fiver but are directly fur from the actual animal. The fact that they come from animals it opens the discussion of eyelash extensions beyond beauty means. Additionally, many producers does not help much as it is really difficult to get any information of what is the process to extract the fur from the animals, how animals are actually kept.
As in previous occasions, we like to remember the reader that our core knowledge is beauty treatments and products. But not environmental or animal cruelty subject. Like everybody we have an opinion on those subject but we don’t see ourselves to be capable to provide an objective message on this matters. Consequently, if the reader is interested to go further on those details we recommend googling about mink extensions per producer.
Going back to beauty, in many occasions it is really difficult to distinguish faux mink from real mink extensions. In some cases, to be able to differentiate one from another the only way is to wet them. The fake extension will keep the shape. If the extension is made from natural fivers it will compact like your natural lashes and you will need an eyelash brush or a curler to give back the desired shape.
