Being a girl I can understand the pain in finding the best shade for your lips. Finding a good brand that makes good shades, that suit your lips is such a pain. One-color can have many different shades but we don’t know how these colors are made.
How these companies find out that these cosmetic is suitable for humans. When we buy something we see the only item that is in front of our eyes but we don’t really check out it’s making process and ingredients.
Lipsticks are combination of three basic ingredients -oil, was, pigment. Pigment means color. Oil can be castor oil or cocoa butter or any. Many brands use “Beeswax” made with honey bees. In making honey bees die. Many colors are made from animals. Carmine is produced with the powdered scale insect bodies boiled in ammonia. cochineal bugs are used to make a red color. Some key animal ingredients to watch out for are beeswax, carmine, lanolin, tallow, and collagen. In the production of colors, insects are used. We don’t see any red or green dot on cosmetic products. Companies use chemical names that makes it hard to understand what and how it is made.
Products are tested on animals example monkeys and rabbits and other animals.
Now the real question arises that why any living being has to die only because we want to look good. Why we can’t choose cruelty-free things, where they don’t have to suffer. Many vegan brands are available that make cruelty free products why we can’t choose them.
Many companies in India make vegan lipsticks.
Vegan brands use cocoa butter, organic avocado butter, organic grape seed oil, and orange oil. The colors come from natural sources They mix and match their colors before finalizing a shade. There is no testing done on animals too.
Peta has approved products which you can choose for make-up.
I have tried some of the cruelty free brands like
These are free from fat and any kind of animal products.
Many of the companies either make only vegan products or make some. You can find them on Amazon or flipkart or on naykaa.
The best thing about vegan products is that they are free from cruelty. No animal products no testing on animals. In short, no life harmed. This is how it should be. Our life should be full of kindness and commissions for all living beings. Understanding that every life on this planet is equal is the first step toward veganism
