What are Siberian Mink Lashes?

There was a time when only A-list stars were privileged enough to wear real mink eyelashes. Today, you can feel like Hollywood royalty without paying the high-end price thanks to Minki Lashes who exclusively offers the most exquisite and luxurious kind of false eyelashes made of 100% authentic and cruelty-free Siberian mink fur. Below are the 10 facts about Siberian mink lashes you should know before purchasing your very own pair!

Siberian Mink Lashes vs Faux Mink vs Human Hair

1. There Are No Worthy Replicas!

No faux lash material on the market is able to perfectly replicate real Siberian mink. You’ve heard false claims that because faux mink or silk lashes also have tapered tips and are of different lengths, they look just as good as the real thing. Not a chance, my Royal Lashaholics! Siberian mink lashes have 2 unique features listed in #2 that simply cannot be achieved with regular synthetic false eyelashes, human hair eyelashes, faux mink or silk lashes, the latest lash length and volume building mascara or other cheaper real mink types!

2. Majestically Lustrous Sheen & Shaggy Curl

No picture can do justice to authentic Siberian mink lashes’ glossy, delicate and fluttery fringe that is so envy-worthy!  Thanks to the minks’ natural adaptation to Siberia’s cold climate that resulted in longer, stronger, fluffier and shaggier fur growth, Siberian mink lashes offer supreme smoothness, softness, fluttery curl and rich black color. Siberian mink is the finest in the world for luxury mink lashes!

3. Durable & Long-Lasting

Real Siberian mink fur is delicate yet well known for its durability. In fact, with proper care and quality of individual animals, mink fur can last 30 years. No wonder Minki Lashes can last 25 wears! Note that synthetic eyelashes should be discarded after 1-3 uses as they may start to release harmful and potentially carcinogenic chemicals, while real mink fur eyelashes don’t.

4. Volume Without Extra Weight

While being one of the softest fur types in the world, mink fur can be quite dense. Because individual mink fur hairs are virtually weightless and are about 3 times lighter in weight than their synthetic counterparts, Minki Lashes are able to provide more natural-looking volume without adding the extra weight. Authentic Siberian mink lashes are enviously thick yet enviously light and delicately fluttery to wear, with a lash diameter of about 0.10 to 0.15 mm, which is way thinner and easier on the eyes than the conventional synthetic lashes. High volume and light weight? Not that’s one royal combination!

5. No Chemicals or Dyes

Minki Lashes uses mink fur from shedding black live minks whose fur is so naturally rich and deep in colour and glossy in surface that no artificial treatments are required to bring out their eye catching allure. And because the same pair of Siberian mink lashes is not meant to be worn for years at a time, long-lasting fur preservation treatments are not required, either. You are getting naturally sterilized elite black eyelashes that are suitable even for sensitive eyes!

6. 100% Handmade = Expect Perfect Imperfections!

Because no machine can properly attach the individual real fur hairs to the lash band while preserving the shaggy texture, Minki Lashes are 100% handmade. This is why every Minki Lashes pair is somewhat unique with slight variations in lash length, spacing and curl. Every lash pair is professionally hand curled to perfection and attached to a very flexible cotton lash band at the base.

7. Luxury Without Cruelty

The real mink fur used to create the luxurious lashes is obtained by gently brushing live minks at free-range farms in Siberia, Russia during mink shedding seasons. No animals are hurt in the process. Siberian minks are meticulously cared for and well fed in a free-range environment by their farmers. Because the finest quality fur comes from the finest care, farmers must adhere to the minks’ nutritional requirements that vary during the growing and reproductive periods, as well as strict governmental and agricultural regulations to guarantee the highest standards of humane care.  All raw fur materials are imported from a Siberian region where the highest quality mink fur available on the global market comes from. The Siberian mink lashes are then assembled by hand in the Minki Lashes manufacturing facility in Asia.

8. Eco-Friendlier Choice

Unlike its faux alternatives, authentic mink fur is a renewable biodegradable resource and will eventually disintegrate without proper care. Faux materials used to create synthetic, faux mink or silk lashes, are all petroleum-based and will, once disposed of, clog landfills for centuries. Eyes in plastic ain’t all that fantastic after all! Furthermore, as minks receive a rich diet with carefully measured protein and fat content, based around expired produce and otherwise inedible animal by-products such as old chickens and expired eggs, they help to maintain the beneficial green recycling cycle within our ecosystem. And that helps keep the prices of human consumption products low! Now that sounds pretty eco-friendly to me!

9. Price Is a Factor!

We all know that royalty-worthy luxury costs a pretty penny. Until recently, real mink eyelashes were custom made at an eye-popping cost of thousands of dollars for Hollywood royalty like Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah and others. However, thanks to them virtually creating this prestige beauty trend that has since been sweeping across the nation, the increased demand for eco-friendly cruelty-free real mink lashes has pushed the cost down. This made it possible for a passionate entrepreneur such as myself to bring the luxurious Minki Lashes product to the market and make it available at a very affordable price and overall fantastic value. I want all my Royal Minkiholics to have access to the highest quality Siberian mink lashes on the market and help them look and feel like celebrities without breaking the bank!

10. Beware Royal Impostors!

Yup, now that real mink lashes are taking over the world, it’s becoming more challenging to differentiate between low and high quality product. Did you know that cheaper “real” mink lashes brands may actually be adding other faux or low quality fur materials (that are not even always mink!) to your false eyelashes strips? Some even go as far as dying other lighter coloured mink fur that is of a cheaper value, with harsh chemicals, in order to give it that rich black shade! Worry no more as with Minki Lashes, you are getting 100% authentic Siberian mink lashes that are made from only the finest and best quality black mink fur!
