All synthetic eyelash extensions are made of a soft, thin plastic called polybutylene terephthalate (also known as polybutylene terephthalate). PBT is a semicrystalline thermoplastic polymer that is heated and then shaped to obtain the desired eyelash curl that hardens as it cools. We want you to be the best eyelash artist you can be, which means using the best professional eyelash extension supplies on the market. Even if an eyelash extension brand advertises that its eyelashes are “vegan” or obtained cruelty free, most animals that are caged for hair suffer endless suffering and abuse at the end of the day.
In addition to silk and mink, it is possible to find eyelash extensions made of fox, coyote and Marta fur. They are often hunted for their fur, which is then used to make a variety of products, including eyelash extensions.
