Animal lovers, beware. Chances are, there are traces of dead animal in your cosmetics, which is why many people are opting to use vegan makeup in order to avoid using animal and human-based products. Many cosmetics contain non-vegan ingredients such as beeswax, elastin (derived from cows), collagen (from humans or animals) as well as carmine (from cochineal or smashed bugs). Even if the product does not contain animal products, many cosmetics test their products on animals. By using vegan makeup, not only are you avoiding various toxins and dangerous ingredients, but you are also contributing to the welfare of animals everywhere.
