A Guide for Lash Techs on Using Vegan Products for Eyelash Extensions

If you're looking to take your lash game to the next level while staying true to your values, you're in for a treat. In this blog post, we're delving into the world of vegan lash products for eyelash extensions - a path that not only showcases your expertise but also aligns with the compassionate choices we make as professionals.

Why Opt for Vegan Lash Products in Your Beauty Room?

Let's discuss why incorporating vegan lash products into your eyelash extension treatments is a remarkable step. As a Lash Technician, your expertise is built on enhancing beauty, and using vegan-friendly products allows you to do so with a conscience. Vegan products are free from animal-derived ingredients and are often formulated using plant-based alternatives, reducing harm to animals and promoting a more sustainable beauty industry. More and more clients are seeking vegan options, not just for their diets but also for their beauty routines. By offering treatments using vegan lash extension products, you're not only meeting this demand but also aligning your services with the values of compassion and sustainability.

Understanding Ingredients

To confidently offer vegan-friendly services, it's essential to understand the ingredients in the products you use. Familiarise yourself with common non-vegan ingredients, such as keratin and collagen, and opt for products that replace these with plant-derived alternatives. Many vegan lash products use ingredients like soy protein, plant extracts, and synthetic polymers to achieve the desired results.

Communicating with Clients

Educate your clients about the benefits of using vegan products during their lash extension sessions. Many clients are becoming more conscious of their choices and will appreciate your commitment to ethical and cruelty-free practices. Explain the advantages of vegan products for their lashes and overall well-being, and highlight that they don't need to compromise on quality or beauty.

Vegan-Friendly Eyelash Extension Glues: Quality and Performance

One of the primary concerns when using vegan products is whether they'll match up to their non-vegan counterparts in terms of performance. Rest assured, vegan eyelash extension glues have come a long way in terms of quality and durability. There are now high-quality vegan lash extension glues available that rival their non-vegan counterparts in performance. 

Vegan Lash Glues: A Strong Foundation

Let's talk about the glue that holds everything together! When it comes to vegan lash glue, you're not compromising on performance one bit. They are designed to give you a solid bond that lasts, minus the animal-derived ingredients. That's a win-win for your clients and the environment. And it’s because of this that we are proud to say that our eyelash extension glues – Crystal Bond, Lady Bond, Royal Bond, and Satin Bond, have been certified by the Vegan Society as vegan lash products! Our lash glues tick all the right boxes: strong hold, low fumes, a quick-drying nature, and, most importantly - they’re formulated without any animal-derived ingredients or byproducts! Any of our eyelash extension glues which aren't yet vegan certified still aren't created using any animal byproducts and are vegan-friendly too, but as the process is quite lengthy some products are still being assessed and updates will happen from time to time. We've always striven for a cruelty-free and sustainable product line, this just makes it official!

Attend workshops, conferences, and online lash courses that focus on vegan lash extension techniques and products to ensure you're offering the best services to your clients. 

London Lash Top Tip:If you’re wondering about which of our other lash products have been certified as vegan by the Vegan Society, then keep an eye out for the handy Vegan Trademark on our product images and labels that will ONLY be used on our verified products! Don’t see a trademark? Don’t worry! Products are being verified and checked over all the time so you may not see the trademark on everything all at once. If you’re not sure about something, feel free to ask!
