Going green and animal friendly with your make up is always hard, but finding eco friendly brushes can be one of your hardest tasks. I mean, most brushes are made out of animal hair or are made by brands who test on animals. After going all out on making sure your make up is all-around friendly, why on earth would you want to buy a brush like that? You wouldn’t, of course. We’ve taken the hassle out of finding eco-friendly brushes by making this nifty little list of all the best, most environmentally and animal friendly brushes on the market right now. Go ahead and take a look!
Bamboo Brush Set by ELF
This set comes with a complexion brush, concealer brush, blending eye blush, and mini Kabuki brush. Each brush is made out of recycled-aluminum ferrules, bamboo handles, and 100% cruelty-free Taklon bristles. This set is much less expensive than the rest of featured brushes (about $8) so it’s a great choice for the eco-friendly person with a small budget.
Nvey Makeup Brushes
This company is the proud pioneer who created the world’s first, and thus far only, compostable makeup brush. You really can’t get much better for the environment than that, now can you? Each brush is topped with professional-grade synthetic fibers. This is another brand that’s kind of on the higher side of price, with brushes ranging from $26 to $54.
Here we see the animal-friendly Taklon bristles again, along with recycled-aluminum ferrules, and a biodegradable bamboo handle. As a bonus, most Ecotools vanity sets come with a reusable pouch that is made from hemp and cotton, and most sets are extremely cheap. (A 6-piece brush set with reusable pouch can be bought at around $11.)
Taklon fibers, natural wooden handles, and somewhere in the moderate price range ($12-$25 per brush),these eco-friendly brushes look great, work great, and are great for the environment!
If you’re on the hunt for more cruelty free makeup brushes, remember that most are labeled as ‘cruelty free,’ ‘synthetic’ or ’100% Vegan.’ Keeping this in mind, what is your favorite makeup brush? Have you used any of our favorites? Let us know in the comments below!
