Vegan & Cruelty-Free Nail Lacquer & Polish: Humane and Stylish
What is “Vegan” and “Cruelty-Free” Nail Lacquer?
Put simply, any vegan and cruelty-free nail product like vegan and cruelty-free nail lacquer is a product made with no animal ingredients and not tested on animals. Many nail polish manufacturers not only produce their product with animal fats and bi-products but also run inhumane tests on animals such as putting nail polish in their eyes. Here at Lazzara, we simply can’t support such a cruel practice nor the harvesting of animals for makeup. That’s why we’ve only produced vegan-friendly nail lacquer that’s cruelty-free and are more than happy to see other nail products joining the movement.
Why Do Beauty Brands Choose Animal Testing?
There are two main reasons why cosmetic companies still conduct animal testing despite the option to make their product vegan and cruelty-free. Many do so because they want to avoid lawsuits based upon injury from their product if a customer experiences any threat to their health while using their cosmetics. Usually this is a sign that their product contains harsh chemical ingredients. With Lazzara, we choose to test our nail lacquer with safe, approved lab testing methods that ensure our customers are safe and keep animals out of the lab.
The other main reason is that it enforced by law in China and other countries for any imported cosmetics to be tested on animals before it can sold. With the Chinese cosmetic industry in a boom right now, many international companies that care for profit more than animals are willing to submit to this law if it means they can sell more product.
Why Do Manufacturers Use Animal Ingredients?
Before the invention of vegan alternative ingredients in nail polish and lacquer, many nail companies opted for the use of animal products on the grounds that they were stronger, longer lasting, or had more shine to them. But, none of these substances are vital ingredients to produce nail polish, and they can be easily replaced with synthetic or plant-derived compounds with no reported drop in quality. For example, aluminum particles or faux pearls can be used instead of guanine and provide the same sparkling glitter effect.
Luckily, nowadays more and more beauty brands choose to make this change – it’s easier than ever to find vegan-friendly and cruelty-free alternatives to every cosmetic product.
