There was a time when the very idea of having vegan make up for men would seem nearly impossible if not silly to the masses. Even today most products are being tested on animals before hitting the shelves or atleast using animal by-products, like stearic acid found in pig’s stomach or honey. Other animal derivatives like silk, snail gel, pearl, lanolin, milk, and animal protein can also be found in skincare products.
Here is another set of products, which again till a few years ago would have seemed alien to most of the world. Makeup for men. Men are becoming ever more conscious of their image and many celebrities have promoted the idea that it is not as taboo as once thought.
