It turns out, our lashes aren’t the only thing that can be helped by mascara wands.
After years learning about cosmetic animal testing and its dire effects, beauty and animal enthusiasts now finally have a way to use a beauty product to help animals instead of harm them.
Savannah Trantham, an animal rehabilitator and Co-founder of Appalachian Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina, turned to Facebook last Friday to share a post to showcase how animals can benefit from mascara wands.
“There’s so many simple ways that can help wildlife that literally start in your own backyard or in your kitchen,” she told WLOS ABC 13 in an interview.
In her post, she explains how mascara wands can help clean animals by being used to remove larva and fly eggs that get stuck in their fur. She writes, “they work great because the bristles are so close together.”
Now, with over 50,000 shares of the post, beauty and animal lovers from all over are responding. So much so, that the Appalachian Wildlife also posted to Facebook to express gratitude over the outpour of support they’ve gotten.
Turns out, mascara wands are the most magical of them all.
