Cosmetic company to go vegan

There’s nothing better when a product you love cares about the same causes and concerns you do — just look at Hourglass Cosmetics.

According to Glamour, the company is pledging that by 2020, all of their products will be 100 percent vegan. While Glamour says that a significant portion of their products are already produced cruelty-free, the move to be entirely vegan comes as a way for the company to commemorate World Vegan Day.

Glamour reports that the changes may come in the form of removing commonly-found animal by-product ingredients in makeup such as beeswax and Carmine, a dye that is crafted from beetles’ wings (typically categorized as “CI 75470” on makeup ingredients lists). But because the majority of their products are already vegan, Glamour says only a handful of products may genuinely be affected, including their Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder and their Modernist Eyeshadow Palette, among others.
