What Makes Confectioners Glaze & Shellac non-vegan?

Well confectioners glaze contains Shellac, and Shellac is made by lac bugs. Since Shellac is made by lac bugs it’s non-vegan, as well that by default means it’s an animal product, and to produce it en-mass like it is produced it requires extreme exploitation/ enslavement /containment of the lac bugs, and their lives and well-being are generally not considered at all during any period of their life.
