What ingredients are present in an eyelash enhancing serum?
It’s perfectly alright to be skeptical of lash serums. Who wouldn’t raise an eyebrow at a product that claims to be potent enough to grow your lashes naturally? As with most things that work, the formulations behind effective eyelash enhancing serums are backed by years of research testing and trustworthy customer feedback.
There’s a laundry list of ingredients that make up any eyelash serum. The top two that experts advise us to look out for are biotin and peptides. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an integral part in the growth of hair, skin, and nails. Naturally present in food such as fish, eggs, meat, and nuts, it is also available to purchase as a dietary supplement. Peptides are short chains of between 2 to 50 amino acids. These protein fragments promote hair growth from within the follicle, lengthening the growth cycle in the process.
On the opposite end of the ingredient spectrum are prostaglandins, lipids that contribute to lash growth through hormone-like effects. Present in specific serums, these are not entirely safe, as they are known to change pupil color due to the stimulation of melanin around the eye area and may cause discoloration on the eyelid and surrounding skin.
What is the best eyelash enhancing serum?
Scandinavian Biolabs’ Eyelash Growth Serum is developed with a multi-peptide Bio-Pilixin® formula that is all-natural and 100% vegan. Safe for sensitive skin, it is designed to promote lash growth by soothing and nourishing the hair follicles, strengthening the integrity of the lash and creating a protective layer around each strand. Due to its active ingredients, the serum also counteracts the depletion of lash hair by epigenetically resetting the follicle and nurturing the skin in the surrounding area.
Benefits include the following:
- Increases lash density and growth
- Moisturizes and nourishes eyelash follicles
- Repairs damage caused by beauty products
- Enhances the appearance of natural eyelashes
- Formulated without sulfates, silicones, parabens, and prostaglandins
Our team of scientists chose only natural and scientifically effective ingredients in formulating the Eyelash Growth Serum, with each one performing a unique function. All elements have passed several tests, proving them safe for use. It is worth noting that this serum does not contain prostaglandins.
Key active ingredients include:
- Capilia Longa, a secretome concentration of totipotent cells that works to achieve an epigenetic reset of the hair bulb;
- D-Biotin B7, a water-soluble vitamin that assists in hair regrowth, improves hair quality, and increases the body’s ability to absorb protein;
- D-Panthenol 75W, an aqueous solution stabilized with citric acid that moisturizes hair follicles, increases the diameter of hair strands, and influences growth;
- Amaranth, a water-soluble natural plant source that increases volume, adds shine and gloss, and helps prevent damage;
- Bespoke Amino-Acid Blend, a blend that improves hair strength and shine, and strengthens strands against external factors;
- Glycoin, a multi-functional anti-aging active ingredient that regenerates skin cells;
- Myristoyl MP17, a micro protein that repairs follicles, promotes rapid regrowth as an assist to the serum’s turnaround time; and
- Biotinoyl Tripeptide, a combination of Vitamin H and Matrikine series GHK that stimulates growth, prevents shedding, and restores volume and shine.
Any side effects that occur may be a result of pre-existing conditions. Such cases are rare, though, and do not impact a user’s general health. Should irritation persist, it is recommended to see your care specialist.
How is this applied? When can we expect to see results?
Directions for use:
- Step 1: Ensure the eyelashes and eye area are free of make-up or skincare products.
- Step 2: Apply the Eyelash Growth Serum where the lashes meet the skin, as you would with a liquid liner. Leave it on for at least 6 hours before cleansing.
- Step 3: Use the serum 1-2 times daily, morning, and night.
Visible results start appearing after 4 to 6 weeks of persistent use. This, of course, depends on how receptive a user is to the product and its active ingredients. The Bio-Pilixin® formula is scientifically proven to begin producing stronger and healthier lashes within the first week. Shedding is greatly reduced around the fifth week of use.
Eyelashes follow a natural growth cycle, beginning with the emergence of the lash and ending with the lash detaching from the follicle. On average, a person is said to shed 1-4 lashes a day. The serum provides that much-needed boost during the growth phase.
It is highly recommended to use the product for at least 150 days to achieve and retain optimum results. Should you stop treatment, your lashes will go back to their previous condition, albeit slowly due to the effectiveness of the active ingredients present in the serum.
