Let’s make this clear MD LashFactor® is an eyelash conditioner first and foremost, the question from Dr.Susan Lin is “How many layers of mascara do you need to apply each morning?” if you focus on the condition of your lashes and many do not, but if you do you can enhance their appearance to healthy fuller looking lashes. Meeting with the MD LashFactor® team at Cosmoprof, I was given an in depth understanding about lash conditioning.
The key for the consumer is to consider as with every cosmetic product you use on your skin, what ingredients do I need and what are the ones I can do without. Dr. Susan Lin who is an OB/GYN created patent pending MD LashFactor® 7 years ago she will tell you clearly, that MD LashFactor® uses Cystokines a natural anti-oxidant that conditions the hair follicle so that the lashes can reach their full potential, as well as Thiotanine, a powerful mushroom derived peptide that will protect your eyelashes. MD LashFactor® is Prostaglandin Free, safe for sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers and ophthalmologist tested.
Reaching the lashes full potential is just that, to condition your lashes requires that you use the product every night between 4 -6 weeks, once the potential is reached, you only need to use it 2 – 3 times a week, it is not necessary to use it every night.
The formulation’s benefits are 1) Prostaglandin Free, 2) Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, 3) Ophthalmologist tested. On February 8, 2011, MD LashFactor® Dr Susan Lin M.D. was awarded the prestigious Product of the Year award in the Cosmetics Category at the annual Product of the Year Awards Show.
Citing that the revolutionary eyelash conditioner featured a safe and effective formula that dramatically improved the lashes to make them look fuller, thicker, and longer, additionally the cutting edge product is a physician formulated complex developed specifically to work at the cellular level to help eyelashes reach their fullest potential.
Recently in April 2011 the FDA issued a warning letter to certain manufactures of Lash conditioning products noting that certain ingredients considered by the FDA as being toxic or potentially harmful were to be removed from the products one such ingredient, isopropyl cloprostenate, the FDA warns that “Patients using these products concurrently with intraocular pressure lowering medication should be closely monitored for changes to their intraocular pressure. Other potential adverse events associated with prostaglandin analogs for ophthalmic use include ocular irritation, hyperemia, iris color change, macular edema, ocular inflammation, and interference with glaucoma therapy. In addition, prostaglandin analogs for ophthalmic use are currently classified as Pregnancy Class C.4”
So know your chemicals especially ones the FDA consider not suitable for your lash follicles, ensure the lash conditioning product you intend to use has a good track record, read up about the Doctor and medical company in question who developed the product. Visit their web site and review all available medical supporting documents, if the product has completed rigorous testing, complied with FDA requirements then all supporting information will be there.
