Foltène are well known for their hair care products, and have been leading the way in preventing hair loss and improving hair growth for many years. They have recently taken this knowledge, applied it to the lashes, and introduced Foltène Pharma Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment to the market.
Similarly to the hair on your head, eyelash growth can be negatively affected by the environment, poor diet and stress. Additionally, the application of makeup and treatments like tinting and curling (with chemicals and heated devices) can contribute to the depletion of keratin (the protein responsible for good hair health), resulting in lashes that are dull, weak, short and sparse.
In contrast to the hair on your head, which can grow for years, eyelashes grow for only a few weeks. Foltène Pharma Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment targets the life cycle of the lashes and improves their appearance by extending this short growth stage.
How it works!
The active ingredients, Tricalgoxyl (derived from marine algae) and Hamamelis virginiana (a plant extract), repair, strengthen, nourish and protect each lash, prolonging its growth phase, which results in the production of a longer, fuller and stronger hair. Additionally, because the hair is healthier the rate at which it falls out is slowed.
How to apply it!
Foltène Pharma Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment is a clear serum that comes packaged like a mascara. To apply it, simply pull the wand through clean lashes from root to tip, morning and night. This product can also be brushed through the eyebrows to boost brow growth.
Who can use it?
Foltène Pharma Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment has been ophthalmologically tested, and is safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. This product doesn’t contain prostaglandin (a hormone-like substance commonly found in other lash builders), which has been known to cause the iris of the eye to darken in some users.
I used Foltène Pharma Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment religiously for eight weeks on my top lashes and can see a visible difference in their condition. They definitely look longer and glossier, and my lash line looks fuller. This product also doubles as a perfect lash primer – I wore my mascara over it every day without any issues.
