Growing lashes and brows with prostaglandin free eyelash serum
We reviewed scientific literature searching for the role of prostaglandin analogues in eyelash serums. Prostaglandin analogues, derived from endogenous prostaglandins, have recently gained attention for their potential to promote eyelash growth. By analyzing clinical studies, mechanisms of action, and efficacy, we would like to provide a comprehensive overview of the use of prostaglandin analogues in enhancing eyelash length, thickness, and appearance. The findings shed light on their safety and considerations for daily use in eyelash enhancement serums. This short article summarises some available products to help grow longer lashes and fuller brows.
1. Are they safe to use?
Some eyelash & eyebrow growth products contain prostaglandin analogues or other potentially risky ingredients. These are lipids created by fatty acids found in most tissues and organs in the body. Specifically, these prostaglandin analogues control processes in the body, including blood flow, clotting, and inflammation, as part of the natural healing process.
Side effects of prostaglandin analogues
The first use of prostaglandin analogues was to help cure an eye disease called glaucoma. However, by coincidence, scientists discovered that they also have the surprising side-effect of increasing eyelash growth. But unfortunately, prostaglandins can also permanently change eye colour (blue eyes become brown) or tint eyelids. And in addition, they can cause more severe side effects, including blurred vision, increased light sensitivity, stinging, itchiness, redness, and a burning sensation.
Other names for prostaglandin analogues
Consequently, if you want to avoid prostaglandin analogues, you need to look out for ingredient names that mean they’re prostaglandin, like Bitamoprost, Isopropanol Phenyl-hydroxy-pentene dihydroxy-cyclopentyl-heptanoate. Alternatively, don’t use products with these ingredients either: Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide or Trifluoromethyl Dechloro Ethylprostenolamide.
Steer clear of prostaglandin analogues in eyelash serums or any other cosmetics you buy parabens, phthalates, or sulphates (sulfates), as they can seriously disturb your skin’s biome increasing eyelid irritation. A quick Google search will highlight the issues with these.
2. Do they include any other active ingredients for eyelash & eyebrow health?
There are many great ingredients found in eyelash and eyebrow products, including hyaluronic acid, castor oil, and panthenol. However, their role is supportive; they act as conditioners and help strengthen lashes against breakage. Unfortunately, they may not stimulate hair growth. More often than, lash serums with prostaglandin analogues don’t include any other supportive ingredients. Most of them on the serum INCI list are simply functional ingredients to maintain the prostaglandin analogues and nothing else.
3. How long do I need to use it for?
Importantly to maintain hair growth benefits from prostaglandin analogues in eyelash growth serums, you must keep using them continuously, or their benefits will start wearing off. At the same time, countries like Australia ban the continuous use of prostaglandin serums for eyebrow and eyelash growth for more than 12 months.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) was recently interviewed about these risks on Seven Sharp, a high-rating nightly current affairs program on TVNZ 1.
Since the 1990s, studies have shown that eyelash growth is linked to prostaglandin analogues. On that basis, several beauty industry organizations release products, including eyelash growth serums, some of which contain small amounts of the drug prostaglandin analogues. These are sold as over-the-counter products due to the small quantities of prostaglandin analogues.
In our ophthalmologists’ experience, prostaglandin eye drops cause predictable side effects. However, the exact pattern of side effects that each patient experiences is unpredictable. Ocular irritation, redness, iris hyperpigmentation, excessive hair growth, blepharitis, skin hyperpigmentation, and periorbitopathy are most common. Patients taking prostaglandins for years usually get a combination of these.
RANZCO believes consumers should know the complete list of possible ocular and periocular side effects.
