FAQs about Brow and Lash Serum:
Q: How long will it take?
A: I would give it two months, although you should see new eye lashes sprouting within a couple of weeks.
Q: What if it does not work for me?
A: It works for most people. If it doesn’t, see whether there is something else that is preventing eyelashes from growing. Maybe the cells in charge of growing lashes died out due to excess plucking, for example. Maybe there is an underlying medical condition. Make sure you take your multivitamins, any good quality brand will do. Finally, try to take a vacation from mascara. Most mascaras contain lots of wax and this ingredient may interfere with penetration of our serum or even block the follicle.
Q: Is it bad to get it on the lid ---- don't want to grow hair there ;)
A: First of all, your eyelid will NOT grow lashes, simply because those skin cells are not programmed to grow hair. If the serum goes anywhere else but the cells in charge of growing eyelashes all it is going to do is provide some nutrition. Even if it gets in the eye, at most it may sting but it will not change the eye color (as some prescription products do).
KGF: This protein (19,000 molecular weight) is also known as FGF-7 and heparin-binding growth factor-7 (HBGF-7). KGF is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family and has been found to stimulate hair growth in vitro. Cells that respond to KGF do so because they have receptors on the cell membrane that recognize the factor (which has been produced by cells that may be near or far from the target cell). The binding of the growth factor to the receptor initiates a cascade of molecular events that will eventually lead, among other effects, to cell division.
Sea Kelp Bioferment: This provides complete nutrient supply and moisture. The substrate for fermentation is a sea macroalgae rich in caragenaan, algin, minerals, and many active chemicals. Fermentation makes the cell contents of this algae readily available to your skin, moisturizing it and providing nutrients.
Carnitine: L-Carnitine and derivatives, like acetyl carnitine, carry activated fatty acids through the mostly impermeable inner mitochondrial membrane, allowing the respiration of fatty acids. The activated fatty acid (Acyl-CoA) cannot pass through the membrane, but there is a special translocator for Acyl-carnitine. Once carnitine releases the fatty acid it carries (a process involving a tranferase), carnitine can go out again and take up another activated fatty acid. L-carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid lysine, and it is named after the material it was first isolated from, meat (carnus in Latin), in 1905. It was first believed to be a vitamin, and called vitamin BT, but humans can synthesize L-carnitine. However, under certain conditions and depending on the diet, the demand for L-carnitine may exceed an individual's capacity to synthesize it, making it a "conditionally essential nutrient".
Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins: This antioxidant active can help encourage hair growth. Derived from the seeds of both red and white grapes, grape (Vitis vinifera) seed extract, containing 95% proanthocyanidins, is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants and a major free radical scavenger. These flavonoids protect capillary walls and inhibit the enzymes that break down collagen (collagenase), hyaluronic acid (hyaluronidase), and elastin (elastase).
Saw Palmetto: Serenoa repens sterols have been shown to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase activity, the enzyme responsible for conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. The have also been shown to inhibit binding of dihydrotestosterone to the cytosolic androgen receptor.
