We all want them. Thick, long, lush lashes.

It is commonly thought that having eyelashes that appear thicker, longer and give a more voluminous feeling to the eyelashes is aesthetically pleasing. In order to achieve great lashes many of us turn to mascara and false eyelashes. Hair on the eyelashes and eyebrows have a very short active growth phase of only about 30-45 days and approximately 60-80% of the eyelashes the growth phase. But can we grow thicker longer lashes that provide a more natural, healthy and vibrant appearance that do not suffer from smudging or smearing from mascara, and or an artificial appearance like false eyelashes.

The answer is YES, and the solution is lash and brow growth serums. Many growth serums uses peptides instead of prescription base prostagladin drugs to encourage eyelash growth without the drugs awful side affects. These peptides encourage eyelash growth through stimulating the keratin genes responsible for long, thick lashes. The most proven peptide is Myristoyl Pentapeptide 17, which has five amino acids. When the peptide is used on the lash and brow it stimulates and feeds the lashes that are in the growth phase. Under the scientific study (Symrise) the Myristoyl Pentapeptide 17 needs to be at 10% level to give the desired result.

The problem is choosing a brand that is safe and that actually delivers on that promise. The main problem is wether the lash growing serums has enough of this peptide to be effective. So the first thing you need to do is look at the ingredient list and see where the growth serum is located on that list. The farther down they appear on the ingredient list, the smaller the amount of active peptides used in the serum and the less likely to have good results. This means that the peptide needs to be listed withing the middle of the ingredient list. From my calculation of raw ingredients if your lash growth serum is not costing between $65 to $125 then they have used inferior ingredients or lacking the correct amount of growth peptide that is needed.

In the next couple of months you will see Zen Dejour releasing a Lash and Brow Grown Serum. Above you can see the preliminary findings
