DUO EYELASH GLUE & THE DANGERS OF ALL EYELASH ADHESIVES
Lash glues have been rated amongst the most toxic of all beauty products on the market today for its high concentration of chemicals such as formaldehyde. Formaldehyde has been linked to developmental or reproductive toxicity, organ system toxicity, and neurotoxicity and is a confirmed carcinogen by the National Cancer Society. All of the glues on the market today contain some form of harsh chemicals. Ingredients such as latex which cause allergic reactions in many individuals, ammonia, phthalates and many others. When the glue is drying and setting it’s also releasing these chemicals into the air that we are breathing and can cause asthma like symptoms. Current lash glue products that claim to not have harsh chemicals in them still actually do, including sodium dodecylbenzenesulfanate. Sodium dodecylbenzenesulfanate is a skin and eye irritant that can actually cause permanent damage to your eyes.
In addition to these health problems, these harsh chemicals are prematurely aging the eye area and making your lashes dry, brittle and potentially sparse. We were as shocked as you probably are! This is what led us to develop the first all-natural adhesive on the market so we can wear our favorite eyelashes without putting our health, our eyes and our beauty at risk. True Glue was the solution to our problem. True Glue contains soothing, and anti-aging agents to soothe the eyelids instead of irritating them. Chamomile extract is one of such ingredients, proven to calm skin and be a natural anti-inflammatory.
