WHY IT WORKS
Castor oil is comprised of vitamin E, minerals, proteins and antibacterial properties. It conditions the lashes and make them soft and shiny. It helps to stimulate the hair growth thereby making them appear dense and thicker. Castor oil strengthens hair follicles/lash follicles, prevents them from breaking and can also at places where they are not present in abundance.
Almond oil is the natural oil that comes from sweet almond kernels. Being rich in vitamin E, monounsaturated fats and minerals such as magnesium and calcium, it is a good source of nourishment for the eyelashes. It effectively moisturizes the lashes, makes them soft and less prone to breakage. Its lightweight and less greasy formula is perfect for the eyes, providing comfort during application. The natural pH balance of this oil is essential to the growth of healthy eyelashes.
ALOE VERA GEL
Aloe vera has rich moisturising properties as well as significant enzymes that makes a great base for the homemade eyelash growth serum. It acts as a preservative that increases the shelf-life of the serum. Aloe vera gel heals and nurtures the skin around your eyes, softens hair and encourages silkier hair growth.
