Enhance Eyelashes Naturally

Best product for eyelash growth and thickness

Aging can take a heavy toll on the eyelashes, making them noticeably thinner, shorter, and more brittle. Many people resort to commercial products to create an illusion of improvement, but they fail to address the underlying causes.

Current treatments include drugs originally developed to treat glaucoma.1 The hefty price tag and side effects associated with these drugs prompted scientists to search for safer alternatives.2,3

In this article, you’ll learn how scientists uncovered natural compounds that work in complementary ways to protect and strengthen the structural foundation of eyelashes—naturally making them healthier, longer, and thicker.

Getting to the Root of Eyelash Growth

Stem cells are responsible for the constant self-renewal and repair of the skin. They have the unique ability to either remain a stem cell or transform into a specialized cell type through cell division.4 Research shows that stem cells reside at the base of each hair follicle where they facilitate hair regeneration.5 These are referred to as hair follicle stem cells.

Each eyelash follicle rotates through the same three stages of growth as other body hair follicles. The first stage (anagen) is the growth phase that lasts roughly one to two months.6 It is characterized by stem cells giving rise to specialized cells called keratinocytes with two main functions: 1) producing the hair shaft visible above the skin, and 2) synthesizing the tough and fibrous protein keratin that adds fullness, length, and strength to the hair shaft.7-9

As the eyelash follicle enters the second or transitional stage (catagen), which lasts approximately two weeks, it begins to shrink and hair growth ceases. In the third and final stage (telogen), the eyelash follicle becomes active once again, producing new hair that emerges from the skin’s surface by pushing out old hair to shed naturally. Telogen is the longest phase for eyelashes, lasting around four to nine months.6

As a person ages, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation compromises the regenerative capacity of hair follicle stem cells.10 Keratin production also diminishes in hair follicles.11 Together, these age-associated changes lead to the outward appearance of weak, thin, and short eyelashes.

Fortunately, scientists have uncovered compounds that effectively target these changes to improve the appearance of eyelashes.

Novel Plant Extract Safeguards against Ultraviolet Radiation

Ultraviolet radiation induces oxidative stress in hair follicle stem cells that reduces their vitality and activity, in turn diminishing the health and longevity of the eyelashes.12,13 Scientists began investigating safe and effective compounds that protect hair follicle stem cells against the consequences of sun exposure. Plant stem cells derived from a rare grape variety quickly stood out.

Gamay Teinturier Fréaux grapes grow in an east-central region of France. They have red flesh and juice that signifies a high content of anthocyanins, flavonoids that combat oxidative stress through potent free radical scavenging activity.14,15 The unique synergy between anthocyanins and other metabolites present in the grape provides frontline defense against ultraviolet damage.16

The capacity of stem cells to form colonies, known as colony-forming efficiency, is a key measure of their vitality and activity. Ultraviolet radiation has been shown to decrease colony-forming efficiency. Researchers conducted a laboratory experiment in which skin stem cells were treated with or without grape stem cell extract before exposure to ultraviolet radiation. While untreated cells experienced a 58% decrease in colony-forming efficiency, no changes were seen in treated cells. This demonstrated that treated cells were safeguarded against harmful ultraviolet radiation.16

Let’s now take a look at how a recently developed peptide significantly enhances eyelash growth.

Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 Stimulates Eyelash Growth
The formation of keratin in the anagen phase is essential for eyelash growth and density. With advancing age, this process fails to run smoothly.11 To combat age-related decline in keratin synthesis, scientists developed a peptide called myristoyl pentapeptide-17. It has been shown in laboratory experiments to increase the expression of keratin genes by up to 160%, thereby boosting keratin production.17 This has translated into striking results in human clinical studies.

In a recent trial, 15 human volunteers ranging in age from 24 to 82 applied an eyeliner serum containing myristoyl pentapeptide-17 to the roots of their lashes. The researchers used computer-assisted image analysis software to assess eyelash characteristics. They observed a 25% increase in eyelash length and thickness in just 14 days!17

Even more impressive, another study revealed that participants applying an eyeliner serum with myristoyl pentapeptide-17 to the target area increased eyelash thickness and length by 72% after six weeks. Both studies reported no adverse side effects.17

Glycoproteins Support Hair Follicle Formation
Glycoproteins are large molecules composed of carbohydrate and protein. They form a vital part of the extracellular matrix that provides a proper environment for the development of new hair follicles. In fact, research indicates that glycoproteins act as powerful chemical messengers between the layers of the skin to jumpstart eyelash growth.18,19

Panthenol Exerts Powerful Moisturizing Effects
Panthenol has been a mainstay ingredient in hair products for the past two decades and for good reason. It is a derivative of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), a vital component of coenzyme A that assists in metabolic functions such as protein and lipid synthesis. Panthenol is converted into pantothenic acid in the hair shaft where it effectively binds water molecules, thereby improving eyelash moisture.20

Summary

Current treatments to improve aging eyelashes come with a steep price and substantial side effects, making them an unattractive option for many people. Fortunately, scientists have identified a network of complementary compounds, including a novel plant extract, myristoyl pentapeptide-17, glycoproteins, and panthenol, which protect and strengthen hair follicles to naturally deliver healthier, longer, and thicker eyelashes.

5 Methods For Stopping Hair Loss (and Possibly Even Growing Some Back)

Man in front of barbershop

If you’re balding, it’s a lot harder to grow all your hair back than it is to stop your follicles from disappearing in the first place. Slow the erosion of your hairline with these five dermatologist-approved strategies.

1. Meditation and Exercise

In balding men, periods of rapid shedding are often brought on by stress. The reason? Stress floods your body with the hormone cortisol, and then other hormone levels fluctuate in response, says Melissa Piliang, M.D., a hair-loss expert at Cleveland Clinic.

If you’re predisposed to balding, this can speed the process. To better control your stress, you might want to try traditional meditation or, if that’s not your thing, an active meditation regimen such as yoga or tai chi.

Or just commit to getting in better shape.

A 2015 study in PLOS One found that older men with a high level of cardio respiratory fitness release 42 percent less cortisol throughout the day than unfit men do. The stress hormone has been linked to all sorts of diseases.


2. Minoxidil

Minoxidil (Rogaine) probably won’t restore what’s lost, but it can help you hold on to what’s left and even help you regrow a bit. The topical med increases bloodflow as well as oxygen and nutrient delivery to the follicle.

Liquid Rogaine can cause irritation and leave a greasy coating on your hair, so opt for the 5 percent foam, says Dr. Piliang.

Rogaine costs only $29.99 a month (rogaine.com), but you’ll have to use it forever to retain any gains. [Note that solubilizers required to dissolve minoxidil are known irritants.]

Rub it into your scalp in the morning and again at night for the most benefit. Bonus: Unlike the oral medication finasteride (the other FDA-approved drug, sold as Propecia), minoxidil isn’t linked with erectile dysfunction or decreased libido.


3. Laser Devices

Besides minoxidil and finasteride, laser devices are the only other hair-loss treatment cleared by the FDA in recent years. The devices are sold as wands or Star Wars-worthy helmets for $200 to nearly $900.

In the largest study, published in 2014 in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, men who zapped their scalp three times a week saw a significant increase in hair density after 26 weeks.

One theory is that lasers have an antioxidant effect on hair follicles. But before you rush out to buy a six-pack of combs, understand that “hair growth” doesn’t necessarily mean “hair other people can see.”

You will likely feel it, though, which may have a placebo effect on your confidence.

4. Ketoconazole Shampoo

Swap your standard shampoo for a brand with 1 percent ketoconazole, such as Nizoral ($13 for 7 ounces, drugstore.com). Or ask your doctor to prescribe the 2 percent version.

“It’s marketed as an antidandruff ingredient, but there’s solid research ketoconazole is an anti-androgen,” says Dr. Piliang.

Anti-androgens block the conversion of testosterone to D•HT, the signaling molecule that shrinks hair follicles.

That’s how finasteride works too, but because ketoconazole is confined to the scalp, it doesn’t have the risk of negative sexual side effects, she says.

Massage the shampoo into your scalp, step out of the shower stream, wait 2 to 3 minutes, and rinse.

5. Vitamin D

A British Journal of Dermatology study reported that people with alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss, were three times as likely to be D deficient as those with healthy hair. “Vitamin D helps hair reset its growth phase,” explains Dr. Piliang.

To jumpstart your follicles, she recommends taking 2,000 IU a day of vitamin D3, especially in winter when you’re exposed to less sunlight.

But don’t try baking your bald spot in the sun to ramp up your vitamin D production. That might result in an even bigger problem.

“Men should be careful about sun exposure on a balding scalp, since it’s a common location for skin cancers,” Dr. Piliang warns.

All about CRESSATINE® in RevivScalp™ and how it can help encourage hair growth


CRESSATINE is a primary component of our RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque. CRESSATINE is a novel aqueous extract of watercress (Nasturtium officinale) and Indian cress (Tropaeolum majus) leaves and shoots, stabilized with plant glycerin, and is ECOCERT qualified.

Excerpts from its specification documentation, prepared by its manufacturer, France-based Solabia:

Titrated with sulfur, CRESSATINE is designed to facilitate hair growth and strengthen hairs from the root: 

- by providing the elements (sulfur and other minerals) needed to produce keratin for solid, well-structured hair.
- by helping initiate hair regrowth via the Wnt pathway.
- by stimulating keratinocyte differentiation via the KGFs (keratinocyte growth factors) released when the Wnt/β-catenin pathway is activated.
- by prolonging the growth phase using the Wnt pathway and KGFs.

ACTIVATION OF WNT/ ß-CATENIN SIGNALING PATHWAY

CRESSATINE was shown to boost the activation of WNT / ß-CATENIN signaling pathway by 37% vs. control:



CRESSATINE chart boost of Wnt / β-catenin pathway, regeneration and growth of hair



STIMULATION OF KGF PRODUCTION

CRESSATINE® significantly stimulates KGF production, by 107% vs. control, and in a dose-dependent manner, which in turn stimulates the keratinocytes, causes a well- structured hair to be produced, and lengthens the anagen phase:

RevivSerums.com Launches First Swiss Hair Stimulating Redensyl Product in U.S.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Bill Henderson
Email: pressrelations@revivserums.com
Phone: (415) 763-7248

RevivSerums.com Launches First Swiss Hair Stimulating Redensyl Product in U.S.

SAN FRANCISCO, JULY 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – RevivSerums.com is the first North American company to bring a hair care product to market containing award-winning Redensyl® from Swiss-based Induchem®.

Designed for both men and women, this novel next-generation leave-in serum can help significantly boost hair density, thickness, fullness, natural color, strength, and overall health.

"We are delighted to be one of the first to bring Redensyl to market, and to augment our popular and effective hair stimulating serum with this unique active," said Astonishing Developments' Director of Lotions and Potions Vance Nesbitt and principal formulator. "In updating one of our most popular products, we make it even more potent and effective while still maintaining its current price point of $49 (a $100 value). And with the addition of new polymers, it is even better for daily use since it instantly strengthens and thickens existing hair without making the hair stiff, oily, or smelly."

Induchem, creator of Redensyl, is a leading Swiss producer of specialty cosmetic actives for the personal care and cosmetic industry, with a worldwide presence including U.S.-based Induchem USA, Inc. in New York City. 

"As we further build our premier global brand in clinically proven personal care ingredients, we are excited about the continued growth potential in the U.S. market for us and for RevivSerums,” said Induchem U.S.A.'s General Manager Parand Salmassinia. "We're looking forward to a very productive working relationship that will benefit customers across the nation.”

Award-Winning 

Redensyl won In-Cosmetics 2014 Silver Award for Best Ingredient at its annual global showcase for personal care ingredients in Hamburg this past spring (http://www.induchem.com/news-home/redensyl-silver-award-at-in-cosmetics-2014/). 

Induchem cites Redensyl to be "the first cosmetic alternative to hair transplantation surgery." The product combines two patented Induchem molecules - DHQG and EGCG2 - to reactivate hair growth by targeting hair follicle stems cells, reactivating the proliferation of ORSc stem cells, protecting them from apoptosis, maintaining their differentiation properties, and activating the metabolism of dermal papillary fibroblasts.

Induchem's clinical assessment on volunteers produced outstanding results for Redensyl. In less than three months, 85 percent of the volunteers had significant and visible hair growth, with +9 percent of new growing hair and -17 percent of falling hair, enabling up to +28,200 new hairs in 84 days.

Redensyl yields almost two times the score of the worldwide reference minoxidil, according to Induchem.

Effective Ingredients 

RevivSerums is now incorporating this innovative, award-winning product in a new formulation of its popular 5 star-reviewed RevivHair Stimulating Serum.

In addition to the incorporation of Redensyl, RevivSerums is updating its hair stimulating serum with several additional new breakthrough ingredients:

• PhytoCellTec™ Argan, from Swiss-based Mibelle AG Biochemistry, is the first cosmetic active with proven efficacy on dermal stem cells. Hair follicles represent a highly relevant and efficient penetration pathway and reservoir for topically applied substances. Dermal papilla, where the dermal stem cell pool is localized, can be reached over follicular penetration. Sox2 expression is enhanced and “stemness” of the dermal stem cells is improved which in turn induces the repair of hair follicles.

• Cellulosomes® Crithmum Maritimum ST from Seppic® is an exclusive Sea Fennel stem cell culture that helps promote better epidermal metabolism, increases cell renewal, and the synthesis of collagen, proteoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans.

In addition to these breakthrough new ingredients, RevivHair Stimulating Serum contains its armament of remarkably effective, novel actives:

• Human Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF, rh-Polypeptide-3); PhytoCellTec™ Malus stem cells; Prezatide Copper Acetate; Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17; Copper Tripeptide-1; Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3; Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1; Palmitoyl Tripeptide among other superb actives.

The revised formula is now fragrance-free, and its base is a light, almost clear, formulation safe for all hair colors and hair types.

In addition to these innovative new ingredients, Reviv Serums is now providing PDPO (Pyrrolidinyl Diaminopyrimidine Oxide -- trade name Triaminodil™) in a separate optional vial for customers who want the growth-regulating effects similar to its chemical cousin minoxidil, which is a Pyrimidinediamine Piperidinyl Oxide. The vial ingredient is optional for those users who don't mind potential initial increased shedding since this ingredient can help promote the transition from the telogen (resting) phase to the anagen (growing) phase of the hair cycle. The vial is a customer add-on, and is only $5.

Revivair Stimulating Serum is meant to be used once or twice daily in addition to regular styling products or products such as minoxidil, and is applied directly to the scalp. 

Note: The serum is considered a cosmetic, not a drug, and the product is not intended for use in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease and/or is not intended to affect the structure or any function of the human body.
