Safe Swap: False Lash Glue

Thanks to years of dance competitions, I became a pro at applying falsies when I was really young!

It makes me cringe now thinking of the countless time I have subjected my skin to the ingredients in conventional lash glue..

As I browsed around looking at dozens of ingredient lists… every single one contained harmful substances including but not limited to:
โŒ Retinol โž” An EWG rated โ€œ9โ€ on toxicity scale in addition to animal studies showing that it peeds up the photo-carcinogenic effects of the sun and the development of skin tumors and lesions.
โŒ Benzaklonium Chloride โž” Well recognized as an irritant, with evidence that it may cause a contact allergy at concentrations as low as 0.1%. It decreased fertility in both sexes of mice when benzalkonium chloride was used to clean their cages.
โŒ Phenoxyethanol โž” A member of the glycol ether family and is the product of the reaction of highly corrosive phenol with carcinogenic ethylene oxide. As a result, it may contain residue amounts of both. The American Society of Contact Dermatitis lists phenoxyethanol as one of its core allergens, even in concentrations as low as 1%.
โŒ Propylene glycol โž” It is a controversial ingredient associated with skin irritation. Numerous patch tests on humans have shown that it has a very low risk of causing a skin reaction even at concentrations as high as 20%.

โŒ Fragrance โž” A chemical mixture of over 3k components used to create or mask a specific scent. The FDA does not require the disclosure of individual ingredients used to create fragrances. Many ingredients of fragrances are associated with contact allergy and may contain diethyl phthalate.
โŒ Formaldehyde โž” Can be released by a number of cosmetic preservatives, including diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, quaternium-15, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, and sodium hydroxylmethylglycinate. The International Agency for Research on Carcinogens has classified formaldehyde as ‘carcinogenic to humans.’ The American Society of Contact Dermatitis lists it as one of the core allergens, even in concentrations as low as 1%. Longer storage times and higher temperatures increase the amount of formaldehyde released from the formaldehyde-releasers.
