Dive Into The ForChics Formula

Growth serums for eyelashes or eyebrows are one of those products that seems so good to be true. Is it really possible to grow longer and thicker lashes and brows? As a matter of fact, we in the beauty industry would have you believe that because most cosmetic products undergo thorough research and science. So what’s the truth behind these growth serums that promise to grow those tiny hairs?

We don’t give empty promises and we don’t have secrets. That's why we’re here to dig deep on what’s behind our  ForLash™ Eyelash Enhancing Serum and  ForBrow™ Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. You’ve probably seen tons of before-and-after pictures of women and men flaunting their luscious lashes and full feathery brows and still need more proof of how these enhancing serums work. Let’s talk about science and actually find out! Don’t worry, Chic, we’ll make it short and sweet.

You might have seen some of these ingredients in growth serums that we too have in ours.

Key Ingredients: Panax Ginseng, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, Vitamin B7 (Biotin), Vitamin E

Let’s discuss shall we, Chics?

Panax Ginseng

 

Ginseng or also known as Asian, Chinese or Korean ginseng, is a species of plant whose root is the original source of ginseng. A  2018 study mentioned that there has been a lot of evidence suggesting that ginseng and its major compound, ginsenosides, promote hair growth by enhancing proliferation of the dermal papilla and preventing hair loss via modulation of various cell-signaling pathways.


Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract

has antimicrobial/antibacterial effects. Some studies, including  a study published in 2017, have found that rosemary oil may kill some fungi and bacteria. How does this help hair growth you ask? When hair loss is due to an infection or unhealthy scalp, rosemary extract can help.

 

Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract

This ingredient is revealed to contain lignans such as honokiol and magnolol, which have notable anti-inflammatory properties and benefits focused on TGF-B cell cycle arrest to decrease hair loss.


Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17

This specially designed peptide stimulates keratin genes that are required for healthy hair growth. It is a synthetic fatty acid with a five amino acid peptide. 


Biotin (Vitamin B7)

Biotin is widely known to help promote healthy hair, skin, and nails. It stimulates keratin production and increases the rate of follicle growth. While it is a fact there’s a little conclusive evidence that it reduces hair loss, it certainly makes your hair stronger and less prone to hair fall.

Vitamin E

Lastly, Vitamin E is an essential vitamin that supports hair health. It nourishes and protects your eyelashes and eyebrows from damage.


With any beauty product or treatments, it’s always best to check with your doctor to find out what’s ideal for you. They’ll help you find the best growth serum that will work for you.
