A new controversy about eyelash enhancers
A new controversy about eyelash enhancers is blurring the line between cosmetics and drugs.
Authorities recently seized a mascara-like product for eyelash growth...because it contains the glaucoma drug, bimatoprost (Lumigan). Similar prostaglandins are in other eyelash enhancers.
It's not a surprise that companies want to take advantage of these drugs' ability to increase eyelash growth.
