This physician-developed eyelash conditioner, created by Dr. Susan Lin, is one among a family of skin care products. But MD Lash Factor isn’t your middle child that sits in the corner and waiting to belong somewhere – it shines on its own, with its inviting promise of thicker, longer, and generally fuller eyelashes taking the spotlight.
Use MD Lash Factor for four weeks and see up to 40 percent increase in lash length, so goes its website copy. MD Lash Factor credits this to its roster of nourishing ingredients, including peptides that protect against UV damage and breakage, and its cytokine complex obtained from milk. While it openly admits that it doesn’t promote eyelash growth, MD Lash Factor intends to stay in the game as a once-a-day lash conditioner.
- Boasts of a doctor’s backing and expertise
- Contains prostaglandins
- Recalled in Australia due to its prostaglandin content
- Needs to beef up its testimonials and clinical study pages
You may be asking: prostaglandins? What’s all the fuzz about? The Australian recall of MD Lash Factor, perhaps the biggest blow to its reputation and product ego, revolves around prostaglandins, which affect a wide range of bodily functions (dilation/constriction of blood vessels, for instance). These hormone-like substances are prescription-based and are thus intended only under medical supervision. We are of the belief that if you have a tiny bit of safety concern, any level of effectiveness fades. There are also other competitive products out there that sell more reasonably, even addressing the subject of eyelash growth and loss that are both “neglected” in MD Lash Factor’s agenda.
