Cosmetics Facts: Eyebrows & Eyelashes

Cosmetics Facts: Yes or No?

  • Yes or No? It is fine to use hair dyes on your eyebrows and eyelashes. After all, they are hair, too!

Answer is NO: Never use hair dyes on the eyebrows and eyelashes. Doing this can cause blindness. There are approved, safe colors for mascara and eyebrow pencils, but no hair dyes are approved for tinting or dyeing the eyebrows or eyelashes.

  • Question: There is no hard evidence of linking cancer with cosmetics: True or false.

Answer: True: According to the American Cancer Society, based on available data, “there is little evidence to suggest that using cosmetics, or being exposed to the ingredients in cosmetics during normal use of these products, increases cancer risk“. However, certain products may have not been thoroughly tested, so more research is needed.
