Micellar Water + Eyelashes



Micellar Water + Eyelashes


Lash Artists recommend that their clients clean their lashes on a regular basis. Why? Due to the increase in lash fibres, clients are more susceptible to the accumulation of dirt and oil which may result in infection and/or premature lash loss.

Lash cleansers, shampoos and detoxes can get pretty pricey so some clients will purchase micellar water. Micellar water can remove dirt and oil from natural and synthetic eyelash extensions.

However, most micellar water products do not contain ingredients that are formulated specifically for eyelashes. When you wash your hair, you use shampoo that’s made specifically for hair. When you wash your body you use body wash. When you brush your teeth you use toothpaste.

If you want to get the most out of your lash extensions I recommend purchasing a product that not only removes oil and dirt but provides added benefit for your lashes.

The ideal lash cleanser will remove protein and oil while moisturizing, nourishing and protecting your natural and synthetic lashes.

Micellar water is a cleansing water that contains a small concentration of a mild surfactant. Tap water, bottled water and other types of water are not commonly known to contain surfactants due to their toxic effect when consumed.

Long story short, micellar water has been proven safe for cosmetics but not for drinking (or food grade) use.

Surfactant means surface active agent.To be classified as a surfactant a molecule must have a hydrophilic (water loving) and hydrophobic (water hating) region. When micellar water is applied to lashes, the hydrophobic or lipophilic region clings to the dirt, oil and grease while the hydrophilic region clings to water. To make things simple, micellar water removes dirt and oil from eyelash extensions.
