More Than Meets the Eye- Beauty Products for Ocular Health

The skin around the eyes is some of the most sensitive and thin on the body. This means that products applied around the eyes are more easily absorbed into the skin, increasing the potential for irritation from ingredients harmful to the eyes. It is therefore important to choose cosmetics with eye-safe ingredients, especially for those with sensitive skin or eyes. Although Canada has regulations in place for cosmetics with heavy metals, many makeup products are still made with harsh irritants. Eye infections are commonly caused by the bacteria, chemicals and irritating ingredients found in makeup. Twenty/Twenty Beauty offers a solution through a collection of cosmetics created to prioritize eye health while enhancing beauty.

Tips for Eye Makeup Safety
  • Avoid loose glitter eyeshadow and powders that can fall into the eyes
  • Do not apply makeup to the waterline or lash line of eyes to prevent blocking oil glands
  • Check makeup expiration dates and replace products accordingly
  • Never share makeup products and avoid “testers” at retail stores
  • If a cosmetic product causes irritation or infection, stop using it immediately and discard the product
