ICONIQ Lashes™ contains stem cells from a grape of the purple colored Gamay variety. These grape stem cells contain special epigenetic factors and metabolites which protect human skin stem cells against harmful UV radiation (one of the most aging elements). By helping skin stem cells protect their main stem cell characteristics, this ingredient allows for superior protection of the eye lashes, ensuring long lasting effects and healthy cells.
ICONIQ Lashes™ uses a peptide called Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 to increase the proliferation of lashes by strengthening and stimulating the cellular foundations from which the lashes grow; much like watering and nourishing soil in order to grow a plant. Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 is a botanically derived peptide that influences the keratin genes which moderate the length and size of lashes. By acting on these genes, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 helps stimulates hair growth at the lash follicle.
Pantothenic acid, which is actually vitamin B5, has been used in cosmetic products for years because it is so good for your hair and skin. Vitamin B5, like all other B vitamins, helps your body to convert carbs into energy, and supports the production of protein-rich tissues such as collagen.
Vitamin B5 is an antioxidant that helps repair and build tissue. Vitamin B5 in ICONIQ Lashes™, help reduce inflammation and repair damage to the follicles, and healthy follicles encourage hair growth.
