Which differentiates eye products in terms of safety?
Quality test/ safety. We perform all the forms of testing required by established EU rules for products applied to eyes or surrounding areas. As a result, we have reduced the percentage of some ingredients or have completely eliminated others from the formulation. We go above and beyond the required testing by conducting ocular or dermatological irritation tests.
Which would be the consequences of using an untested product?
It really depends on the product. An aggressive product which has not been tested may cause reactions varying between mild irritation to severe damage to the cornea.
What safety process does THUYA laboratory follow?
Knowing the raw materials risk index we can foresee the potential of danger of the final product. In some cases, a dermatological and ocular in vitro irritation test may be enough for testing eye products. If a product is considered potentially dangerous, a test is performed with actual human subjects under the supervision of a dermatologist and an ophthalmologist, which allows us to states that the product is dermatological and ophthalmological tested. All THUYA Eyelash permanent and dye products have undergone this second test.
why is THUYA a worldwide leader in eye products?
Our position as a leader is due to our focus on R&D&I (research, development and innovation) in order to achieve up to date, efficient and safe products. This provides the beauty professional with a unique, high quality and profitable product. In addition, we not only conduct the required test, but go above and beyond by conducting extensive testing in order to guarantee the highest security standards.
That Thuya has consolidated its global Leadership in eye product, what is next?
We will continue working on new techniques and products such as the Eyelash Extensions in 2009. Moreover, we will also keep on researching new formulas in order to develop more profitable and easier to apply products. In conclusion, our aim is to continue working on the development of the best products for the beauty professional.
