Are False Eyelashes Safe?

False eyelashes are one of the important cosmetic tools. It can enhance the eye makeup effect and enhance the overall facial makeup effect. Many makeup people will choose to wear false eyelashes. Many friends have never used false eyelashes or have just used false eyelashes a few times. They don't know about false eyelashes, so they worry about the safety of false eyelashes. There is a question have been asked often: are false eyelashes safe?

As a manufacturer of false eyelashes. We will introduce this question from the aspects of materials and production technology to see if false eyelashes are safe or not.

1. False eyelash materials:

False eyelashes on the market can usually be divided into 2 categories and 5 subcategories:

The first category is animal fibers: it can be subdivided into mink hair and human hair
The second category is chemical fibers: which can be divided into PBT material, PET material, and high-temperature silk

The above five are the raw materials commonly used in the market to make false eyelashes.

Hand-tied false eyelashes often use high-temperature silk or human hair as their raw materials. Those two kinds of false eyelashes are not the kinds we often produce. So we won't introduce those two materials (human hair and high-temperature silk) too much.

Below we will focus on PBT, PET, and mink these three false eyelash materials.

  • PET material

The full name of PET is polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It has been widely used because of its high strength, good transparency, non-toxicity, anti-penetration, lightweight, and high production efficiency. For example:

It can be spun into polyester fiber, that is, polyester fiber
It can be made into film substrate, insulating film, product packaging, etc.
For audio recording, video recording, motion picture film, etc.
As plastic, it can be blown into various bottles, such as coke bottles and mineral water bottles
It can be used as electrical parts, bearings, gears, etc.

Its typical application scope is the Automotive industry (structural devices such as mirror boxes, electrical components such as headlamp mirrors, etc.), electrical components (motor housings, electrical couplings, relays, switches, microwave oven internals, etc.), industrial applications (pump housings, manual instruments, etc.).

It can be seen from the above wide range of use that there is no problem with this material itself. and there is no harm when making false eyelashes.

  • PBT material

The full name of PBT is Polybutylene terephthalate. It is similar to PET molecular chain structure, but most of its properties are the same. Except that the main chain of the molecule has changed from two methylene groups to four. Therefore, the molecules are more compliant and the processability is better. This sentence sums up the advantages of PBT.

Mainly used in household appliances (food processing blades, vacuum cleaner components, electric fans, hair dryer shells, coffee containers, etc.), electrical components (switches, motor shells, fuse boxes, computer keyboard keys, etc.), automobile industry (radiator windows, body panels, wheel covers, door and window components, etc.).

PBT is often used in the electrical engineering of houses, mainly for insulation. In addition, in the process of automobile manufacturing, it will also be used to make plug connectors. In daily household items, such as the handle of the shower, this material will also be used as material. PBT can be drawn into filaments and used to make toothbrushes or paint bristles for makeup.

The two chemical fiber materials above from their performance can be understood that PET and PBT are safe materials. The softness of PBT is better than that of PET. This is why the old false eyelashes made with PET are slowly withdrawing from the false eyelashes market, and some only exist in the low-end market. It is because PET is hard, which shows unreal after making false eyelashes. and the display effect is unnatural, so consumers feel bad when wearing them. While PBT is softer, lighter, and more natural. It has become the main raw material of the false eyelash market.

  • Animal hair: mink hair

Around 2015, ordinary mink hair and 3D mink hair false eyelashes quickly occupied the false eyelash market. and they were loved by consumers. Today, they are still welcomed and popular in the hearts of many beauty lovers.

Mink false lashes' raw material comes from animal hair. and the commonly used hairs are mink's and mink's close relatives.

In the process of animal hair processing, animal hair will undergo high-temperature processing. This step involves dyeing. and at high temperatures, the hairs will be dyed into different colors required by the different products. Therefore, this step will also have a certain sterilization effect.

No matter whether chemical fibers or animal hair raw materials, there is a high-temperature step in the production process. So sterilization has been carried out once in the raw material processing.

2. The production process of false eyelashes

The whole production process of false eyelashes can be divided into two parts. One is the processing of semi-finished products. The other is the processing of finished products.

The processing of semi-finished eyelashes is the embryonic form of false eyelashes. They are produced by workers using special molds for false eyelashes and materials. After semi-finished false lashes are completed. They will be transferred to the finished workshop of false lashes.

The second part of false eyelashes is the finished step. The production of finished false lashes includes many steps. They include false eyelash combining, false eyelashes curling, sticking false eyelashes on the tray, and false eyelash packaging.

Regarding the production process of false eyelashes, I think the customers who have come to China on business and visited the false eyelash factory all understand these steps and processes I said.

After these step-by-step productions, false eyelashes will become the final product that can be sold. Among these, the production steps will also involve high-temperature processing. So false eyelashes will be sterilized at high temperatures again.

Although the heating in the production process of material and false eyelashes is indirectly used. It is undeniable that these two processes do sterilize false eyelashes at high temperatures.

In addition, false eyelashes are products worn externally, not products taken orally. Therefore, I personally think that the high-temperature treatment of those two steps can satisfy the sterilization effect for most people to wear externally. And many factories and trading companies will carry out a test on false eyelashes in the sales process as well. For example, our company has done an SGS test of mink hair and its related MSDS report.

3. Conclusion: False Eyelashes safe is approved

Above we can see that wearing false eyelashes is safe. Through the above analysis of false eyelash production. I hope customers can have a clear understanding of false eyelashes. and you could buy or sell false eyelashes with confidence. Of course, nothing and anyone can guarantee 100%. But false eyelashes are a product that has existed in the market for so long and is worn by most customers. Its safety problem is self-evident.

Our company mainly produces false eyelashes. Product lines include mink false lashes, silk false lashes, faux mink false eyelashes, and so on.
