The Lash Product – Mavala Double-Lash
Applied daily, Mavala Double-Lash plays its role in stimulating lash growth, conditioning and protecting them, thanks to its key ingredient: a natural extract rich in proteins and vitamins, as well as glycolic acid.
Efficacy has been successfully tested, both clinically and ophthalmologically.
- 81% of users reported significant lengthening effects after 56 days of daily use.
- 72% noted significant densifying effects after 28 and 56 days of daily use.
- 81% of volunteers stated the product helps slow the falling out of lashes.
How to use
Remove all make-up and brush on Double-Lash every night from root to tip. No need to specially remove in the morning, even before applying make-up.
How it works
The lifetime of a lash is around three months but it can vary, depending on physiology, age and lifestyle. There are three phases of the hair growth:
- Anagen: active phase of the lash growth; duration is 30 to 45 days.
- Catagen: transition phase: hair follicle decreases its volume; lasts two to three weeks.
- Telogen: falling of the lash and resting period of the follicle; lasts up to three weeks.
Mavala Double-Lash helps stimulate lash growth by shortening of the telogen phase and strengthening the anagen and catagen phases.
Available from pharmacies nationwide.
