Keracyte-B: safer than Jan Marini or Revitalash?
Before giving you the lowdown on Keracyte-B, I should point out that the author of the comment, browneyedgirl81, pops up with variations of the same post (although sometimes under a different name) in forums on quite a few websites. Call me cynical, but I am wondering if browneyedgirl81 is working for Keracyte's marketing department.
Whatever. Keracyte-B does seem to be worth looking into and, from what I have been able to discover so far, the ingredients seem harmless enough and it might actually work. So what is Keracyte-B?
Keracyte-B is a hair growth product made by a company called DermaPlus Inc. Keracyte's secret sauce is based on the theory that hair follicles need a boost to elastin in order to grow. Elastin is a protein that surrounds skin and connective tissue - a kind of 'rubber band' that gives skin its elasticity. The idea behind Keracyte is to replenish elastin lost from the scalp.
To do this, Keracyte contains elastatropin, a synthetic version of human elastin. The manufacturer claims the amount of elastratropin in a tube of Keracyte is enough to start replenishing hair on the scalp within a month. Keracyte also uses some of the ingredients used as anti-wrinkle treatments in DermaPlus Inc"s skin treatment, Dermalastyl. The main one is matrixyl 3000, a synthetic pentapeptide that is supposed to stimulate collagen production.
OK, but can you use it on your eyelashes? So far, I don't see why not. The rest of the ingredient mix appears to be a benign bunch of skin conditioners. It might prove to be good for wrinkly eyelids too.
