The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requires all “false eyelashes, eyelash extensions, and their adhesives” to meet their safety requirements, much like other cosmetics. Although the FDA warns users to “check the ingredients” before using adhesives, how do magnets fit in? The FDA doesn’t say. However, one optometrist, Mila Loussifova, said she isn’t concerned about the use of magnets near one’s eyes. “I like there’s no glue in this,” she told KATU News, “if you have to use them once in a while.”
While this may not be the case for all magnetic lashes, One Two Cosmetics asserts that it “has performed extensive internal testing, and retained Princeton Consumer Research to independently study the effect of continued use of the magnetic lashes in healthy female subjects” and has thus been dubbed “safe for use.” However, those with preexisting eye conditions should abstain from using eye products, including One Two Lash magnetic lashes.
