NATUCAIN are 100% natural origin, hormone-free Brow & Lash Serums (£59). Following on from the success of its Hair Growth Activator, the first patented 100% natural origin treatment for hair loss and thinning, the new serums contain Natucain’s patented, active ingredient, MKMS24, which is extracted from bamboo, lentil and thyme using stem cell technology. They are clinically proven to give 54% denser brows and 52% longer lashes after just 6-8 weeks when applying the serums twice a day. Both the Brow and Lash Serums not only strengthen and enhance existing hairs, but also encourage new hair growth.  Brow and Lash Serums often use hormones such as prostaglandin or hormone-based derivatives in their formulations to encourage new hair growth, risking side effects such as eye redness, itching, irritation, dark circles or swollen eyelids.  Natucain’s formulations are hormone-free.  Available now from victoriahealth and natucain.
