Castor oil may not make eyelashes grow longer

Eyes are one of the most expressive features of the face and naturally thick, long eyelashes enhance their beauty. (Check out for wild false eyelashes here.) Most women are keen to know about the products, natural or otherwise; which can make their lashes grow longer.

The most popular advice offered by all and sundry is the application of castor oil. It is generally believed that an external application of castor oil.
* on sparse eyebrows makes them to grow thicker and
* on the eyelashes makes them to grow longer.

But does castor oil have this property? Is it safe to use castor oil near the eyes? I came across such a question posed to the Beauty Brains. Here is what they had to say:

“There is no scientific evidence to support these claims. So, until someone can do a controlled study that shows castor oil makes your eyelashes grow, color me skeptical. I’d prefer to see the scientific research on castor oil rather than take someone’s word for it.”

    Controlled studies or no....this has worked on me. I already had great eyelashes. Just wanted to see what this would do. They grew longer, fuller and curled more than before. A beautiful result.

  2. Actually, you are right anonymous. Many people swear that castor oil or even vaseline for that matter makes their eyelashes grow longer.
