What’s Going On?

The medical term for thinning eyebrows is superciliary madarosis, derived from “madaros,” the Greek word for “bald.” There can be many causes for this condition, including a hormonal imbalance, a nutritional deficiency, allergies, an autoimmune disorder, stress, or a response to medications or chemotherapy.

Aging or excessive tweezing or waxing may also result in the thinning of eyebrow hair. Thinning may appear on one eyebrow or both, in patches, or uniformly.

The Importance of Eyebrows

Eyebrows are one of the most important features of our face.  In addition to protecting our eyes, they create a frame for our face, make us more attractive, and play a vital role in nonverbal communication. Our eyebrows enhance the facial expressions we use to convey happiness, anger, surprise, fear, sadness, and other emotions.  Because eyebrows play an important cosmetic function, loss of eyebrow hair can be very distressing.

Did You Know?

Eyebrow hair differs from scalp hair in several ways:

  • For eyebrow hair, the growth cycle is very short, typically about 4 months. Scalp hair, on the other hand, has a growth cycle that takes 3-4 years to complete. The result is scalp hair that is much longer than eyebrow hair.
  • Eyebrow hair emerges from the follicle at a very acute angle, so that eyebrow hairs lay almost flat against the skin. By contrast, the angle between scalp hair and the skin can be 45 degrees or more.
  • Eyebrow hairs grow on a single strand, whereas several hairs arise from a single follicle on the scalp.

Noting that eyebrow hair differs from scalp hair in several respects, the EES research team discovered that eyebrow follicles responded positively to the properties of black cohosh, a natural botanical plant.

What is the Solution?

EES—Essential Eyebrow Solution® has been scientifically formulated through years of development and clinical testing to support thinning eyebrows. Infused with the natural botanical black cohosh, EES is a patented formula that nourishes, conditions, and revitalizes eyebrow hair resulting in the appearance of thicker, fuller eyebrows.

The Science behind Black Cohosh

Used for many purposes, black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) is a perennial herb native to North America. The chief element in the black cohosh root is a substance known as cimicifugin or macrotin.

Studies have shown that black cohosh contains several compounds that may contribute to its potency, including: cycloartane, triterpene glycosides (such as acetin and 26-deoxyactein), henylpropanoid esters, and phenolic compounds (such as caffeic acid derivatives). Extracts from black cohosh have often been used for scalp hair loss, but until EES—Essential Eyebrow Solution® was formulated, it had never been used to address thinning eyebrows. For this reason, EES was carefully tested in a preliminary, open-label, dose-ranging study.   The results of the study were reported in PRIME International Journal of Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing Medicine, a peer-reviewed publication. (For details, see PRIME Journal or www.prime-journal.com, May/June 2015 issue, pp. 24-30.)

Directions for Use:

EES is to be used twice daily (morning and evening) as follows: Cleanse and completely dry eyebrows before using EES. Dip a clean cotton swab into the bottle of EES solution and carefully apply the solution to the eyebrow. Use a fresh swab for each eyebrow to avoid contaminating the solution in the bottle. Makeup may be used 10-15 minutes after EES has been applied. Consistent application and continued use of EES as directed is essential for best results. Individual results may vary.
