Weird Ingredients that Work

In honor of this fun (and interesting!) article featuring Plume, “30 Beauty Products with Weird but Effective Ingredients”, here are a few more of the strange ingredients that make up the Plume potion for lash magic.  

Coleus Forskohlii Root Oil  

Prevalent within Ayurvedic medicine, the Coleus Forskohlii herb was historically used to   treat heart and respiratory conditions. More recently, it has been used in natural skincare and beauty products and has even become a popular fat burning supplement. 

In Plume: Coleus works synergistically with the other botanicals (specifically castor oil) to extend the growth phase of the lash cycle, and shorten the falling out phase to regenerate new lashes quicker.

Cinchona Succirubra Bark Extract

Native to the tropical Andean forests of western South America, this powerful botanical is used in Herbal Medicine remedies around the world today to treat gastrointestinal disorders, fatigue, fevers, and malaria. 

In Plume: this botanical is used to support the longevity of hair, with its alkaloid “quinine”.

Organic Castor Oil 

Well researched for its hair growth properties, Castor Oil also has countless other uses, ranging from treating skin conditions and digestive issues, to reducing pain and boosting the immune system.

In Plume: castor oil is full of omega fatty acids & proteins crucial for hair and lash enhancement. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
