HydroPeptide® Sales Soar while Latisse® is Lashed by the FDA

The Food and Drug Administration has warned Allergan Inc., the maker of Latisse®, that the web site for its eyelash thickener is misleading because it avoids or downplays risks associated with the product.

HydroPeptide® Lash Longer Fuller Lusher is quickly becoming America’s favorite new lash product due to its drug-free formulation and impressive results. On Sept. 10, the FDA sent a letter to Allergan Inc. informing the company that they have misbranded Latisse® and are in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The violation is that “the Latisse® site either doesn't mention potential side effects including bacterial eye infection, allergic reactions, excess hair growth outside the intended treatment area, and permanent changes in iris and eyelid pigmentation, or presents them in small text that is much less prominent than statements about the product's effectiveness.”

HydroPeptide® Lash’s popularity is increasing in part because companies like Allergan, Inc., Athena Cosmetics, Inc., and Jan Marini Skin Research, Inc. include drugs in their products or have included them in the past. In 2007, U.S. Marshals seized 12,682 applicator tubes of Jan Marini’s Age Intervention Eyelash. The FDA requested that the products be seized because the “use of Age Intervention Eyelash may cause other adverse effects in certain people due to the bimatoprost, including macular edema (swelling of the retina) and uveitis (inflammation in the eye), which may lead to decreased vision.”

HydroPeptide® Lash does not contain “glaucoma type meds” like Latisse®, Peter Thomas Roth Lashes To Die for, Lilash or MD Lash Factor. HydroPeptide Lash Longer Fuller Lusher is drug-free and is the first product without prostaglandin to pioneer the power of plant stem cell and growth factor technology to nourish and revive lashes and brows.

“We would never put drugs with harmful side effects in our products,” said Dr. Louise Peck, PhD and founder of HydroPeptide®. “That’s just not something we believe in at HydroPeptide®. We fully disclose our ingredients and I’m sure our customers appreciate it.”

HydroPeptide® Lash will NOURISH, STIMULATE, HYDRATE, and PROTECT skin addressing many aspects of the Simply Ageless Skin Key™. Dr. Peck’s philosophy is the Simply Ageless Skin Key™ which is a stress free guide to looking ageless. Anti-aging products must tackle each aspect to effectively counter-act aging. HydroPeptide® simplifies life by addressing as many elements as possible in as few steps as possible. Go to to learn more.

HydroPeptide® Lash Longer Fuller Lusher is currently available in prestige retail locations nationwide and at HydroPeptide® Lash is .17 ounces and retails for $130. Formulated for all skin types.

HydroPeptide Lash Review

Posted by Whitz World of Beauty:
I have noticed with HydroPeptide Lash, that my lash do seem a little fuller! Hooray!
Also, they are growing a little more evenly, instead of having sparse bursts of hair growing in all directions (like with LiLash).

HydroPeptide Serum Reviewed and Recommended

It is nearly a year ago since I first came across Azure Cosmeceuticals Hydropeptide Serum. I was excited to see a sophisticated concoction of peptides and epidermal growth factors and I was about to whip out my credit card when I looked further down the ingredients list and my purchase was put off by peptides, triethanolamine, silicones and phenoxyethanol. Then a few weeks ago, Azure sent me the Hydropeptide Serum ($130) and it seems to have been reformulated to appeal to my flexible friend (although there is still one silicone and the phenoxyethanol is a bit high up the list for my liking). I have been testing it ever since and have noticed a smoother, brighter complexion, diminishing fine lines and a more even skin tone.

Product Review – HydroPeptide Eye Cream

The ones I’ve found in the past always seem to be good at moisturizing, but they don’t do much else. So, when my friend recommended HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Dark Circle Concentrate, I thought it would be another cream with big promises but no results. Lucky for me, I was wrong.
I’ve been using the eye cream for six weeks now, and I’m really pleased with the results. My dark circles are definitely less noticeable. I can actually leave the house without concealer!

This line of products, which includes Night Rainew, Day Rainew and April Rain’s Midnight Rain Satin Sleep Shade, has been raved about by prominent skin care publications and health & beauty Web sites."

HydroPeptide Lip Plumper Perfects Your Pout

Posted by Copley:
“I have in my hands Hydropeptide Lip Plumper, a very different product from its predecessor. Instead of a spicy sting, this plumper treats my lips to a refreshingly mild tingle and strawberry taste. The texture is neither too sticky nor too wet, and the color is a natural pink without overdoing the shine factor. My lips appear noticeably fuller and smoother.”
