What is Demodex?
Demodex mites are tiny parasites that live in the Meibomian glands of the eyelids and the sebaceous glands of the skin, meaning they are not only found on eyelashes but also other face areas. Demodex can cause uncomfortable symptoms including eye irritation, eyelid inflammation, itching and loss of eyelashes. Eyelid hygiene is crucial for management of Demodex-caused conditions such as blepharitis. Numerous scientific studies have reported the inefficacy of known methods such as the use of baby shampoo in the treatment of conditions related to Demodex. Tea tree oil has been proven to be one of the only known products to inhibit Demodex growth.

Recommended for Mild Dry Eye and Prevention
Dry eye syndrome is a common ocular surface disease in which the tear film is affected. Causes can be related to the environment (wind, sun, dust, living in high altitudes…), lifestyle (staring at screens for long periods of time, poor nutrition, eye surgery…) or physical condition (hormonal changes, aging, Sjögren’s Syndrome, thyroid eye conditions…).
There are two types of dry eye: aqueous deficient and evaporative. However, about one third of patients show a combination of both, which means the signs and symptoms often overlap.
Dry eye symptoms include watery eyes, pain and redness, blurred vision, stinging or burning of the eye, and sandy or gritty feeling.
