According to Elise Brisco, OD, CCH, integrative optometrist and clinical homeopath, magnetic lashes are safe to use around the eyes. She explains that magnetic eyelashes are better than using traditional false eye lashes because you don't need to apply glue close to the eye area.
Additionally, if you already wear liquid or gel eyeliner you are already exposed to all of the ingredients that are used to make magnetic eyeliner. The key ingredient in magnetic eyeliner is black iron oxide, which is found in almost all liquid and gel eyeliners. Magnetic eyeliner works with magnetic lashes because there is a more concentrated amount of iron oxide.
