After having their eyelash product seized by federal marshals in the US, Jan Marini now has European agencies to worry about. According to this story, the company is now under investigation by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK. Apparently, they are still selling some of the product in Europe despite their legal problems at home.
Like the FDA, the MHRA is concerned that the company is selling an unregulated, untested drug for cosmetic purposes.
This may be the final straw that scares Jan Marini out of the eyelash lengthening business forever. According to Jan Marini herself, “We believe it makes sense to suspend these products while we strategically review our options.”
This means that they will focus on skin care products like their Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser and likely let these eyelash lengthening products go the way of the dinosaur. But don’t worry. If there really is some effect by these bimatoprost containing eyelash lengthening products some big company will do the proper testing and relaunch a similar product in a few years. If this doesn’t happen, you can bet your Beauty Brain the testing didn’t show a sufficient effect.
