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.
