The Science Behind Beauty: Mascara

Mascara. My savior before going out on Saturdays and runny nemesis after breakups. For years, girls and women alike have been using mascara to darken and thicken their eyelashes. Even since the days of the Egyptians, mascara has been a god-send.

But what is mascara?

What is this?!?!

The most common type of mascara is made mostly of waxes (fatty substances), fine droplets of oils, and water.

The purpose of the wax is to perform the actual thickening of the eyelashes and give the mascara the consistency that’s needed for it to be useful. On a side note, some mascaras use bees wax as their wax, so save the bees! The oils are used so that the mascara can spread across your eyelashes evenly. The water is then used during the creation process to help mix the waxes and oils together.

An example of the beeswax used in mascara.

Now that the wax, oil, water mixture has been used to create the initial mascara product, we can add the fun part: pigments! These pigments are what give the mascara is distinct color.

Some raw pigment shown above.

For common black mascara, the recipe has not changed much in the past few thousand years. Yes, as we mentioned before, even the Egyptians loved mascara as much as we do. For these mascaras, carbon black pigment, frequently created by the burning organic materials, is used. This carbon black pigment was approved by the FDA in 2004 and allows for the blackest of mascaras.

For brown mascaras, a variety of iron oxides are used to give the product its final color.

However, all brands and mascara products have their own variations and differences in adding these pigments. Not all mascaras are created equal.

As you can see, the product which we all love isn’t that complicated after all. Just a few main ingredients and then the pigment. Its so straightforward, you can even do it at home! The method described in the video below is all natural too!
