What is blepharitis?

Blepharitis is a condition that often leaves sufferers with skin debris around the eyelashes and eye lids that are red, sore and inflamed. It is caused by the skin around your eyelashes or the area around your essential oil-producing (meibomian) glands being inflamed, or both. Blepharitis is also the most common trigger for dry eye symptoms.

Gentle eyelid cleansing every day is key because the skin around your eyes is very delicate and at the same time inflamed. It is very important to avoid soap, perfumes and preservatives.

Daily eyelid cleaning, it's more important than you think.

Over 40% of adults will show signs of blepharitis(1).

Over 80% of people suffering with dry eye also require daily eye lid cleansing to help manage symptoms(2)
