Over 12,000 Tubes of Age Intervention Eyelash Product were seized by U.S. Marshalls this week. The eye product was promoted to increase eyelash growth. Jan Marini Skin Research, Inc. of San Jose, California sold and distributed the product. Although Age Intervention Eyelash product can be purchased without a prescription, it contained active ingredients that required FDA approval to market. The FDA recommends that consumers or doctors who may still have Age Intervention Eyelash discontinue using it and discard any remaining product. The active ingredients could increase the risk of optic nerve damage or decrease effectiveness of other medications. In addition, the product may cause swelling fo the retina, and inflammation of the eye, which may lead to decreased vision.
