Ophthalmologist and Pharmacist-developed Eye Cleanse by Dr ChrissieTM Gains Recognition in the Health and Beauty Industry
Eyes are the window to the soul, but they are also the conduit of one of the most beloved senses: sight. As part of routine eye maintenance and self-care, eye cleanse can aid in safely removing makeup, eyeliner, dirt, debris, and bacteria, all while effectively targeting inflammatory conditions of the eyelid.
Each year more than 37-47% of people visiting an optometrist or ophthalmologist had some form of blepharitis, an inflammatory condition largely brought about by a bacterial infection, or parasitic infestation due to poor hygiene.
This quarter, Dr. Chrissie Cockinos (ophthalmologist) and Mrs. Christine Deist (pharmacist), highlight their practical approach to eye care, with the introduction of their innovative line of internationally approved Eye Cleanse™ products.
A Safer Product for the Health and Beauty Industry
The area around the eyes is a sensitive one, often irritated by various health and beauty products (such as makeup). Moreover, makeup removers cause a similar problem, often containing harsh chemical ingredients that may irritate the skin and lid margins contributing to blepharitis.
Dr. Chrissie Cockinos and Mrs. Christine Deist sought to create a cleanser that was not just safe to use around the eyes, but effective in removing makeup and beauty products, cleaning the area of dirt and contaminants, and targeting inflammatory conditions of the eyelids.
In 2011 the Eye Cleanse™ Product Line Was Established
As far back as 2006, Dr. Chrissie became aware of an increase in blepharitis and demodex mite cases, further backed by her first-hand accounting of patients at her Johannesburg, South Africa practice.
Further research revealed that the market lacked safe and effective options for cleansing the area around the eyes. Frustrated by the lack of products she could recommend to patients, Dr. Chrissie began working on a formula to combat blepharitis, bacteria, demodex mites, and other irritants.
By 2011, with the help of pharmacist co-founder, Christine Deist, this first-of-its-kind formulation had been developed. Upon its release, Eye Cleanse™ received much acclaim, with the South African health and beauty industry quickly adopting the product line as a leading solution for eye irritation and the removal of makeup.
Capitalizing on this trajectory, within a few short months Cockinos and Deist had branched out internationally, with its new corporate division opening up in Texas in 2019. There it has achieved similar success and continues to grow.
