OAKLAND, California— Founded by Tanya Gill, OD, We Love Eyes, a green beauty company, has introduced eye cleansing products made with tea tree oil that are natural, non-toxic, vegan and cruelty free.

According to Dr. Gill’s research, most cleansing products on the market contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), along with other chemicals that are potentially damaging to sensitive eye areas. In addition to irritating the skin, SLS is linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity and endocrine disruption.

To remedy the issue, We Love Eyes offers products that cleanse, soothe and protect the eyes with a blend of thoughtfully-sourced ingredients. Plants used include wild-harvested Australian tea tree oil with antimicrobial and anti-dandruff properties, organic family-farmed jojoba for moisturizing and cleansing, and grape seed oil from Napa Valley with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents. Made with safety and authenticity, these products are allergy, dermatologist and optometrist tested with no added dyes, coloring or fragrances.

Available products include the Tea Tree Eye Makeup Remover Oil to help women wash away waterproof and stubborn makeup, the Tea Tree Eye Cleansing Oil with a higher concentration of tea tree oil for daily cleansing of the eyelid and eye area for men, and the Tea Tree Eyelid Foaming Cleanser for those who prefer a foam cleanser that reaches deeper into the lash line.
