From the article:
The company’s product, called LashFood, looks like regular eyeliner, but it contains some ingredients that you might expect to find in a nutritional supplement, including the vitamin biotin, the amino acid arginine, extract of irises (the flowers, not the eye parts) and a blend of 15 herbs. Biotin and arginine are widely marketed as vital nutrients for hair growth.

Basically, what I get from the review is that this LashFood is marketed as the alternative to the newly FDA approved Latisse (bimatoprost)… but it’s just more quackery. It doesn’t contain the proven drug that works for the eyelash growth. Now I have no personal experience or any basis to determine the value of this product, so please read that full review and draw your own conclusions.
There will always be someone marketing a “natural alternative” to the latest FDA approved prescription drugs. Do they work as claimed? I guess folks will have to spend some money to find out for themselves, because no matter how many online reviews people read (from reliable sources, even), many will still have that “What if…” thought in the back of their heads.
