What is Blephadex?
Blephadex is a brand of eyelid wipes which contain the natural, soothing ingredients of tea tree and coconut oil. These eyelid wipes have been specifically designed for the treatment of Blepharitis and Dry Eyes.
Tea tree oil is extracted from the leaves of the Australian native Tea Tree bush, Melaleuca Alternifolia. For generations, Australian Aborigines have used Tea Tree Oil as a natural antibacterial to treat infections and assist the body to heal. Blephadex wipes contain a safe concentration of tea tree oil suitable for applying to eyelids, providing a natural remedy to eliminate bacteria and keep your eyes clean and healthy.
Coconut oil is recognised as providing natural moisturizing and healing properties for the hair, skin and nails. For this reason it is a popular ingredient in shampoos, moisturizers and cleansers. Blephadex Eyelid Wipes include coconut oil in a safe concentration to provide a soothing moisturizing treatment to soften and calm the eyes and relieve the discomfort of dry eye. The refreshing smell and feel of the wipe leaves your dry eyes feeling clean and revived.
How Do I Use Blephadex Eyelid Wipes?
A box of Blephadex Eyelid Wipes contains 30 individually wrapped ready to use wipes. A single wipe can be used each day or every few days to gently clean away excessive oils and crusty build-up along the eyelid.
After showering or washing your face and with clean hands, just rip open the sealed Blephadex sachet and take out a moist fresh eyelid wipe. Clean one eye at a time. Holding the eyelid wipe in one hand gently wipe along the lower eyelid edge where the eyelashes grow, then wipe along the upper eyelid edge where the eyelashes grow, and finally close the eye and wipe along the area where the eyelids meet. Then flip the eyelid wipe over to use the opposite side for the other eye and repeat the same process. The Blephadex Wipe gently cleanses and soothes, removing excessive oils and crusty build-up along the eyelid margin.
The Blephadex Eyelid Wipes can be used every day to help relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome and Blepharitis.
Blephadex Eyelid Wipes come in individually sealed sachets, maintaining their moisture and are always hygienically fresh. They are also conveniently small and easy to pack while travelling.
Blephadex is also available in a cleansing foam which can be massaged into the eyelid margins with fingertips while washing your face or in the shower. See Blephadex Eyelid Foam Cleanser for further information.
How Do Blephadex Eyelid Wipes help my Dry Eyes?
Along the edge of the eyelids where the eyelashes sprout is a line of tiny glands called the Meibomian Glands. These glands secrete an oil which releases into the tear film and helps to reduce evaporation and maintain lubrication of the eye surface. If these glands are not functioning efficiently or become blocked the oil does not reach the eye surface and you feel the uncomfortable symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
Blepharitis is the term used to describe the condition when the Meibomian Glands have become inflamed and are not producing good quality or enough oils for healthy tears. As a result your eyelids and eyes become red and irritated and you may see dry crusty bits along the eyelashes.
Blephadex Eyelid Wipes enable a gentle massage of the lid margin, stimulating the tiny oil glands and allowing the natural oils to seep into the tears. The tea tree oil helps to kill bacteria build up in and around the glands while the coconut oil helps to soften and moisturize the glands rejuvenating and healing them for optimum efficiency. Your body starts to produce the necessary oils to keep a healthy tear film, reduce tear evaporation and lubricate the eyes surface.
