About Dr. Mila

The beauty industry is poorly regulated; many of your favorite products most likely have ingredients that are harmful for your eyes. The chemicals in make up and makeup removers can cause inflammation, irritation and even permeant changes to the (meibomian) glands on your lids. The meibomian glands are essential in keeping your eyes lubricated.

As someone who also deals with dry eye symptoms, I have to be careful about what products I use around my eyes. I know I am not alone. In fact, there are 30 million people with dry eye disease and only half of them are diagnosed and about 1-2% are actually being treated. This is why I am passionate about treating dry eye disease. I personally know how dry eye symptoms can affect the quality of daily living and even be debilitating.  

I created HEKA Clean makeup remover because I wanted to have a product that was simple, with natural and nourishing ingredients. Most makeup removers have harsh chemicals that also strip away moisture from your skin, leaving your skin and eyes dry and irritated. HEKA Clean makeup remover gently removes makeup, without clogging up pores or glands and provides antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-histamine properties. 

As you know, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." By using HEKA Clean Makeup remover you are avoiding harsh chemicals in and around your eyes and preventing the risk factors for dry eye disease. Thank you for taking this step in caring and nourishing your eyes.   

Keep it HEKA Clean.
