The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and surrounds the fragile eye itself. Every eye area product needs to be tested and approved specifically by an ophthalmologist prior to usage for safety. Every Rodan + Fields eye product receives extensive testing to this end.
Other products, though safe and effective to be used where intended, are usually not tested to be used near the eye. At Rodan + Fields, safety and efficacy as well as customer satisfaction are our priorities when it comes to our products.
