The anatomy of eyelashes ..
Eyelashes have an anatomy similar to hairs. They are anchored to the eyelid by a root and possess small muscles located in the eyelids which blink and close the eyes before an external threat.
Each eyelid has three to five layers of eyelashes in the eyelid.
There are 2 different kinds of keratins in our tissues: soft and hard keratins. Hard keratin has very little flexibility owing to the presence of many disulfide crosslinks. This keratin type is mainly found in nail, hair cortex and hair cuticle. More particulary K31, K83 and K85 are expressed within the cuticle and the cortex of the hair and therefore of the eyelashes.
