The science behind WunderBrow
WunderBrow innovation lies with Permafix technology that imparts the product with its semi-permanent trait. The Permafix discipline enables the color pigment and microfibers to be locked onto skin surface thus constructing eyebrows that are not sensitive to touch and smudge, with water resistant quality.
The Permafix technology of WunderBrow consists of a copolymer of
This polymer gives the gel a viscous consistency that is flexible enough to take a shape yet stable enough to hold color and fiber.
Another ingredient in WunderBrow is Isododecane that makes the gel move smoothly without resistance for better application. Yet another component of the gel is Tocopheryl acetate, a Vitamin E counterpart that acts as an anti-oxidant agent, conditioning the skin and keeps the skin surface from dehydration.
The third ingredient in WunderBrow is Trimethylsiloxysilicate, a highly cross-linked silica derivative that has the ability to hold the pigment and resist water.
Owing to WunderBrow up-to-date mode of action, you do not have to worry about colored streaks running down your face if you step out in rain or sweat during a run. Your clothes are saved from any color stains transferred by the gel and the product will not smear off in a case of accidental smudge.

It may take few strokes of practice and you are good to go. WunderBrow comes with a small brush-like applicator similar to a mascara brush that helps you master the strokes in just less than two minutes.
