Talika Lipocils vs Talika Lipocils Expert

We get asked lots of questions about the difference between the Talika eyelash and eyebrow growth serums and so in this article we've tried to answer your queries.


What is Talika?

Talika is an innovative, french beauty company. In 1948, Danielle Roches, an ophthalmologic nurse in the Paris Hospitals, was treating burn victims from World War Two. As Paris experienced a shortage of medicines, Danielle formulated a plant-based balm to treat injured people with burns to the eyes and she observed an unexpected side effect: in addition to healing her patients' burns, her herbal cream stimulated the growth of their eyelashes and eyebrows in a spectacular way.

Danielle Roches had to share this wonderful discovery with other women. So in 1948, she marketed the first skin care product for eyelashes - an eyelash conditioning cream, which we now know as Talika Lipocils.

What is the difference between Talika Lipocils and Talika Liposourcils

As mentioned above, Talika is a french company and in french, 'cils' means 'eyelashes' and 'sourcils' means 'eyebrows'.

Therefore Talika Lipocils is for eyelashes and Talika Liposourcils is for eyebrows.

What is the difference between Talika Lipocils and Talika Lipocils Expert?

There is a standard Talika Lipocils eyelash growth serum and a Talika Lipocils Expert eyelash growth serum. Confusingly there is only a Talika Liposourcils Expert eyebrow densifying serum as the standard Talika Liposourcils eyebrow growth gel has been discontinued.

All products contain the same Talika Mythical Plant Complex (witch hazel, apple, nettle, horse chestnut, St. John's Wort) which stimulates the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows, but the Expert products also contain:

  • Coleus forskohlii which stimulates the synthesis of melanin in the eyelash and eyebrow to intensify its natural pigmentation.

  • Peptide Expert which has an anti-aging effect. It improves the quality of the eyebrow bulb to strengthen the anchoring of the eyebrow and slow down its sagging and it improves the quality of the ciliary bulb to strengthen the anchoring of the eyelash and slow down its fall.

  • Silk proteins which coat the eyebrow and instantly sheath and curl the eyelash.

So, in summary, the Talika Lipocils Expert and Liposourcils Expert contain a pigment enhancer which adds colour to your eyelashes or eyebrows.

The Expert products are also more likely to help reduce eyelash or eyebrow loss if you're currently going through chemotherapy.

The Expert products also have a foam tip which enables more precise application at the root of the lashes whereas the Talika Lipocils eyelash growth serum (non expert) just has a mascara type brush.

Can I use Talika eyebrow and eyelash growth serum during chemotherapy treatment?
