Careprost contains bimatoprost ophthalmic solutions 0.03%, which is the active ingredient to grow longer, thicker eyelashes or eyebrows. Bimatoprost is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that helps make eyelashes grow longer and thicker. It was originally developed as a medication to treat glaucoma, but researchers found that eyelash growth was a side effect. Now lots of girls use bimatoprost based eye drops to grow eyelashes.
Bimatoprost based eye drops include careprost, latisse and lumigan. These medications are now mostly used to treat patients with not enough or inadequate eyelashes. Bimatoprost makes the eyelashes more noticeable by causing more eyelashes to grow and making them longer, thicker, and darker. Bimatoprost is similar to a natural chemical in the body (prostaglandin).
