About Ilast:
Ilast® is a scientifically-formulated line of lid care and ocular hygiene products designed to support the health of the eye and the tissue that surrounds it. Ilast is free from preservatives, thus eliminating many of the allergenic and cytotoxic properties that often cause irritation to the delicate skin around the eye. Ilast products are manufactured using a patented process known as Epifree® Technology.

This process uses low-temperature sterilization to maximize the effectiveness of active ingredients while simultaneously maintaining the microbiological integrity of the product.
