Sensitive adhesive isn’t meant for those with allergies. 𝑨𝒕 𝑻𝑳𝑨, 𝒘𝒆 𝒅𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒅 𝒊𝒕 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒂𝒏𝒚𝒐𝒏𝒆... we’ll explain why below.
If you have an allergic reaction to regular adhesive, you’ll have an allergic reaction to the sensitive adhesive as well. That’s because both still contain the same active ingredient, cyanoacrylate (CA). The allergic reaction may be less severe with the sensitive adhesive (initially) but will continue to get worse over time and after repeated exposure.
𝑰𝒇 𝒚𝒐𝒖’𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒍𝒚 𝒋𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒔𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒊𝒄 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒏... sensitive adhesive may cause less of an irritation. This is due to lower fumes from the lower concentration of CA within the product. But... less cyanoacrylate doesn’t come without a price. It has a shorter extension retention time. We’re talking 1-2 weeks, versus 6-8 weeks. That’s a huge difference!
With that being said...

If specific protocol is followed with the regular adhesive, we can alleviate those same sensitivities without switching over to a sensitive adhesive and adversely affecting extension retention.
How cool is that?!
