"Sensitive" Eyelash Extension Adhesive Isn't Meant For Those With Allergies....

Truth Bomb

Sensitive adhesive isnโ€™t meant for those with allergies. ๐‘จ๐’• ๐‘ป๐‘ณ๐‘จ, ๐’˜๐’† ๐’…๐’๐’โ€™๐’• ๐’“๐’†๐’„๐’๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’†๐’๐’… ๐’Š๐’• ๐’‡๐’๐’“ ๐’‚๐’๐’š๐’๐’๐’†... weโ€™ll explain why below.

If you have an allergic reaction to regular adhesive, youโ€™ll have an allergic reaction to the sensitive adhesive as well. Thatโ€™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.

๐‘ฐ๐’‡ ๐’š๐’๐’–โ€™๐’“๐’† ๐’•๐’“๐’–๐’๐’š ๐’‹๐’–๐’”๐’• ๐’”๐’†๐’๐’”๐’Š๐’•๐’Š๐’—๐’† ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’๐’๐’• ๐’‚๐’๐’๐’†๐’“๐’ˆ๐’Š๐’„ ๐’•๐’‰๐’†๐’... 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 doesnโ€™t come without a price. It has a shorter extension retention time. Weโ€™re talking 1-2 weeks, versus 6-8 weeks. Thatโ€™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?!
