Q. Are your products 12 FREE / 14 FREE / 18 FREE / Hypoallergenic etc ?

A. We carry over 300 products in various formulations and have done so since 2015. Our products are known for their formulation that avoids skin sensitisation, with much positive feedback from clients that have intolerances. Gellifique® formula has a far less content of skin sensitising chemicals (CLP classification of skin sensitisers) than an industry leading brand*.

However, due to the rise in dermal allergies in the nail sector, we have made changes to our advertising policies and no longer advertise our products as "free from" "hypoallergenic" and similar. Some of our older product labels / branding may still carry these statements.  

It has been also brought to our attention that many allergy sufferers are not receiving medical diagnosis and therefore are unaware of what they are allergic to precisely which makes it very difficult to substantiate "hypoallergenic" claims as professional grade nail enhancement products contain many harsh chemicals.

Saying that, these professional grade products are perfectly safe to use when following manufacturer's application instructions and in a professional setting only. 

Q. I am worried about dermal allergies. How can I prevent allergies in my salon?

  • Please always follow our application advice.
  • Avoiding skin contact is more crucial than ever in the era of nail prep with tools and e-files. Ensure contact with skin is always avoided, this includes wiping the inhibition layer or a design before it is cured. 
  • Clients or yourself can also react to nail prep products such as cleansers , acetones and acid - free primers. These also contact hardship chemicals and should be applied avoiding skin contact.
  • Check your lamp regularly to ensure its in top working condition. Check out our blog post here on UV/LED lamps and curing. 
  • Tailor the service to your client's natural nails. We do not recommend using BIAB type products on thin, brittle and damaged nails. If you see any hint of pink on the natural nail it is time to change to hard gel. Read our blog post about BIAB pitfalls here. 

Q. I have a medically diagnosed intolerance to an acrylate used in the nail industry. Can I use your products?

Cosmetic formulations are very complex and it can be very difficult to determine if a product may be suitable for someone with existing intolerances. 

Please get in touch with us by email listing the chemicals which you are intolerant to as confirmed by your medical assessment /dermatology patch test and we will contact our chemistry lab to discuss your requirements. 

Q. What should I do if I have experienced a reaction to one of your products? 

A. If any irritation occurs discontinue product use immediately. Please download the Gellifique Allergy Incident Report Form and fill it out. The completed form can be emailed back to us at info@gellifique.com.
