Le 26/6/2019

CTPA has created a “Guideline on Artificially Enhanced Nails and Minimising the Risk of Allergy”, which has been developed for salon professionals, consumers, manufacturers and others with involvement in artificially enhanced nails. The Guideline explains that dermatologists are seeing an increase in the rates of allergic reaction to acrylate monomers in Liquid and Powder (L&P) and UV cured gel nail systems, and contains advice on how to minimise the risk of developing such an allergy.

The Guideline contains advice for safe use of these products for both salon professionals and end users, highlighting the following key points:

  • Avoid skin contact
  • Apply to healthy nails only
  • Wear appropriate gloves
  • Do not reuse gloves
  • Remove gloves in a manner which avoids skin contact with the contaminated part of the gloves
  • Use the correctly-matched lamp and gel system
  • Use reputable products which comply with cosmetics legislation
