The CND™ Difference: Embracing a Hema-Free Approach for Healthier Nails

The CND™ Difference: Embracing a Hema-Free Approach for Healthier Nails
When it comes to nail care, consumers are increasingly conscious of the products they use and their potential impact on nail health. In this article, we will delve into the significance of CND™'s Hema-free approach and why it matters for the well-being of your nails.
What is HEMA in nail treatments? 
HEMA, short for hydroxyethyl methacrylate, is a reactive monomer and key ingredient found in many nail products, including some nail polishes, gels and acrylics. It is primarily used to help nail products adhere to the natural nail, ensuring longer-lasting manicures and enhancements.
Is HEMA bad for nails? 
Hema is known to be a common allergen. Prolonged and repeated exposure to Hema can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals, leading to symptoms such as redness, itching, swelling and even blisters around the nail area. This condition, known as allergic contact dermatitis, can be uncomfortable and may necessitate avoiding nail products containing Hema altogether.
Is CND HEMA-free?
Yes! We can confirm that CND Shellac, Vinylux and Plexigel are formulated without free monomeric HEMA. 

CND™'s Hema-Free Approach:

CND™ has taken a bold stance by formulating nail products without the inclusion of Hema. This approach offers a multitude of benefits for nail enthusiasts, including:

Hema-free products reduce the risk of allergic reactions, making them safer for individuals who are sensitive or prone to allergies. This approach promotes healthier, more comfortable nail experiences.

By eliminating Hema, CND's products are gentler on the natural nails. This results in fewer disruptions to the nail's natural structure and health, helping to maintain the integrity of the nails.
