Primer Strength Comparison


Acid Primers:

- Acid primers, have the ultimate strong bond and should not be used under gel polish or applied directly to the nail tip unless directed by the manufacturer.

- Acid primers are typically used for enhancing adhesion with traditional acrylic and hard gel systems.


UV Primers:

- UV primers offer a superior bond due to their photochemical reaction and association with UV curing gels.

- They provide maximum strength and longevity to gel nail enhancements.

- When properly applied, UV primers create a secure and durable bond that can withstand daily activities


Non-Acid Primers:

- Non-acid primers can provide a stable and durable bond for most nail enhancement applications.

- They offer sufficient strength and longevity to meet the needs of clients with regular nail care routines.

- Non-acid primers maintain adhesion without the use of harsh chemicals, making them suitable for a wider range of clients.

Rapporteer jou nadelige reaksie op spykerprodukte by die FDA

Terwyl die FDA aanbeveel dat verantwoordelike persone in die industrie ernstige nadelige gebeurtenisverslae vir skoonheidsmiddels indien deur die vorm 3500A te gebruik wat hieronder gekoppel is,   die gesonde, naels, samewerkende, dring daarop aan, enigiemand wat aan enige nadelige reaksie op spykerprodukte ly om hul eie vorm in te vul en dit self direk aan die FDA te stuur.


Die voltooide vorm saam met inligting om die verslag te ondersteun, soos skanderings van etikette en beelde van die ernstige nadelige gebeurtenis aan FDA per e-pos by: of per pos aan:  FDA CDER-possentrum, White Oak-kampus, gebou 22, G0207, 10903 New Hampshire Ave. Silver Spring, MD 20993


Die goeie nuus is dat die FDA 'n proses ontwikkel vir die indiening van elektroniese verpligte verslae oor nadelige gebeurtenisse vir skoonheidsmiddels.
