Hema Free Gel Polishes

Create beautiful manicures with our HEMA-free nail gels

Have your clients been complaining about allergic reactions to gel polishes? Or have you noticed irritation around your fingernails and cuticles? It could be the HEMA in the nail products that’s causing these nasty reactions, and it might be time to try our popular sought-after range of HEMA-free products. We have everything from gel nail polish to primers, top coats and more to give your clients the results they’ve been looking for.

But what is HEMA, and why is it bad for you? HEMA, also known as a 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate or hydroxyethyl methacrylate, is used as an adhesive in gel polish. On the upside, the chemical gives nails a hard and shiny finish but can cause irritation and allergic reactions when it comes in contact with the skin. 

Our specially formulated HEMA-free nail products are gentle and safe for even the most sensitive of skin, allowing you to create long-lasting manicures with still the perfect finish. Need a cleanser that removes and washes layers of cured gel? Our HEMA-free nail cleanser removes even the most stubborn and tacky gel products. Or try our HEMA-free nail dehydrator that can be used to clean and dehydrate the nails’ surface. This dehydrator is perfect to use before primers and other nail enhancements.

Looking to strengthen your nails so they grow longer naturally? Our HEMA-free strengthener, which is also formaldehyde, toluene and DBP-free, is a perfect choice. You can use this as a curable base layer before applying gel polish, as it works as a protective layer between the nail's surface and the polish.

With our vast palette of HEMA-free nail gel products at your fingertips, you can unleash your creativity and work effortlessly without worrying about adverse reactions that harm your client's or technician’s health.

What are HEMA-free nail products?

HEMA is a chemical commonly used in the production of modern nail products. While it’s an effective ingredient, it can harm the nails and the surrounding skin. HEMA-free nail products are, therefore, a safer alternative, as they do not contain this damaging chemical and are much better for your nails and skin health.

Do all acrylic powders contain HEMA?

HEMA is an important component of many acrylic powders. Without HEMA, the powder would be too dry and crumbly to work with. However, not all acrylic powders contain HEMA. Still, it must be noted that HEMA-free products can create the same results without the toxins. 

What is a HEMA free-gel polish?

HEMA is a common ingredient in gel polish, as it helps to provide a high-gloss finish. However, this can also be drying and irritating to the skin, so opting for our HEMA-free gel polish is a great alternative to ensure you and your clients are safe and protected. Our HEMA-free nail gels create beautiful finishes and allow you to enjoy all the benefits of nail polish without the drawbacks.

Does regular nail polish have HEMA?

HEMA is often found in many types of nail polish. HEMA is a substance that helps to prevent the nails from drying out and breaking. It also helps to give the nails a glossy finish. You should be aware of some potential side effects before using nail polish with HEMA. 

Are HEMA-free products better?

Yes! HEMA-free nail products do not contain the chemical compound HEMA. While they may be more expensive than those that use HEMA, they offer a safer alternative for consumers concerned about the potential health risks of this chemical compound. It also sets your business apart, providing a huge point of difference your customers can trust.
