What products (i.e. mascara or eyeliner) can I use in conjunction with lash extensions?

 

Glycols and Carbonates—Many mascaras, eyeliners  & makeup removers contain these products and will compromise the lash bond resulting in lashes lost.

 

Ingredients that dissolve lash bond are: Glycols and Carbonates

                               

These are classes of cosmetic ingredients that act as solvents in product formulas.

 

Examples found in mascara and make-up removers are:

                                             polyethylene glycols (PEG's)

                                             propylene glycols

                                             propylene carbonates

 

Note: Butylene glycol is not a solvent.  It is a type of wax found in mascaras and does not dissolve adhesives.

 

Novalash adhesives are extremely resistant to water and all oils. Products are constantly changing, unless you are sure, check ingredient labels carefully. These are some products that you may already have.
