Health is Bio Sculpture’s #1 priority and is embedded in everything we do; from the high quality, clinically tested products we sell, to the training and support we provide to all our technicians worldwide.
Bio Sculpture is proud that all its products are “5 Free” Non-Toxic, which means that they do not contain potentially hazardous ingredients Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, as well as Camphor and Formaldehyde Resin.
What are these chemicals, and why has Bio Sculpture avoided using them as ingredients?
Formaldehyde is a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing compound) that is commonly used as a nail hardening agent and in nail polish products. There is a lot of discussion surrounding acceptable limits of formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and there is still a big unknown as to the long terms effects of formaldehyde may have on people with significant or extended exposure to it. Bio Sculpture has decided that it is best to leave it out of our customers and technicians daily lives!
Toluene is used commonly used in gasoline, paints, cleaning agents, and yes, is also used in some nail cosmetics products. Toluene toxicity is known to impact the bodies’ central nervous system, with acute or chronic exposures leading to symptoms such as fatigue, sleepiness, headaches, nausea, and in the worst cases, CNS depression and death. That is why Bio Sculpture Gel and Polish products are completely Toluene-Free.
DBP, or dibutyl phthalate, is known to be added to some nail care products for flexibility. Animal studies have reported that DBP impacts foetal development in mammals. That’s why there is NO DBP in Bio Sculpture products!
Camphor is a product that, with high exposure, is known to be poisonous. Given nail technicians are working with nail care products all day, every day, we felt that this is one ingredient our Bio Sculpture technicians could do without!
Formaldehyde Resin, which is a derivative of formaldehyde, is a known allergen present in some nail care products. Bio Sculpture Gel’s are is known industry-wide for how gentle they are to both customer and nail technician, which is why Bio sculpture products do not contain known allergens such as formaldehyde resin.
Bio Sculpture is committed to continue to lead the way in healthy nail care, which is why all Bio Sculpture Gel and Polish products are free of formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and other nasty chemicals.
Remember to always purchase products from a reputable brand, and always ask questions about what ingredients your professional products contain.
