what is formaldehyde and why is it imperative for me to know about it?
This is vital to know since a lot of adhesives used for eyelash extensions in the market contain formaldehyde. ALL Xtreme Lashes® adhesives are non-formaldehyde products. According to research, formaldehyde poses a significant danger to human health. In 2011, the US National Toxicology Program described formaldehyde as known to be a human carcinogen. At concentrations above 0.1 ppm in air, formaldehyde can irritate the eyes and mucous membranes resulting in watery eyes. Formaldehyde inhaled at this concentration may cause headaches, a burning sensation in the throat, and difficulty breathing, and can trigger or aggravate asthma symptoms. For your health and safety, please consider this information when choosing where to go to for application of your eyelash extensions. Safety is as simple as ABC...always be careful.
are these the same as individual or flare lashes offered at nail salons?
No, they are not the same. These soft faux mink eyelash extensions which lasts 4-6 weeks with proper care. Also, they do not damage your lashes. "Individuals" or "flares" lasts1-2 weeks. They are heavy lashes placed on your natural eyelashes causing them to damage and weaken...resulting in permanent loss of your lashes.
