HEMA and DiHEMA free

HEMA is the number 1 allergen product in nail products (and cosmetics). It is best to avoid products that contain HEMA. There is no good reason for any producer to use this ingredient, except to save cost.

CNC has great alternatives in HEMA free gels. Client safety is our priority; ALL products in our catalogue are HEMA free. The CNC gel polish formula is free of HEMA, free of Di-HEMA and 15-free*!

DiHEMA free

What is HEMA and DiHEMA?

HEMA is a monomer, a reactive ingredient, that is most commonly used to adhere the gel to the nail. It gives the gel polish that nice hard, shiny finish.

You will find it in many types of nail products such as glue, acrylic, gel polish and gels. HEMA is known as 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate or hydroxyethyl methacrylate; monomers used to polymerize UV gels. The molecular size of HEMA is very small and can be absorbed into the skin and nail plate. ALL products in the CNC product catalogue are HEMA free.

As DiHEMA has a larger molecular size it has less ability to penetrate the nail plate, the risk of allergy is far less. CNC gel polish formula is free of HEMA and Di-HEMA: more respectful to nails and surrounding skin.


What is the problem of HEMA in gel nail products?
The problem is that HEMA are “sensitizing”, reaction build up. Very small, very reactive and volatile, these molecules can penetrate the skin and cause severe skin reactions allergic and inflammatory. It appears that once an allergic reaction occurs, no HEMA can be endured.
