International – CTPA : “Guideline on Artificially Enhanced Nails and Minimising the Risk of Allergy”

CTPA has created a “Guideline on Artificially Enhanced Nails and Minimising the Risk of Allergy”, which has been developed for salon professionals, consumers, manufacturers and others with involvement in artificially enhanced nails.  The Guideline explains that dermatologists are seeing an increase in the rates of allergic reaction to acrylate monomers in Liquid and Powder (L&P) and UV cured gel nail systems, and contains advice on how to minimise the risk of developing such an allergy.
