Our nails are made up mainly from keratin, which is a tough protein. The keratin strands in our nails are like rungs on a ladder, where it has cross links between the strands which help with the toughness of our nails.
However if our nail plates are repeatedly stressed, these cross links will weaken over time and eventually your nails will crack, peel, split etc.
So how do our nail plates get stressed? Apart from medical reasons, did you know that most damage done to our nails is not from nail polish, but from the removal? Acetone is essentially a paint stripper! It can dry out the nails, leading to brittleness, splitting, peeling and breakage. It can also dry out your cuticles.
Weak, flimsy nails are usually due to lack of protein (cross links) in the nail, whereas brittle nails are usually due to lack of moisture (acetone can be very dehydrating!).
So how can GelMoment help you have strong healthy nails?
Starting with the removal process, GelMoment’s Remover contain a less concentrated amount of acetone compared to traditional removers. You also don’t have to soak your nails (unlike with salon nails) so your nails and cuticles have less exposure to the acetone which means the keratin in your nails is less likely to weaken! There is also minimal buffing so your layers of your nails aren’t being buffed away!
Next, we need to look into nail and cuticle care. It may seem like a step to skip but it’s very important to use nail/cuticle oils if you want your nails in top condition! You wouldn’t skip out on your daily skincare routine, so why should your nails miss out too?
This is where our Moisturizing Nail Oil and Regenerating Cuticle Serum come in.

Studies of government and industry sources shows that many cosmetic ingredients may contain harmful impurities linked to cancer and other serious health impacts. Analysis of ingredients in 7,500 personal care products shows that because some of these ingredients are used so widely, the vast majority of products on the market have the potential to be contaminated with impurities.
Sources and prevalence of impurities. Unwanted impurities in cosmetic products can be manufacturing residuals, breakdown products from cosmetic ingredients, environmental contaminants in the case of plant-derived ingredients, or what are called “unreacted monomers,” the small building blocks of the large polymer ingredients common in cosmetics. Potential health harms associated with impurities can dwarf those linked to the product ingredients themselves, but are mitigated by the typically low levels of impurities in the products.
These impurities can be found in products used daily such as baby lotion, shampoo, sunscreen, liquid soap, baby wipes, hair coloring products, mascara, hair spray, hand sanitizer etc.
