What does Hema-Free mean? 

Hema, also known as hydroxyethyl methacrylate, is considered the number one allergen in nail and cosmetic products. More specifically, when Hema is included in gel polish, the hydroxyethyl methacrylate monomers polymerise the polish, giving it a hardened, shiny finish. 

Why has Hema been removed from Glitterbels gel polish?

By extending their product line to include Hema-Free gelpolish, Glitterbels have enabled nail technicians to perform nail services on client’s that may have previously shown signs of an allergy.

Why have Glitterbels changed the formula of their gel polish?

Glitterbels original gel polish formula hasn’t changed. The Hema-Free range of gel polish is a complementary extension of their existing line. This innovative addition will help improve the nail industry’s choice and quality of products.
