Xtreme Lashes® Is Dedicated To Your Safety

WE WANT THE BEST FOR OUR CLIENTS. DO YOU WANT THE BEST FOR YOURS?

With so many new companies, products and adhesives coming onto the market at a rapid rate it is a great concern to the Eyelash Extension Industry. Some of the adhesives used by generally cheaper traders are measuring as strong as super glue! This has to stop. The solution is simple. Please do your homework. Choose a reputable company and stylist. You get what you pay for.

Xtreme Lashes® is dedicated to safety; we sell the highest quality products only to Professionals in the Beauty and Health industries. As a registered nurse, the President of Xtreme Lashes®, LLC insists on nothing less!

We consider ourselves as the moral voice of the Eyelash Extension Industry and have prerequisites in place prior to training our students. We also put them through a strict certification process to earn their place on our web listing. This can take from 3-6 months + before we deem them safe and ready to apply lashes to paying clients or list them on our website. We also regulate their adhesive purchases so that the consumer is having the safest and freshest adhesive applied to their lashes. Our adhesive is medical grade and formulated by Paediatric Nurse and Founder Jo Mousselli, together with a team of doctors, scientists and technicians to develop the safest product on the market. If you have read about accredited courses available please consider the following link to learn more about the difference between certification and accreditation.

KEY FACTS TO KNOW ABOUT CYANOACRYLATE ADHESIVES AND FORMALDEHYDE

Formaldehyde is NOT an added ingredient in any Xtreme Lashes adhesives. Our adhesives are made using the same properties and ingredients found in medical grade adhesives. Medical grade adhesives are used by surgeons to close wounds without stitches, a practice called sutureless wound closure. Additionally, FlexFusion® Adhesive with Rapid Cure Technology™, our #1 selling medical grade cyanoacrylate adhesive, was created in a US based FDA registered facility that specializes in medical adhesives.

A completely “formaldehyde free” cyanoacrylate adhesive does not exist. Ultra low amounts of formaldehyde naturally occur as the adhesive degrades over time. The formaldehyde level in Xtreme Lashes FlexFusion® Adhesive with Rapid Cure Technology™ has not been measurable as it is below the lowest detectable level of lab tests (HPLC/UV) that measure formaldehyde.

UNDERSTANDING FORMALDEHYDE CONTENT

Formaldehyde fumes, in trace amounts, do not pose any health risks. Formaldehyde is found at much higher concentrations in numerous household products that we use every day. Examples of common household products that include more formaldehyde than Xtreme Lashes FlexFusion Adhesive include Gerber Baby Wash, Elmers School Glue, wooden furniture and flooring, carpets, clothing fabric, gas stoves, and drapery. Formaldehyde is even found naturally in the human body.


**The formaldehyde level in FlexFusion® Adhesive with Rapid Cure Technology™ has not been measurable as it is below the lowest detectable level of lab tests (HPLC/UV) that measure formaldehyde. Based on US information, laws and research.

A note about Training and Safety:
Xtreme Lashes® believes it is irresponsible to sell eyelash extension products without requiring training. Sending a DVD and a workbook are not sufficient. We are focused on safety and the long term health of your clients, your business and our industry. After all, improper application technique, which will likely result without proper training, can result in injury. Improper application technique IS a valid safety concern (not insignificant levels of formaldehyde in the adhesive).

Xtreme Lashes® has a dedicated Corporate Training Department that establishes and maintains quality control over its training curriculum. Our trainers go through extensive training with ongoing continuing education and evaluations to ensure that the latest techniques are shared and implemented into our curriculum. Comprehensive hands-on Training is essential for safe eyelash extension application!

The application process, which requires the use of a strong bonding and long lasting adhesive and sharp tweezers near the eye area, is very meticulous. Only under the supervision of a well trained Certified Trainer is a student able to learn how to properly position their hands, pick up the lash extension, isolate a single natural lash, and apply the lash extension safely and beautifully. In fact, a qualified trainer works with each individuals specific needs to help him or her overcome weaknesses and utilize strengths. Even proper posture and table height is assessed. Expecting a student to learn application of eyelash extensions utilizing a video or DVD is like expecting a student to learn how to cut hair or perform a surgical procedure from a video or DVD.

To help ensure safe, sanitary, and beautiful eyelash extension applications, Xtreme Lashes® REQUIRES our customers to qualify for our minimum requerments. Proper training is absolutely critical for safety as well as beauty. We believe it is irresponsible to sell an eyelash extension product without requiring professional hands on training. Watching a Video or DVD is simply not enough.

Xtreme Lashes® will only sell product to licensed professionals in the beauty or health industries (such as beauticians, cosmetologists, nurses, etc) or to persons with strong credentials in the beauty industry (or minimum entry level requirement via pre course). Again, we believe it is irresponsible to sell an eyelash extension product to persons that have no training or credentials in the beauty or health industries.

  HOW TO SELECT AN EYELASH EXTENSION COMPANY


Xtreme Lashes® recommends the following to licensed professionals who are concerned about safety and that are interested in becoming successful eyelash extension technicians:
    •    Select a company that REQUIRES comprehensive training – for you and your clients safety - as well as the long term health of the industry. Avoid companies that attempt to convince you that you can learn the technique of applying eyelash extensions safely and beautifully by watching a video or a DVD.
    •    Select a company that only sells products to professionals with licenses and strong credentials in the health or beauty industries.
    •    Avoid companies who utilize misleading information or scare tactics regarding formaldehyde content and FDA approval. These tactics harm our industry and discourage use of lash extensions altogether.
    •    Select a company that has an extensive inventory of eyelash extensions and accessories with a variety of shipping options including overnight and 2nd day delivery.
    •    Select a company that has a Corporate Training Department that requires their trainers to complete continuing education and sharing of best practices to always provide the best and latest techniques.
    •    Avoid companies that require you to purchase or schedule your training from an independent trainer. This situation indicates limited quality control, because each trainer is acting independently and her incentive is only to sell you a seat at her workshop.
    •    Select a company that has a corporate office with a corporate training department, a product development team, full time customer service, business support, and dedicated trouble shooting support.
Consumers should avoid companies that resort to using misleading scare tactics in order to sell products. These companies may be compensating for their deficiencies in product quality, training and customer service. These scare tactics are disingenuous and are a disservice to our industry.

Xtreme Lashes® is dedicated to providing the highest quality products, the most comprehensive hands on training, the best customer service and business support in the industry. We are proud to be the leader in this industry with the most extensive inventory of products, a dedicated training department and will continue to work diligently to further improve our products and service to our clients.
