In the professional product line of yaLASHes, the Remover Cream yaLASHes Bubble Gum is presented.
As we mentioned earlier:
«Creamy remover is the most popular choice among eyelash extension professionals. It's economical, safe, and easy to use. Creamy remover is suitable for removing any type of eyelash extension, but it's not suitable for precise removal of individual lashes (for example, during touch-ups) as it's difficult to dose accurately. Thanks to its consistency, it doesn't spread and minimizes the risk of getting into the eyes. The typical exposure time ranges from 3 minutes (for 1:1 extensions) up to a maximum of 10 minutes (for mega volume). For example, complete removal of 1:1 - 2D lashes takes 8 minutes for us.»
Let's take a closer look at the ingredients of the remover and how to properly use it for eyelash removal.
What's in it?
Gamma Butyrolactone – solvent. It breaks down the polymer chains of cyanoacrylate, thus softening the adhesive and allowing the removal of eyelash extensions. When it comes into contact with the skin and mucous membranes, it has an irritating effect.
Montmorillonite – a natural clay mineral (blue clay), the main component of bentonite, with strong sorption properties. It acts as an adsorbent for residual glue and sebum, mitigating the allergic effects of released cyanoacrylate monomers. It prevents skin and mucous irritation (counteracting the impact of Gamma Butyrolactone on the skin).
Copolymer – auxiliary component, structural former, thickener, stabilizer.
Fragrance – gives a pleasant Bubble Gum scent to the product.
How to use?
- Apply the creamy remover evenly to the lash attachment area of the first eye using a microbrush or a special applicator.
- Repeat the same procedure for the lash attachment area of the second eye.
- Now you can start removing the lashes from the first eye. Gently grip the lashes between the applicator and a wooden spatula and try to remove them. If the lashes don't come off yet, wait a little and try again. If the lashes are fresh or the client has mega volume, you can use tweezers to carefully remove the remains of the artificial lashes without damaging the natural ones.The typical exposure time ranges from 3 minutes (for 1:1 extensions) up to a maximum of 10 minutes (for mega volume).
- Remove the remnants of the remover using dry cotton swabs first on the first eye, then on the second. It's crucial to completely remove the remover to prevent it from hardening and whitening upon contact with water.
- Clean the client's eyes with professional wet wipes.
- Instruct the client to wash her eyelashes with a professional eyelash shampoo.
Creamy remover should not be washed off with water. Residue of the product on the lashes can affect the quality of adhesion during new extensions and significantly reduce wear time. Therefore, we don't recommend skipping the remover removal steps described above.
