Eyelash Extensions: Cyanoacrylate Poisoning

All jobs in the world have a risk that we have to be aware of. Eyelash extension is such excellent work to do. However, we also have to protect ourselves from possible sickness. Believe it or not, the eyelash extension glue you use every day could be putting your health at immediate risk.

Many eyelash extension techs complained about their itchy eyes and irritated eyes. Some said they have watery eyes, and some are redness around the eyes. I am sure you have seen them too!

It is an exciting topic that I wanted to discuss because it has been a very common problem we lash techs can experience in our careers.

Let's talk about Cyanoacrylate Poisoning: I am sharing with all of you some of the symptoms a lot of lash techs have been experiencing when using a lash glue:

  • Runny Nose
  • Dry or itchy eyes
  • Headache
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Other flu-like symptoms

    Cyanoacrylate poisoning or chronic exposure to Formaldehyde

     

    Since lash artistry is still in its diaper stages, we don’t yet know the exact risks of all the hazardous materials we are exposed to especially when using lash glue.

    Cyanoacrylate itself is not necessarily dangerous, however, in the process of our glue drying, it releases a gas called formaldehyde.

    Formaldehyde can be very dangerous for lash artists because we are exposed to the fumes all day.

     

    So what do I suggest you guys do in order to prevent these symptoms when working on eyelash extension glue and decrease your risk of other long term problems is I personally do these simple steps that you might be interested to follow:

    1. I always wear our ThousandLashes’ Anti Fume Mask above the mouth.

    If you are looking for Anti Fume Reusable Face Mask, we have it here at ThousandLashes!

      2. Wash your face and hands between clients.

       

      3. Get good ventilation.

       

      4. To cure your lash glue drops with water every 30 minutes (don't leave your lash glue drops active; they release fumes once you are done with a glue drop. CURE IT !) 

       

      5. Air out your studio between clients.

       

      6. Purchase an air purifier.

       

      7. Change your clothes at the end of your work.

       

      It's easy to do something that you are passionate about. But at the end of the day, always remember that HEALTH is WEALTH! Take good care of ourselves to continue giving good lash service to our dear client.

      CONCLUSION 

      Inhalation of this chemical can irritate the nose and throat. Ingestion may affect the gastrointestinal system, including abdominal pain and vomiting.

      Cyanoacrylate skin exposure may result in a delayed skin reaction of redness, swelling, itching, and burning pain. Eye contact may result in irritation, watering, and temporary blurred vision.
