Scientifique Nail Hardener

Item #: 2246957 Size: 0.17 oz

The tip of the nail is the most fragile, most unprotected part and breaks easily. This is therefore the part of the nail to be strengthened.

By quickly hardening the nail, Mavala Scientifique allows splitting, soft, flaking or splitting nails to become healthy and strong. Its formula hardens the nail plate so that the nail can restore its normal growth. Instantly penetrates. Is neither a base nor a nail polish.

Remove polish or any oily film and clean nails thoroughly. Brush on to the free edge of the nails. Leave on for one minute to set. Apply twice a week at the most until your nails have become heatlhy and strong. Then two to three times per month if necessary. Precaution : Never apply under nail, on cuticles, or skin to avoid hardening of the epidermis. If any product runs on to the skin, wipe it off with damped cotton pad.
Water (Aqua), Formaldehyde, Alcohol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract, Fragrance (Parfum), Cocamide DEA, Sodium Chloride, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Triethanolamine, Benzoic Acid, Ammonium Hydroxide, Blue 1 (CI 42090), Limonene.

    My significant other uses this product to prevent nail breakage. When my Dad complained of the same problem we purchased this for his use. One use and he's happy with how much stronger her nails seem. So glad i bought it for him

          Very finite area to use this product on. Instructions warn against getting on anything other than whites of the nail. one buys this product most likely because they are unable to grow their nails and therefore have limited white

            Comments about Mavala Scientifique Nail Hardener:

            I started using Mavala 30+ years ago because my nails were very weak. After a couple of months my nails were hard. Use it as directed - on the tips (hang your fingers to dry) before every manicure. One bottle lasts for over 5 - 8 years. Best product for nails on the market. Swiss made for decades. Mavala has a whole line of products that are great but this is the gem. Original bottle and packaging. Worth every cent!

              Thank you for bringing Mavala back to the U.S. Please get the rest of the line, especially the nail polishes. Also, Scientifique comes in a pen form that is easier to apply - with this bottle applicator, you have to be extra careful to put it only on the nail tips. It's a great product anyway - weekly use really will banish cracked & chipped tips.

                Comments about Mavala Scientifique Nail Hardener:

                After 10+ years of solar/gel nails, I needed major help. After trying at least six other kinds of stregtheners/hardeners from cheap to expensive, this one has blown me away. I alternate this with Nailtiques #2plus because I like a clear polish on my nails and it really helps to keep my nails hard. You have to be really careful with Mavala since you dont paint the whole nail, just the end. Youtube has good video instructions so you can see how to apply. I dont find it smells bad and it soaks in quickly. Follow the instructions and you will have great results. Not to be used long term or your nails will break off.

                    Comments about Mavala Scientifique Nail Hardener:

                    Very good product. Don't be turned off the price and the small bottle. If used properly it will deliver results and will last you a long time. It was recommended by my sister who have been using it for over a year now and I have seen results on her. It has improved my nails as well and I've been using it for about 1-2 months. I use it in combination with Nailtiques Formula 2 twice a week and my nails feel and look very strong and healthy. The only con for this product is the foul smell which I only sense during application, it does not linger on after it's dry; if it bothers you too much I suggest using a face mask.
