Peptide-infused base coat instantly strengthens soft, thin, weak and brittle nails.

Unlock your nails potential to reverse the visible signs of aging. Grow your own natural nails longer, stronger, and healthier with Dermelect Launchpad Peptide Infused Nail Strengthener Base Coat . Discover this true, anti-aging nail treatment that is the first to utilize protein-peptide technology to hydrate and strengthen nails. Similar to multi-peptide technology for the treatment of aging skin, the breakthrough keratin peptide ingredient provides a unique delivery system of protein peptides directly to the nail bed to encourage stubborn nails to grow while improving their strength. The unique multi-peptide, derived from New Zealand wool, delivers keratin protein to the nails increasing the integrity and cohesion to the nail plate resulting in natural flexibility and increased moisture. Furthermore its antioxidant behavior allows it to actively remove harmful free radicals most commonly associated with nail damage. The fast- drying formula provides a soft shine for natural nails and a protecting base coat under polish.

  • Keratin Protein Peptide: Strengthening

The Science Behind The Innovation:

New Zealand wool protein biotechnology is the breakthrough ingredient in a new generation of nail and hand care products launched by Dermelect Cosmeceuticals. Keratin, the main protein in fingernails and skin, diminishes as we age and expose our nails to everyday wear and tear. The peptide ingredient is extracted from wool in a gentle yet powerful process keeping the protein intact maintaining its potency without damaging the amino acids that make it up. The integrity of the extracted peptide (keratin protein) is in a near-perfect state yielding unprecedented age-defying, strengthening and softening properties for the nails and hands.

Additonal Benefits:

  • DBP, formaldehyde & toluene free
  • Cruelty Free - No animal testing, ever
  • Hydroquinone free
  • Paraben free

 

Apply 1-2 coats on natural nails as a treatment or under polish as a base coat.

Precautions: Keep away from heat or flame. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.

I WILL KEEP USING

By Ruby C

from Detroit

Comments about Dermelect Launchpad Peptide Infused Nail Strengthener Base Coat:

I tried a lot of hardeners, but they barely did a good job. This product is a great base coat and hardener. Use 1 coat as a base coat and your polish will last longer. My natural nails have never been this long without overlays or acrylics. I type constantly and my nails are strong. My complaints are the blue tint and it seems like the bottle runs out quickly.

      After having gel polish on my nails were very soft and not very healthy looking so I used this and they are back to healthy and hard again.

          This product keeps my nails strong and healthy! I like to grow my nails out long and I work a lot with my hands, so using this as a strengthener prevents my natural nails from cracking or chipping. It also works great as a base coat for nail polish. I apply 1-2 coats every few days or as needed.

            This would be a good product for severely damaged nails IF it weren't green in color.

                    Comments about Dermelect Launchpad Peptide Infused Nail Strengthener Base Coat:

                    I literally tried every single product in the stores for weak, peeling, problem nails with no results. I was so tired of not being able to grow my nails and frustrated with them peeling with the slightest pressure while trying to open cans or lifting labels etc. During a visit at Ulta, I saw this product and read the descriptions on it. It was pricey but I wanted to try as the last resort. I applied this product, without removing it, three consecutive days and voila! It even restored some nails which were peeled before. My best friend said she has never seen my nails this long, ever! I am extremely pleased and grateful. I do not like the blueish, greenish tint it gives but this is such a minor thing compared to the benefits of using the product.
