Scientifique Nail Hardener

(15) REVIEWS

0.17 oz Item 2246957

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.

      Comments about Mavala Scientifique Nail Hardener:

      While this stuff works it contains Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. Breathing the fumes, putting it on your nails improperly (more than just the tips) cannot be safe!

            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!
