The ELLEEBALM product is a white creamy consistency that dries transparent. When applying it to your rod or shield, our preferred method is to dispense a small amount and apply it with a brush to the rod/shield before beginning the wrap phase of the service. During the wrap phase, we recommend soaking your brush again in the product, getting more balm on your brush, and then wrapping up the lashes.
This flexible and malleable ELLEEBALM rapidly adheres the lashes to the rods and shields with ease, allowing for isolation and directional correction of lashes without pulling or tugging, thanks to the balms polymerizing properties.
Unlike many balms on the market that come in pots and are prone to air exposure and polymerization over time, we have chosen a squeeze tube design for the ELLEEBALM. Bigger is Better, and these tubes hold a brilliant 20ml of product, providing around 100 applications. However, remember that lash densities and resistance may require varying amounts of product to be used. This product size makes this an incredibly viable option price-wise for salons.
Now, let’s talk about barriers. Many balms on the market require salons to process lotions for longer than recommended when using a balm. This takes the security out of knowing the treatment times and initially saw salons blaming brands for their lotions not working as they should, when in fact, the changeover to using a balm during a service was the catalyst for these lackluster results and longer processing times were needed to penetrate the barrier. From our tests with the ELLEEBALM, we have not needed to adjust the processing times with either Elleebana or Elleeplex Profusion systems which is a tremendous win because we all know that time is money and so too is having to guess what processing times to use because you have changed your adhesive around. This will be an important element when communicating to other balm users who are increasing their processing times, they may now start to find they are over-processing with ElleeBALM, so our marketing team and educators will work hard to share this message.
The stronger hold of the ElleeBALM provides a higher percentage chance of lashes staying adhered during the treatment process than other balms on the market. The problem with many lami balms is that the lashes tend to detach from the shields/rods during the lotion processing steps because the balm is water soluble, and all lift lotions are oil in water emulsions meaning high water content. The ElleeBALM is really more of a hybrid between the lami balms and the traditional lash lift adhesives available, so it’s the perfect storm in one handy tube.
Lash-loving goodness. Packed with gorgeous ingredients, the ElleeBALM is formulated with lash health in mind. Packed full of plant-based or synthetic essential amino acids, so this product is vegan; you will find ingredients such as serine, arginine, threonine, proline, alanine, and others usually found in high-end skincare products, not often found in lash products due to the expense to include them. These beauties provide the ultimate lash hydration. Other nutrients such as:
- Glycerine and Pea protein – a hydration booster
- Jojoba oil – moisturizes the lashes and offers protection to the follicle
- Aloe extract – nourishes and encourages the lash length and thickness
- The glutamic acid in this formula is from wheat protein, making it vegan but unsuitable for celiac.
- Color and fragrance-free to reduce any further possibilities of sensitivities to the balm or to the salon's service.
- Vegan and cruelty-free
- Dermatologically tested
