The Science Behind the Technology:
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 ProSina 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. This high molecular weight protein fraction is also used for a myriad of non-cosmetic applications, including bone grafts, fixation devices, wound dressings, adhesives, and fibers.

Save your money


I have had much better results with Sally Hanson, or several other clear nail topcoats. This one peels off and I cannot see where it did a thing for my nails. Sorry, I cannot recommend.

Worst purchase ever


I decided to give it a try after reading all positive reviews. I really don't know what those customers are talking about but this stuff peels off off your nails in no time! Just after a couple of hours! How can it cure your splitting/breaking nails if it peels off right away?! Long lasting base coat... What?! The manufacturer must be kidding.I've ended up returning this product and paying for return shipping. Don't waste your money, any drug store cheap brand works better then this.

Beautiful nails at last!


This is the best product I have ever used to grow nails that do not peel or split. The polish goes on smooth, has a nice shine, and has fortified my weak, thin nails. It takes about a month to see the difference. Be faithful with your applications and you will see beautiful results!

I have hopeless finger and toe nails- splits-deep (very deep) ridges and they neverever look acceptable. I polished my toenails last night-of course every fault showedup-I then used the instant nail thickener.A Miracle - the thickener went into everycrevice and I then applied a second coat andthere was no more visible evidence of myimperfect nails. Will not be without it.

Great Product!


Best base/topcoat ever! Really strengthens nails by adding thickness to weak or brittle nails without looking un-natural. Shiny finish completes the package. Definitely worth trying if you have weak or splitting nails.
