I know that the powders have PMMA and in that's form it's OK (the powder) just the liquid is harmful.....but what about gel?? Can gel contain the harmful MMA???

Hi Anna,

I have never heard of MMA being a concern when it comes to gel products.

Are you concerned about the one you are using or maybe another nail technician or is it just an 'I want to know' question?

I'm not an authority so I will give the Geek a nudge to reply to you as soon as he can.

Well, to be honest I have heard that this one gel (not one of the onces I use) "might" contain MMA......I didn't know what to say...I know powder is OK, liquid is not...but gel....? I don't know....

MMA could be used in a gel. The safety would depend on the concentration of use. I suspect it would not be a problem at low concentrations.
Just out of curiosity..Why r u interested?
