Q & A:
Q: Is there any anti-bacterial effect on the fingernails?
A: There is no antibacterial effect on the fingernails. It has an antibacterial effect only where the product has been applied on the gel nail surface. It forms a barrier on top of the gel surface. The nail itself does not become anti-bacterial.
Q: Isn’t Escherichia coli and yellow staphylococcus a food poisoning bacterium?
A: Escherichia coli and yellow staphylococcus are representative of various bacteria, so they are said to have antibacterial properties against most bacteria.
