Goodbye Glue is the first glue-less eyelash adhesive in over 113 years
Hard to believe that there haven't been any advancements when it comes to eyelash adhesive since Canadian Anna Taylor patented eyelash glue in 1911.  Women have been using toxic eyelash glue blindly without understanding the two key chemicals used are actually carcinogenic or cancer causing:  formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate. According to the World Health Organization, formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate are classified as cancer causing carcinogenics.  More astonishing is the fact there are no regulations in the U.S. when it comes to cosmetics unlike in the U.K. where more than 1500 chemicals are banned. Goodbye Glue is made from 3M medical-grade adhesive that's tested and chemical-free.  Clean beauty is more than a buzzword as women are looking for products that don't contain parabens, toxic chemicals or testing on animals.  Goodbye Glue is leading the way as the safest alternative when it comes to eyelash adhesive. Besides being non-toxic, there are many other benefits including ease of use and how quick the lashes can be applied.  No waiting for glue to become tacky or dry and no cleaning lashes after use.

Glue vs. Medical Adhesive: Why You Should Say Goodbye to Eye Lash Glue
Eyelash glue is sold in hundreds of different stores worldwide by a variety of well-known brands. Because of this, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s a safe product to put near your delicate eyes. However, this isn’t the case. False eyelash glues are full of nasty ingredients that can cause damage to your eyes and eyelids. This doesn’t mean that you need to stop wearing false lashes, instead, you can make the switch to a safe medical adhesive, such as Goodbye Glue’s lash strips. The Harmful Ingredients in Eyelash Glue Eyelash glue has two main harmful ingredients that can cause damage to your eyes. These are formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate. You’ll find them in nearly every eyelash glue and the damage they can cause is significant. Formaldehyde is a chemical that is commonly used in superglue, which instantly tells you how dangerous it can be. The chemical is colorless and highly toxic. As a gas, it can even become flammable at room temperature. Exposure to this harsh chemical can cause skin irritation, so the worst possible place to put it would be your eyelid. Other known reactions include watery eyes, burning in the eyes, a sore throat and coughing. If you notice these symptoms while you’re wearing eyelashes, then you should instantly stop wearing them with lash glue. With continued use, formaldehyde has even been known to lead to cancer.  Another harsh ingredient that’s found in eyelash glue is cyanoacrylate. Just like formaldehyde, this chemical is also found in superglue, making it equally as dangerous. Cyanoacrylate can also cause serious health concerns such as skin irritation. It’s also a huge concern if the chemical encounters your eye, which if it's used to stick a false eyelash to your lid, is very likely. This can cause serious injury, resulting in a medical emergency. Also, if the product is swallowed or meets open skin, it can poison you, meaning you’d need to seek medical help instantly.  Why Are Popular Eyelash Brands Still Using Glue? With such harmful ingredients in eyelash glue, it may have you questioning why well-known brands such as Ardell, KISS and Kara Beauty are still selling glue adhesive. The main answer to this is that it’s a cheaper option. The brands can sell their glue for less, even though it’s harmful, consumers will buy it because it’s a low price from a trusted company. These brands can even include their glue with false eyelashes to make customers think that they’re receiving a good deal. Brands such as Ardell have managed to sell their DUO eyelash glue across the globe. It’s available in different drugstores, supermarkets and online. It’s hard to walk into a drugstore and not see a DUO glue tube stacked on the shelves. With these popular brands leaving out the health risks of using their product, they entice people into using their glue and thinking it's safe. Medical Adhesive The safest option to use is a medical adhesive. It’ll keep your lashes in place and will also ensure you’re free from any skin irritation or other health concerns. A medical adhesive won’t feature harmful glue ingredients like formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate. Instead, it will be kind to your skin and will leave you feeling happy and confident. Medical adhesive tape is often used by doctors to keep bandages and other dressings glued securely to the skin to protect wounds. This goes to show how strong and sensitive the tape is. If it can keep bandages in place, then it can certainly keep your lashes in place. Not only this, but being used so close to open wounds, shows just how safe the adhesive is to use on your eyelids. The tape sticks down with pressure and it doesn’t include any glue solvents, so you know it will keep your lashes secure without damaging your eyes or causing you any irritation. Goodbye Glue Strips The Goodbye Glue strips have been created with a medical adhesive to ensure they’re completely safe to use. The strips are free from harmful glue ingredients such as formaldehyde and cyanoacrylate so there’s no need to worry about the Goodbye Glue strips irritating or damaging your eyes. The strips have been created with 3M medical tape. This is a game-changing medical technology thanks to the tape being so gentle, yet strong on the skin. 3M tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic, so even if you suffer from highly sensitive skin, the tape won’t cause any irritation or allergic reactions. Not only does 3M tape stop any form of irritation, but it’s also waterproof and breathable. This means you don’t have to worry if you get caught in the rain, your lashes aren’t going anywhere with Goodbye Glue strips. As a breathable tape, your false lashes won’t feel uncomfortable or heavy, which can happen with lash glue, especially if you need to keep reapplying glue throughout the day. Along with being safer for your eyes, the Goodbye Glue strips also create less mess. As lash glue comes out of a tube and excess glue can become sticky. Also, accidents can occur if you squeeze too hard or maybe even step on the tube. With the Goodbye Glue strips, you can say goodbye to any mess. All you have to do is peel off the tape and apply it to your eyelids, followed by the false eyelash. Many benefits come with a medical adhesive over eyelash glue. The most important benefit is that a medical adhesive is safe to use. There are no nasty chemicals that can irritate or cause damage to your eyes. The Goodbye Glue strips put your safety first, and with their 3M technology, they’ll stick firmly to your eyelid. There’s no need to worry if they come loose during the day. You can also forget about allergic reactions or long-term damage as you know this is by far the best adhesive for your lashes.

The Hidden Dangers of False Eyelash Glue
One of the biggest beauty trends in the UK right now is false eyelashes. With many Brits wearing them for nights out, big events, or even to elevate their everyday look, it's no wonder why they’re so popular. With major drugstores such as Boots and Superdrug selling a wide range of styles, such as dramatic or wispy, the looks you can create start to become endless. Whichever style you choose to go for, the one thing you would expect is a safe application. However, this isn’t always the case. Just because the glue is sold in leading stores, there can still be hidden dangers that aren’t always highlighted at the point of sale. This can include experiencing allergic reactions, eye infections, skin damage, lash loss and sometimes even long-term conditions such as cancer. Allergies main hidden danger when it comes to false eyelash glue is allergies. Sometimes, we don’t always know we’re allergic to something until it's too late, and this can be a main concern with eyelash glue. If you aren’t aware you’re allergic to lash glue, then you may only start reacting to it once its stuck on your eyelid. Cyanoacrylate, an ingredient also commonly found in superglue, is the main chemical to cause an allergic reaction. Key symptoms include itchy skin, swelling and eye discharge. If your symptoms don’t ease up within a couple of hours then it may even result in a trip to the emergency department, which would well and truly be your special event ruined. If there’s one thing that could be even worse than an allergic reaction to false eyelash glue, it would be an infection. An eye infection can be nasty, causing pain, vision loss and large amounts of discomfort. Infections Infections are commonly caused from bacteria entering the eye. If false eyelash glue accidentally encounters them, then this can cause bacteria to keep growing in the area. If you’re a contact lens wearer, this can be especially dangerous as your lenses can harbour the bacteria and make the infection even worse. An eye infection from eyelash glue can occur in numerous different ways. One way is after you’ve worn false eyelashes and the glue hasn’t properly been removed from your eyelid. This can also be the case if you’re a regular false lash wearer and a buildup of glue residue is leftover on the eyelid. It may even occur from poor hygiene, for example, if you forget to wash your hands before applying your false lashes, which is something that can easily happen. The most common infection false eyelash glue can cause is conjunctivitis. Symptoms include pink eye, discomfort or pain, discharge, light sensitivity and itchiness. Usually, the infection will clear up by itself, however, if it’s particularly persistent you may need to pay a visit to your GP for antibiotic drops. Skin Damage It’s a common misconception to think that false eyelash glue will be kind to your skin. After all, it’s so accessible in the United Kingdom, you’d be easily mistaken for thinking it’s safe to use. This isn’t always the case, even if the glue is applied carefully, it can still cause damage to your skin. False eyelash glue is known to weaken your skin barrier, which is not only dangerous for your delicate eyelids, but it can also contribute towards signs of aging. While this may not be a concern if you’re in your early twenties, it can start to cause concerns later in life when aging becomes more stressful. Along with aging, any glue residue can even cause skin discoloration and the last thing you want is a permanent strip of color running across your eyelid. Eyelash Glue If glue has been applied to your skin, then it would be no surprise that it can pull parts of your body off with it, such as your much-loved long and natural eyelashes. You may not think it’s that extreme if a few eyelashes come away when you pull your strip lashes off. However, with regular false eyelash use, it can become an issue if lashes keep coming away. Repeated application of false eyelash glue will weaken your natural lashes, meaning more and more can fall out after each wear. Lashes can take a long time to grow back, and they may not all grow back at once, leaving you with uneven lashes. It may even become an additional expense if you need to buy other beauty products such as eyelash serum to help promote the growth of your natural lashes. Long Term Concerns Particular chemicals in false eyelash glue such as formaldehyde, carcinogen and latex can all cause long term health concerns if you regularly use false eyelash glue. It’s commonly known throughout the health industry that these ingredients can damage the skin and even cause cancer with repeated exposure. Alternatives Fortunately, there is a way for you to avoid all these key concerns that come with false eyelash glue, without having to sacrifice your beauty. With the Goodbye Glue strips, you don’t have to worry about your eye health. The strips are made with a medical-grade adhesive tape that is both hypoallergenic and medically approved in the US. It means you don’t have to worry about any lasting damage, infections or allergic reactions, allowing you to feel safe in your own skin. Women from the UK are well known for loving false eyelashes and the transformative effects they have when it comes to the eyes. What women in the UK shouldn’t have to accept is jeopardize their health to look their best. With the Goodbye Glue strips this isn’t something that has to happen anymore. With a progression in technology, there’s no need to sacrifice your health or worry about any nasty reactions or infections.

Why We Love Our False Eyelashes But Not the Toxic Glue
Women love wearing false eyelashes.  While it might seem like more and more women are wearing them the trend actually started back over 100 years ago.  In 1911, a Canadian woman named Anna Taylor patented false eyelashes in the United States. By the 1950s, fake eyelashes became a staple in Western culture. Eye Makeup manufacturers evolved with growing demand. They swapped hair for the more readily available plastic in the 1950s. After this, the materials began to get even more advanced, and the trend grew. Fast forward to 2023, and U.S. sales of eyelashes topped $2 billon dollars.  It's safe to say false eyelashes aren't going anywhere which is why we created a safe and effective way to attach false eyelashes.  It's called "Goodbye Glue" strips for lashes.  Medical grade adhesive strips designed to attach your lashes without the harmful chemicals found in eyelash glues and removers.
