LCN LUXURY UREA PEDICURE

July 10 2017

Lydian Flash attended a Certification Class to become a Certified LCN Luxury Urea Pedicurist.


Information about some of the ingredients in the LCN Luxury Urea Line

UREA - Due to its original version being found in the blood and other tissues, synthetic versions of Urea used in cosmetics are considered a skin-identical and repairing ingredient.  In skin care products such as the LCN Urea Luxury Pedicure line, the ingredient has two major benefits: it’s a very good moisturizing agent for dry skin and, in higher concentrations (above 10%), it can be an exfoliant.

SHEA BUTTER - This solid fatty oil made from the nuts of Karite Nut trees has exceptional healing effects.  Shea butter is also a rich source of antioxidants.
 

SACCHARIDE ISOMERATE is a good water-binding agent and emollient for skin. It is an effective moisturizer containing natural carbohydrates found in the stratum corneum of human skin. It binds to the free amino groups of lysine in the keratin of the stratum corneum, and cannot be washed off easily, leading to long-lasting moisturization. 


PROVITAMIN B5 - has natural broad ability to moisturize, soothe, heal and regenerate the skin.

JOJOBA OIL - The oil's gentle moisturizing properties heal and soothe damaged skin. It nourishes without making skin oily.  Jojoba Oil can also be used to treat windburn and sunburn.

Allantoin and Panthenol - to calm the skin

Lydian Flash Earns IBX Certified Pro Credential

On January 12, 2015, Linda Nordstorm Co-Founder of Famous Names Products and Educator for IBX Systems has certifed Lydian Flash an IBX System Certified Professional.  Lydian also attended a hands on IBX Certification Class in April 2016 and an Advanced IBX Certification Class taught by Linda & Jim Nordstorm in April 2017.

IBX SYSTEM creates nail strength from within.  


IBX is a New Revolutionary two-part system that acts as a Protective Shield for the natural nail under any Gel Polish Coating and can also be used as a Natural Nail Strengthening System to grow natural nails more readily on their own!  IBX is the first system of it's kind...this penetrative toughening system works inside the nail (instead of top), is cured with LED light and forms an interpenetrating polymer network that fuses the upper layers of the nail together.  The result is a tougher natural nail that can grow on it's own or act to protect the nail against frequent and potentially damaging removal.

IBX won INNOVATIVE IDEAS AWARD by Doug Schoon and Nails Magazine Readers Choice  Award.

Lydian is very Excited and Proud to offer the IBX System as a service in her salon.

IBX System, a new professional-grade nail strengthener and protective shield from Famous Names.

IBX is the first treatment of its kind. This penetrative toughening system works inside the nail instead of sitting on top like traditional nail services.

The IBX application process is designed for ultimate penetration into the nail plate. 

IBX is a new kind of salon service, offering professional help for weak and damaged nails. This intensive strengthening treatment works so you can build up length and durability, starting from the INSIDE OUT.

 

IBX actually fuses the layers in the upper portion of the nail plate together with an interpenetrating polymer network (IPN). This patent pending formula locks itself within the nail plate–a permanent addition that will never need removal.
