This testing method analyzed the salon air by monitoring the vapors released during an actual complete application (including blowdrying and flat ironing) of the KERAPURE™ Keratin Restructuring Complex on a volunteer. The test results confirm that KERAPURE™ Keratin Restructuring Complex complies with the OSHA regulations regarding Formaldehyde vapors. The OSHA regulation action level for Formaldehyde is 0.5 parts per million (ppm) and 0.75 parts per million (ppm) is the highest permissible level. The test results show KERAPURE™ Keratin Restructuring Complex released less than 0.06 parts per million (ppm), (which is below the lowest level that the testing equipment is able to identify) – this is more than 10 times lower than the OSHA action levels.

We have spent years researching alternatives to formaldehyde and formaldehyde-donors and have discovered a new technology that mimics the results of Brazilian Keratin treatments without any of the risks. In addition, we have had independent laboratories test the vapors of KERAPURE™ in closed environments and actual salon environments to confirm that there are no toxic levels of formaldehyde gases released at anytime during the process. The results of these tests show a less than 0.06ppm reading – more than 8 times below the formaldehyde inhalation action limit (below the lowest readable level).*
*Since the indoor and outdoor air that we breathe normally contains some formaldehyde, we are all exposed to very low levels of formaldehyde fumes and the passive monitoring devices cannot detect below 0.06ppm, therefore it is impossible with this testing method to have a 0.00ppm reading.
Independent laboratories have also tested the actual formaldehyde level in KERAPURE™ using the method recognized by the FDA and Health Canada. The test results confirm that KERAPURE™ Keratin Restructuring Complex contains less than 80 parts per million (ppm), or less than 0.01% of the formula, (which is below the lowest level that the testing equipment can identify) – this is more than 20 times lower than the amount of formaldehyde allowed in a cosmetic product set by the Cosmetic Review Board.
