If you do some research, you will notice that Eyelash Extensions are getting more and more popular. It’s good to know that eyelash extensions come mainly from Qingdao, China, where 85% of eyelashes are produced (including some big brands). Of course, not all suppliers of eyelash extensions are the same and that’s why those involved in professional makeup and beauty business must be careful. The following is a simple guide that will help you get the best eyelash extension supplies:
How to choose good eyelash extensions supplies?
- Check their product line
There are some suppliers that sell eyelash extension supplies including related products such as glues, tweezers etc. They usually claim that they are an original manufacturer which is not true because these supplies are completely different. If they have eyelash extensions and false eyelashes in their offer, they cannot be professional eyelash extension manufacturers since the equipment for eyelash extensions and false eyelashes is completely different. In addition, the staff skills requirements are different.
- Check their material
There are three basic materials used for the production of eyelash extensions. First of all, there is a cheaper synthetic material which is very rough and can destroy your natural eyelashes. Second, PBT material imported from South Korea also known as faux mink material. This material is soft and natural but it’s very expensive compared to synthetic material. Lastly, there is real mink from Siberia best known for its luxurious appearance, but the curls don’t last for a long time. Additionally, this material is bad for the environment because it hurts animals and nature in general.
- Check the working environment
Unfortunately, some eyelash extension manufacturers are manufacturing these items in very dirty and inadequate working environment where the staff has to work on high temperatures. All that sweating and inadequate conditions affect the quality of the product. In order to create clean and safe eyelash extensions, the staff must wear professional clothes, toxin-free gloves and the overall working environment must be clean too.
- Check the process
In most cases, the process is similar at least when it comes to the cost. However, there are two steps in this process that can lead to significant differences in the final cost of these extensions. The first one is the sterilization of the raw material. This step includes multi-processing disinfection treatment which is here to eliminate the bacteria without damaging the natural eyelashes. In the end, it includes a final sterilization right before the eyelash extensions are packed safely. The other step involves the use of a steamer when curls are set with the help of high temperature. This step guarantees that the curl will last for a longer period of time. Keep in mind that the steamer equipment usually costs around $120.000. This is the reason why many small factories avoid this kind of investment. The final result is a long list of dissatisfied customers complaining about the short-lived curls. When you include the international shipping time, you can end up with a bad product before you start selling it.
- Check their international certification
Safety is one of the most important things in this process. This is especially true for eyelash extensions which are applied to real, natural eyelashes. Eyelash manufacturers with an international standard certification will make sure that every product is tested, certified and follows the strict international standards.
