how to keep eyelash extension glue

Should I Keep Eyelash Extension Glue in Fridge?

There are lots of theories and suggestions about how to prolong the life of an adhesive. The quick answer to this is it depends upon your climate. 

Here's a list of things you should know to assist you to decide about the best storage for your eyelash extension glue!

1) Frequent temperature fluctuations will depreciate the freshness of the glue. Most lash adhesives, if not all, are sensitive to temperature and humidity. If you are living in a place where the temperature suddenly drops or peaks, it could diminish the life of your glue. It is always important to keep your adhesive in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight. 

The real question now is, 'Will keeping the eyelash extension glue in the fridge help last longer?' The answer is, NO! It is not necessary to keep the glue in the fridge if you are in a relatively stable environment. Hence in the summertime, where it could get extremely hot, you may store your glue in the fridge. Make sure to let the glue return to room temperature before using it.

2) Exposing glue to oxygen will break it down more rapidly, and therefore depreciate the life of the glue. 

We recommend opening the bottle and dropping a dot of the glue right into a glue ring, or on the glue stone. Then, instantly close the cap back on tightly. The thought is to not let the glue get exposed to oxygen. 

3) Most Eyelash Extension Glues should be good to use until the expiry date 

First, check the expiry date of the glue. It is usually printed on the bottom of the bottle and the back of the pouch/packaging. The shelf life of the glue is until the expiry date or at least 6 months from the delivery date. For best performance use the glue within 1-2 months from the date it was opened. It is not advisable to store the glue for a longer period as it can be exposed to oxygen over time and be spoiled due to sudden changes in temperature. 

TIP: Purchase glue when you know you can use it within a couple of months. Always contact your supplier with any questions you may have.
