LE is More Than Just a HEMA Free Gel Nail Brand | We believe 'What's Inside Matters' | Chemistry, Quality, Community | Why LE Chooses to be HEMA Free

Light Elegance has always been more than just a HEMA Free gel nail brand. We believe in the importance of formulating high-performing, high-quality products for nail pros and their clients, while building a supportive, family community based on the principle of enhancing the nail industry together, as a whole.  

Whether you are completely new to LE or have been with us for years, there is always an LE Family member ready to support you, answer your questions and help you thrive as a nail professional.  


Because we formulate and manufacture all of our gel and acrylic products at our Oregon-based facility, we are able to produce high-quality nail products unlike any other on the market. Everything happens under one roof, here at LEHQ so we can ensure complete control over what goes into our products and be meticulous about our quality control. 

Years of research and development inspired our vast selection of less allergenic, easy-to-apply gels and acrylics for all skin tones, nail types and styles—from natural nails to elaborate extensions. We’re meticulous about quality control, so you can be confident our products will look, feel and perform beautifully every time.

It is our mission to educate nail professionals and clients alike to elevate the industry we are all so passionate about. We’re accomplishing this by freely sharing important product safety and chemistry information that affects service performance and health—for both nail professionals and their clients.

Why does LE choose to be 100% HEMA Monomer Free?
Many brands use HEMA monomer because it is good for adhesion and cheap and is therefore popular among many manufacturers that choose price over quality. We choose to formulate without by avoiding ingredients such as HEMA, HEA, IBOA and other ingredients known to be more likely to create an allergic response.

At LE, we always formulate our products using only the highest-quality ingredients and choose ingredients less likely to cause allergic responses. This is why LE has such an extremely low number of confirmed allergic responses.

We believe we have a huge responsibility to keep the industry as safe as possible. This is why we choose to make all of our products from scratch here in Oregon, choose only the finest raw materials and formulate without using ingredients more likely to have an allergic response.
