Liss Ker - The Facts
Liss Ker – The Facts

Why is Liss Ker revolutionary? 

Fanola Liss Ker is revolutionary due to the fact that before now, Keratin Smoothing / straightening has been an arduous task often taking hours in the salon. Now you can perform the same treatment in half the time with the same (if not better) result. It’s also half the price!

Liss Ker is Formaldehyde Free!

This is a tricky one because although a company might say that their product is Formaldehyde free, doesn’t mean it is. This is because Formaldehyde is a gas. Formaldehyde is released when certain chemical elements are heated or mixed with water.  The active ingredient in Liss Ker is Glyoxylic Acid which is an organic compound and will not vapourise into Formaldehyde Gas.

Formaldehyde is a carcinogenic gas known to cause cancer in humans in circumstances where they are exposed to larger amounts. Formaldehyde is a colourless gas with a sharp, pungent odour. (Sourced from ACCC – Australian Competition and Consumer Commission). You can read more about Formaldehyde here:

As you can see from above, Liss Ker is on par with the big Keratin Smoothing Players on the market but for a fraction of the price. For the aforementioned brands you can pay upward of 35c per ml for the smoothing treatment. Which doesn’t sound like a lot but when your minimum purchase is 1L… It adds up quite quickly. Liss Ker works out to 13c per ml and at an economical 300ml you can get it for $39.50!
