Deborah Uncovers A Hidden Toxic Formula | Dragons' Den

  • Published on Aug 10, 2019
  • Entering the Den is Kent-based entrepreneur and former car sprayer Mustafa Mehmet, with a highly durable all-in-one gel nail colour range. The entrepreneur’s product was aiming to provide a “healthier, faster alternative” to the existing £453m gel nail industry. Whilst the entrepreneur's background fascinated Deborah Meaden - it did not take long for her to unearth the toxicity behind his natural nail solution.

    An international sensation, Dragon's Den features entrepreneurs pitching for investment in the Den from our Dragons, five venture capitalists willing to invest their own money in exchange for equity.

    Deborah is stupid if she thinks there is ONE product on the market that is non-toxic by today's standards. Everything that undergoes an industrial chain of preparation and packaging to be delivered on shelves is toxic. How stupid it is to expect a nail polish DESIGNED TO TOUCH THE NAILS & THE SKIN to be non toxic if ingested??! Deborah, do your nails with distilled water under a septic tent. Stupid bitch..

    First he says “non-toxic”, then he says “non-carcinogenic”. Not the same thing...
    Plus he has no clue about the ‘scientific’ words he uses.
    And, as others have said about Deborah Meaden’s comment about “natural”, that does not mean it is not toxic.

    Claiming the nail gel is non-toxic will mislead people. Since some people have the tendency to bite their nails, this claim will make people thinking that biting their painted nails is safe.

    Deborahs stupid. It’s non toxic nail polish. Just cause it causes irritation to the skin doesn’t mean it’s toxic. For fuck sakes, if you put water on your skin and it stays there while the rest of your body is dry, it irritates your skin. “Waters toxic now guys omgggg”-Dumb Bitch Deborah

    In his defence with the whole toxic warnings Debra read, we use the best hygiene hand at work and those warnings are still labelled, we’re even told to coat our hands with water first before applying the soap- which nobody does because it’s just mandatory precautions like he said to Debra! She was reaching there! They were still right not to invest because half his company was owned by some Chinese lab 🤔

    Peanuts are natural but people can be allergic to it. Some natural foods if put on the skin can cause rash or hives too.
    The generic label has to exist as people can be allergic to anything and ofcouse something for nails or hair cannot be eaten! Would you drink some natural shampoo and expect to be ok? Its not meant to be swallowed or applied to the skin. Lol.

    Another BS title by BBC. Deborah did not reveal a 'hidden toxic formula' all she did was read a standard legal disclaimer in the product from the testing lab which said it could be harmful if used improperly on skin, internally, in eyes etc.

    That's often the case with ANY product, even organic and very natural products which are non-toxic and totally safe when used normally. You can die from drinking too much water, yet water isn't toxic. It's not a good idea paint your skin with watercolour paints that can be absorbed through the skin and toxic inside the body, yet water colour paints are generally non-toxic compared other paints.
    The guys product was a lot safer than solvent-based ones and contained no toxic chemicals compared to other nail varnish products on the market. To trash his brand and product like this, is insulting and unnecessary, especially as it's not even true the way it's being presented here. OK so he may have stretched it a bit saying its 'completely natural' and maybe he should have said 'close to natural' but that doesn't justify this response.
