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.

    A snake's venon is natural but toxic. So product can be non-toxic and natural. It just means that the product has not been modified and is non-toxic.

    The Chinese have played him. No downside for them if he's successful or not. No loss, potential gain and he does all the work pitching it. If this product was really any good, he wouldn't need Dragons Den and the Chinese wouldn't need him.

    Deborah: “It is toxic”
    Entrepreneur: “It’s for nails! It doesn’t damage the nail”
    Me: Well your skin is right next to the nail. Besides toxic is toxic it’s not about the application.

    4:30 lol i'm not even chemistry-educated but the first thing that popped into my mind was "you mean the uv-cured ones?"
    well... still has the upside of not needing the uv-nail lamp.
    ...and assuming from the title, still has the downside of being toxic due to containing some ...i'd guess car paint component =D

    There's a big reason the dragons are so strict and quick to rile with stuff like this, and that's the simple fact that this is putting people's safety at risk. And when you're putting non-toxic on bottles of stuff that can require medical attention if consumed it's potentially lives at risk, especially considering one of the common reasons people seek non-toxic versions of products is to use around small kids

    Naturally, as is so often the case, it's the "vague consumer-centric expectations game" that caught him out. Shame. Sounds like he has a legit product. It's been tested for legal compliance with safety regulations but the Dragons are interested in USP. Alas they are not subject experts in chemistry.
    The tragedy of course is that he's actually right: the safety data sheets for the formula components are truly not easy for the non-specialist to grasp the implications of, and it was a mistake to allow such a person (however senior in their own field) to attempt to interpret them. Better to provide an executive summary report. They contain terms which sound scary to a viewer, but I can assure you that the safety data sheets for common essential oils are pretty horrendous as well.
    The fact of the matter is that it is simply illegal to sell a cosmetic product in the UK which would bring the consumer to actual harm directly through its intended use. If it is compliant with the law here, it is safe within all reasonable expectations.

    FOR THE RECORD - regular cooking flour, baking soda, etc have MSDS (material safety data sheets) that use language like "seek medical attention, respiratory irritation, choking hazard, wear goggles" etc. Pretty much everything has language like this used.

    I think he hasn't invented the formula, the Chinese laboratory invented or just "mixed car paint with gel" and made a deal with him for 50-50 patent cost and ownership. I am pretty sure that car paint is pretty toxic for the human body thus the cautions are written for the users to prevent potential damage to their body and the laboratory's reputation and money.
