Dermelect Resist Nail Bite Inhibitor is a dual-purpose, clear nail polish that gives off a distinct bitter taste to successfully discourage nail biting and thumb-sucking. In addition, Resist’s exclusive formula is the first peptide-infused, nail strengthening treatment that will work to help restore damaged nails and cuticles while promoting healthy nail growth. A stress-relieving habit, nail biting and thumb-sucking is commonly associated in both adults and children. Dermelect Resist provides a strong deterrent to keep your fingers out of your mouth while providing a keratin protein peptide to help restore your nails back to their natural strength and beauty.
The key ingredient, Bitrex, has a very bitter taste to it, supporting you to help resist the urge to bite your nails. Other nail bite products on the market have this ingredient. The key difference is that ours is expertly formulated with the 'just right' amount of it to provide enough of a proper deterrent to keep your hands out of your mouth. Other products rub off the nails and potentially end up on your hands and food.

Q: Why for children over the age of three?
A: Children's taste buds do not fully develop until after their third birthday, therefore this may prove to be ineffective in children under that age.
