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.

    "Rheology is the study of paint"...... tried to make ourselves seem more important, informed, and educated than we really are, huh? Although. Rheology can be and is applied to paint, it is the study of how materials flow and deform. It's not not specific for or limited to paint. It's for any and all materials that can alter states.
    I guess if you like watching watching and learning how water goes from gas to liquid to soild, from no form to free form to solidified too are a rheologist. I am and I study all materials

    I'm new to Dragon's Den. But I read a comment on one of the videos that I watched that had a few K likes. Something along the lines of "top 5 things you can be sure of in the Dragon's Den" One was obviously that Debra is always out, and also never hand your papers over to Debra. I knew this man was done when he handed those papers over....

    So its unique selling points are that it's quicker than anything else on the market (which it probably isn't) and that it's safe to put on nails

    BTW, just for information, 8:24, different "natural" products can cause all kinds of damage to human body etc etc. My mom made a bandage on her arm, where pieces of garlic would be in contact wiht her skin for hours of time. It burnt her skin pretty badly. Natural.

    In defense of this guy who presented his product as natural non toxic, I must say that his claims can be further stretched if judge by anyone whitout knowledge in science. What the dragon is asking for is a product that is essentially INERT, such product doesn't exist and will ever do, because any substance will have an effect in health, so saying this will not cause damage is to an extent a lie. No product can be drinked, eaten, inhaled, touched and poured down the eyes without expecting a reaction. So the base of her argument is fraught because she doesn't get that if something is tested for a certain part of the body, and it's safe, that doesn't mean the product should be consumed without any issue. Let me take you to toothpaste. Toothpaste is meant for the cleaning of the teeth, and within its formula it includes things like preservants, flavoring, abrasives, etc. That aren't meant to be consumed, even dentist would say it's toxic when eaten, even though it gets in contact with the starting part of your digestive system. There is a misunderstanding about the non toxic claim, and that what she read are the security sheets of every chemical (maybe natural) that when handled in their pure form must be carefully handled. That's why the guy was saying, this is basically a technicality; but the guy didn't studied chemistry to know that this is what security sheets report. Aside from the natural thing that already misleads customers, I don't think the product was a loss.

    So what are the real units for how dangerous this is? He advertises it as natural (a category meaning the substance is completely neutral/inert, or is well handled by the body)... But it's not okay to swallow, I wonder what the effects are?

    they're actually both right, it is boilerplate, but using the phrasing, and the *claims* is where literally he's created a liability. while on the very stage he's asking for an investment, on both the professional and the integrity side, he's made massive blunders that read as mendacity. neither bode well for him to garner investment. she is correct in attacking him on the claims - BUT the legal boilerplate is generic. So they are both right, but he is wrong because he used libelous verbiage. so for those reasons, I'm out.

    Non toxic means it should be safe in any circumstance not just on the nail. This guy is crazy.

    "Rheology" is not the study of paint...ffs. Also, SGS is just a testing facility, not a governing body. They will only test what you ask them to test.

    Giant hogweed is natural. Yet it will cause a burn that last year's and become irritated when hit with light.

      It can cause 3rd degree burns that hurt for months and scars that will last years and still kinda burn. A gardener was nearly blinded cutting one by accident.

    Deborah is out of touch with scientific reality. Dosage decides if something is medicine or toxin. Every food is toxic, that is why we age. Glucose i toxic, fructose is toxic, proteins shorten lifespan i overdosed but they are essential nutrients. The point is to make smarter choice, safer alternative.
    The wank look on Debroah fece tells the story. I did the show, I showed power, superiority, win the debate can dissmiss you. Cheese, this is tv show, but best if would not be about 'wining the argument' like debates exploiting logical fallacies, for the croud applouse.
    The 'no chmicals' pitch was absurd.
