No... They don't even call or have any word related with BKT on their bottle. They are not even call BKT, they are just call KeratinComplex. Which is a french formula / copy from the original BKT out there (many) and safer that Coppola. Believe me as I have been doing this treatment for 5 years.
They use aldehyde .. but do you really know what aldehyde is?...is Formaldehyde 100%. Read about it online.
But this is not the case. Formaldehyde or Aldehyde use by Coppola, is the same one use in other big brands like Marcia Texeirakeratin, Natura Keratin, Rejuvenol, Global etc.
Your salon is just paying $100 more for a product that is mediocre. YOu will realize once you perform coppola treatments in comparision of performing a treatment with the real ones out there that cost average $250 instead of what your salon paid $350.
I am not trying to make you feel bad, I just want to share my experience as a hairdresser and BKT expert.
TIP: IF YOU APPLY COPPOLA ON A CLIENT THAT HAS ALREADY TRIED A BKT BEFORE, DO NOT DO IT AS YOU WILL END UP LOSSING YOUR CLIENT. THEY WILL GO BACK TO THE OTHER ONE, TRUST ME.
