Cyanoacrylate glue is the general term for quick-bonding 'super glues.' Cyanoacrylate glue is actually an acrylic resin, as opposed to a traditional adhesive like a water based wood glue. Usually an acrylic resin consists of two separate liquids, which, when combined, harden and adhere. In the case of cyanoacrylate glue, the hardener is water, generally moisture from the air. Because human skin is also naturally moist, full of ridges and very porous, a user of cyanoacrylate glue may find himself an involuntary participant in the bonding process.
