Clean beauty is everywhere in skincare. Almost every brand has a clean product in its range and many have gone 100% clean in terms of ingredients, packaging or processes. The makeup industry is not left behind and clean formulas can be found in lipsticks, eyeshadows and blushes. So it is no surprise to see the rise of clean nail polishes on the market.
The issue with regular nail polishes is that they use ingredients that can cause hormonal disturbances, can be inhaled when applied and are directly in contact with the skin (nails to be accurate) for prolonged period of time.
Brands slowly started banning ingredients contained in nail polishes and nowadays you can find the following mentions on many bottles in the market :
The latest mention that has gained attention on this segment is “Plant-based” nail polish – it is basically a vegan formula made from plant extracts and other natural ingredients. It promises to create healthier, non-toxic nail colors that improve nail appearance, revitalize nail health & reduce moisture loss.
