In my quest of providing smart, safe and sweet services to all of you, I always have a few things on my mind that I know that I and Yourselves care about.
So the newest addition of products that I have for use and sale is Zoya Nail polish!
I have been reading about zoya for many years and it is a top brand when it comes to high quality nail polishes.
.. the first to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) from its formulations…
This company fullfills the smart, safe, sweet 100%!
Smart: created by a chemist designed specifically with natural ingredients.
Safe: safe to use on everyone, being 5free.
Sweet: cruelty free is nice to our furry friends who don’t need makeup and natural is nicer to the planet.
“Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) comes from the family of phthalates, a classification of compounds known to be disrupt function of the endocrine system. Phthalates can alter hormone levels or disrupt the way the body handles its response to hormones. Although studies about the toxin are relatively recent, it has been known to cause birth defects, including neurological and developmental issues in fetuses.
Toluene is a neurotoxin that can also irritate the upper respiratory system. It has been known to harm the nervous system of people of any age, but it can cross through the placenta and reach the fetus to cause developmental defects as well.
Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen that is also known to cause respiratory problems and can exacerbate problems in people with asthma and other breathing issues.” — This is concerning to me working with nail polishes all day long.
That breakdown was from a CBS news report on 25 different “natural nail polish brands claims false”. You can read the rest here. Spoiler: Zoya was 1 of only 2 brands that their claims were substantiated by the findings.
I don’t just only need to be safe for my client’s health but I need to protect my own and my responsibility to being a good member of this planet.
Right now in salon I have the 2015 Summer Island glitter collection along with some static collections of pinks, satins and nude colours.
I have been trying out these polishes and I will say on top of all the feel good reasons to use and buy this brand: it dries SUPER fast! Even in one swipe its full coverage! I love it: best buy ever!
