4 ways to Green Your Nail care
When it comes to greening your nail care, the most important step is to choose products—polishes, removers, and other elixirs—that contain the least amount of chemical solvents. Next, look for products that are packaged in recycled and recyclable material. If you have your nails done in a salon, try to find one that uses low-chemical product lines, recycles their waste, and employs energy- and water-efficient practices.
Water-based nail polishes and those that are free of the common petrochemicals found in conventional polishes—such as toluene, DBT, and more—are safer for the environment and your health.
Acetone-free and water-based nail polish removers keep dangerous petrochemicals out of the environment and protect you from chemical-related health issues.
Green your beauty regimen by visiting a salon with regulations in place to protect you, salon employees, and the earth from toxic chemicals.
Forgo the color. Keep your nails healthy and well-maintained with natural nail treatments instead.
