Once nail polish wears off and starts chipping, it’s time to remove it. Mainstream nail polish removers may contain harsh and powerful ingredients which although may remove multiple coats of nail colour can have a negative effect on health.

One ingredient to watch out for in your nail colour remover is Acetone. Classified as 3/10 health concerns by the EWG,  which is low-moderate on their scale, they have stated that there is moderate evidence of human neurotoxicity, it’s a known human respiratory irritant, strongly suspected human eye irritant, classified as expected to be toxic or harmful to the environment, classified as medium human health priority, and animal studies show classified as toxic effects at moderate doses.

It’s important to remember that many of the above stats are talking about much larger volumes and concentrations than we would come into contact with, however, if there is a healthier alternative, wouldn’t you choose it?

FRESH THERAPIES’ Natural Nail Polish Remover

is one natural alternative I return to time and time again. It’s safe and will not damage the natural oils within your nails which helps you maintain optimum nail health! There’s also no smelliness, just a hint of lime scent for a fresh fragrance.
