Why You Should Try Vegan Nail Products

Why You Should Try Vegan Nail Products

Vegan products are taking over the beauty industry. In recent years, people have begun to learn about all the toxic ingredients that have been put into skincare, makeup, etc. More and more clean/vegan alternatives are being developed but have you ever really stopped to think about your nails? Yes, there are vegan nail products out there too! 

If you look at the label of most nail polishes, you’ll see chemicals listed, such as butyl acetate, heptane, and dimethyl adipate. Yes, some of these are completely harmless but some are not. The so-called “toxic trio” of nail polish consists of dibutyl phthalate (a plasticizer), toluene (to evenly suspend color), and formaldehyde (a known carcinogen that is used as a hardening agent). The toxicity of these substances is often debated, but there is significant evidence to think twice about if it is worth using products that contain them. 

When a nail polish (or any other beauty product) is cruelty-free, it means the company has not tested (or paid a third party to test) its products or ingredients on animals. Unfortunately, most nail polishes still include animal-derived and/or toxic ingredients. Some of them are used as a colorant, others are supposed to strengthen your nails, but in reality, they can be replaced with vegan ingredients without compromising on the quality of the nail polish. One can still receive a vibrant and quality manicure with vegan nail brands. 

Beyond ethical concerns, there are many benefits to opting for a vegan nail brand. By using vegan nail products, you can avoid harmful health effects and stay healthy even while painting your nails. It is a great step to take if you're looking to improve your health and wellness. Many vegan nail polishes also have vitamins and minerals that can help your nails become stronger in the future and also protect from daily wear and tear.
