10-Free

By eliminating the 10 most concerning chemical ingredients traditionally found in gel, we offer you a cleaner nail care experience. Here's what our formula promises to leave out.

Hema

A common trigger for reactions in beauty products, emphasizing the need for safer contact with skin.

Toluene

Often inhaled or absorbed through the skin, toluene can cause skin irritation, light-headedness, and nausea due to its impact on the nervous system.

Parabens

Their estrogen-mimicking capabilities have sparked a significant discussion on their impact beyond simple preservation.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)

A plasticizer with connections to serious concerns, pushing us to find safer alternatives.

Formaldehyde

Known for its use in preservation, this chemical can provoke irritation and has been linked to severe concerns due to its carcinogenic properties.

Formaldehyde Resin

Less toxic than its predecessor but not without its own risks, including potential allergenic effects.

Camphor

Acts as a barrier on nails, blocking essential nutrients and leading to discoloration.

Xylene

A known irritant to skin, eyes, and lungs, with potential for systemic toxicity.

Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP)

Used to enhance flexibility in plastics, its potential as an endocrine disruptor has raised flags about its broader implications.

Ethyl Tosylamide

A fast-drying plasticizer, restricted in Europe due to concerns over antibiotic resistance.
