Earth Day 2017 marked the launch of our new "clean & natural" nail menu! We are so excited to announce that we will be phasing in our new Big10Free (toxin-free nail polish) & organic products from Body Bliss.
As we phase in our new product lines we will be donating any leftover products & polishes to a local charity.
Zoya is vegan, cruelty free & Big 10 Free which means:
No Formaldehyde -classified as a known carcinogen, formaldehyde is often used as a preservative, nail hardener and strengthener in conventional polishes.
No Formaldehyde resin- a derivative of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin is often used as a hardener and in large doses can be a skin allergen.
No Dibutyl pathalate (DBT)- shown to affect the reproductive system and linked to cancer, DBP has been
used as plasticizer and solvent to increase wear.
No Toluene- included in some polishes as a solvent to smooth application, is has been linked to impaired human reproduction and development, impaired breathing, being harmful to the nervous system and nausea.
No Camphor- added to some polishes for high-shine, camphor can cause allergic reactions in large doses, cause irritation, dizziness, nausea and headaches.
No Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP)- also known as TPP, research suggests it causes changes in hormone regulation, metabolism and reproductive systems. it has been used in polish as a plasticizer which makes the polish flexible yet durable.
No Parabens- used as preservatives, parabens get a bad rep for having estrogen-mimicking effects which may trigger hormonal problems.
No Xylene- used by some brands to help polish from getting gloppy, xylene is also a known allergen and a possible carcinogen.
No Ethyl Tosylamide- this ingredient has antibiotic properties which raises concern over antibiotic resistance. it can be used as a plasticizer to help polishes dry faster.
