I love this nail hardening base coat! I paint my nails regularly so this is perfect for giving my nails the care they need! It's free from toxic ingredients unlike most nail products so is actually beneficial! Useful to strengthen nails, thanks to silica, it can be used as a treatment for brittle nails that need fortification. It is ideally applied as an undercoat prior to applying nail polish. Free from toluene, formaldehyde, synthetic camphor, rosin, dibutylphthalate and xylene. Organic water-based nail polishes chip and flake very easily, so Zao has devised a nail polish that enjoys the quality of traditional nail polishes but without the toxic chemicals, resulting in an effective and long-lasting nail polish that does not compromise your health. NAIL HARDENER / BASE COAT FEATURES Although this product is not completely plastic-free, by switching the top to a bamboo lid it will reduce a lot of plastic from the overall product! They will one day be refillable too so you keep the brush and just replace the pot! NO synthetic preservatives Cruelty-free Vegan Net weight: 8 ml Full ingredients in the tab below Not only does the bamboo lid cut down on a lot of plastic (the brush inside is still plastic) but this doesn't contain any toxic ingredients! Instead, it will enrich your nails in silica which is made from bamboo oil and you can use without limitation! MY FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS Bamboo rhizome macerate - thanks to its high content of organic silica, the bamboo macerate helps to give strength to nails, making them more resistant to splitting and cracking.
