These days it is your responsibility to know exactly what you are putting in and on your body. There’s simply no excuse not to be vigilant when you have so many resources at your fingertips (number 1 being the internet). Research should be an integral part of your everyday curriculum. When it comes to beauty products you may be shocked at all the crazy harmful ingredients that constitute your favorite cream, face wash, lipstick, and so on.
There are 5 consistent offenders in the beauty realm, called the Big 5. These are the most common toxins found in your products: Dibutyl Phthalate (an ingredient that’s been linked to cancer and other health concerns, including problems in the endocrine system, increased risk of diabetes in women, reproductive issues and birth defects), Formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), Formaldehyde Resin (a known irritant), Toluene (known to cause dizziness, liver and kidney damage, numbness, and has been linked to birth defects), and Camphor (a poisonous substance that also carries the same harmful effects as Toluene).
Zoya is one of the brands that I love because they are Big 5 FREE and vegan. I’m especially careful with my nail polish because it goes directly onto your nails which is absorbed into your body. But just because this nail polish is toxin free doesn’t mean its selection is limited or dull. On the contrary, they have everything from sweet pastels and soft nudes to deep dark lush reds, greens and purples and elegant metallics (and everything else in between)—there is something for everyone. It is so easy to make the healthier choice that is just as glam as regular polish brands. There is a big misconception that you can’t be trendy if you use you greener, cleaner, and kinder products but this is simply untrue. These days eco conscious safe brands like Zoya have upped their game and are on par with the best mainstream beauty brands (if not better) without the nasty chemicals and toxins that are so damaging to you.
In the Philippines, Zoya is distributed by Mixexpert Manila and is available at all leading nail salons and spas, including Nailaholics, Posh Nails, Beauty & Butter, and Nail Tropics and Nails.Glow.
