The Importance of Choosing A Non-toxic Nail Salon

Non-Toxic Ingredients
Non-toxic nail products provide a safer alternative to traditional nail care with natural ingredients free from hazardous chemicals like Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP), Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide, Methylisothiazolinone (MIT), and Parabens. These toxins can trigger skin irritation and severe health issues such as cancer, allergies, respiratory issues, and congenital disabilities. Investing in natural products and services that use nontoxic products ensures that both your nails and health are cared for and maintained without the extra dose of danger.

A message from our CEO & Founder AmyLing:
“Being in the nail industry for 10 years and having started two regular nail salons in the past I experienced so much behind the scenes that taught me a lot about the health aspect that goes into nail care. I became conscious of the harm that stems back from toxic chemicals found in products that are used in nail salons. While the experience of inhaling toxic fumes for customers is already enough to be unpleasant, we can only imagine how much harm it does to our technicians. The salon industry has not changed in the past 30 years and I soon saw that clients needed something different. I wanted to create an experience that truly brings relaxation into place instead of having the typical come in and leave quickly salon experience. This is where the guided meditation manicure was born and the inspiration to encourage self-care and wellness came about. As a person who suffers from severe anxiety, I hope you can reconnect with yourself just as I do, one nail at a time.”
