Do you know about the 'toxic trio' in nail polish?



 Every women love mani-pedi. The trick is how to enjoy this ultimate treat without taking in the toxins...

Do you love your summer manicured toes?  Are women at risk?  One thing is sure, we live in a toxic world, and  unfortunately our beauty regimes are not spared. As "Informed Beauties" we know that what we put on our bodies is just as important as we put in our bodies.

Yes, even our nail polishes are pesky suspects. As it turns out, our nails are quite porous and our bodies absorb what is put on them. Additionally, there is blood flow right under the nail beds which means a direct pathway for chemicals to travel into our bloodstream. The chemicals found in the majority of nail polish are quite toxic, containing what’s referred to as the “toxic trio” – Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and Formaldehyde.

Be FREE of these THREE 

1. Dibutyl Phthalate or DBP:

  • Adds flexibility and a moisturizing sheen. Helps dissolve other cosmetic ingredients

  • Reproductive and developmental toxin linked to feminizing effects in baby boys

2. Tolune:

  • Helps suspend the colour and form a smooth finish

  • Affects the central nervous system

  • Can cause headaches, dizziness and fatigue

  • A possible reproductive and developmental toxin

3. Formaldehyde:

  • Nail hardener

  • A known human carcinogen

  • Eye, nose and throat irritant

  • Can lead to skin irritation, and allergic rash called dermatitis.

  • Can irritate the respiratory system

  • Can trigger heart palpitations

  • Can trigger asthma

Dont worry Beaute'- you don't  have to forgo your bi-weekly pedi pamper.




  Kasia Organic Salon features NATURAL PEDICURES!

We LOVE Acquarella Nail Polish.  We believe it's the cleanest on the market.

Acquarella’s non-toxic polishes are odor-free and formulated without formaldehyde, phthalates, petrochemicals or solvents of any kind. They’re also specifically designed to hydrate nails and have an innovative fast-dry formula.

Since Acquarella contains water and allows the nail to “breathe”, it creates a permeable environment where the nail can exhibit both qualities. We assert that consumers will see a change in their bare nails with pro- longed, repeated use.


Here are just 'some' of our natural pedi polishes that we think rock!
