Irwin Naturals Healthy Skin, Hair plus Nails
The good news is that some of the herbs that help our skin and hair are also great for the nails. Irwin Naturals contains Horsetail, which is a nutritive plant full of important minerals and Biotin, an essential vitamin that improves the strength and luster of brittle nails. It also contains a special blend of vitamins and minerals to build and protect connective tissue and Bioflavonoids to help protect the cells from free radicals that are created by the sun and environmental pollution.
Natural Nail Polish and Remover
Now that your nails are nourished, treat them to natural polish and remover that is free of harsh chemicals. Who knew that typical nail products can contain a variety of very questionable chemicals? Unfortunately, a report released by the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Department of Toxic Substances Control found the toxic chemicals dibutyl phthalate (DBP) , toluene, and formaldehyde in most of the 25 nail products that they tested. Known as the “toxic trio,” DBP and toluene are considered known developmental toxins and formaldehyde is a known carcinogen (source: Forbes.) Thankfully, there are natural nail products you can choose to keep you away from these chemicals. Mineral Fusion makes beautiful chip resistant polishes in 62 shades that do not contain formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate. Mineral Fusion Nail Polish Remover is a gentle, acetone-free formula that easily removes even the darkest shades of nail polish without drying the nail. Plus, it helps prep and clean the nail surface to extend the life of color.
Make sure to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement.
