L’Oreal- Nail Color/Polish/Enamels

Makeup has become a staple in many people’s daily routines. From simple everyday looks to elegant smokey eyes  and dramatic contouring, makeup has become the instant miracle worker for many seeking a change from the usual routine.  However, we typically do not always look keenly into what we are putting on/in our bodies for the sake of beauty. Today’s product review is the L’Oreal Nail Color Collection (the complete ingredients list is as shown below, courtesy of www.lorealparisusa.com). Ingredients may vary for the different nail colors produced  by L’Oreal.

Caution: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve cosmetics, although they do approve color additives used in cosmetics. It is the responsibility of cosmetic manufacturers to ensure, before marketing their products, that the products are safe when used as directed in their label or under customary conditions of use. Therefore, ask yourself what is the long term effect of continuous exposure to all these different chemicals, and what extensive studies have been done (if any) by the industry to ensure safety for human use.

Natural Alternatives: Suncoat, Sotch Naturals, Acquarella, PiggyPaint, and WaterColorsNailEnamel.
These natural options are comparable in price when compared to the main stream chemical loaded options, and offer a more wholesome beauty regiment, with hardly any risk of long term adverse health effects.

Stay beautiful inside and out!
