  • Non Acetone Nail Polish Remover

    Hello all

    I have a formula for Non acetone nail polish remover:
    Methyl Ethyl Ketone @ 10%
    Isopropyl Alcohol @ 13%
    Ethyl Acetate @ 75%
    Aqua @ 1.7%
    Colour @ 0.3%

    The problem is that the product makes the skin white.

    Previous formula was 
    MEK@ 70%
    Isopropyl Alcohol @ 5%
    Ethyl Acetate @ 10%
    Aqua and colour
    but the product was not effective (did not remove red nail polish properly). The skin was not white

    With the first formula - product works well but makes skin white. Any ideas how to sort it out?
    Thanks

    Thanks. Is any chance to sort it out without adding or removing any of used ingredients?
