  • Safe ingredients for nails gel

    Posted by Anonymous on May 19, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    I plan to start a new line of Nails gel, have no chemicals background and buying it from a ODM, in the MSDS sheet from the manufacturer, I got the following list of ingredients. In the recent articles in the NYT about nail polish, many of the ingredients used are poisonous/toxic. Nails gel is a different beast, butere is a list of ingredients from my distributor and I wonder if any of them are toxic, and if some of them can be replaced/reformulated to be more safe, natural.

    Thank you in advance in shredding some light into this. I want a safe product for my customers.

    You need to consult with a professional toxicologist, and then with a chemist who specializes in nail polish. Good luck with your project.
