What is the most eco-friendly nail polish?

An eco-friendly nail polish is one that is water-based without added chemicals, as these tend to be free from damaging chemicals. When choosing an eco nail polish, consider the packaging too, many nail polish are now more eco-friendly with wooden caps rather than plastic ones.

Is nail polish bad for the environment?

Many traditional nail polishes contain toxic chemicals that can leach into the environment through incorrect disposal of nail polish remover pads into water streams and nature. It’s best to switch to an eco-friendly nail polish and use reusable nail polish remover pads that are only disposed of at their end of life.

Is nail polish vegan and cruelty free?

Many conventional nail polishes are not vegan and actually contain animal products in their colouring, like guanine from fish scales and carmine from insects. Always look for a cruelty-free and vegan nail polish, like these from Zao makeup.

What is the healthiest nail polish?

The healthiest nail polishes are those that avoid toxic ingredients, like the no toxin, vegan nail polish range from Zao makeup. Ingredients to avoid include Dibutylphthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Xylene, Colophony and Synthetic Camphor all of which can cause irritation and skin problems.


By switching to a vegan nail polish, you still have a large variety of nail shades available so you can do all sorts of different nail art designs. With this collection of eco-friendly nail polishes and nail accessories, it’s easy to make your nail polish routine more environmentally friendly.
