BZ Lady nail polishes are 10-Toxin Free
… but what does it mean exactly?
When creating the BZ Lady formula, we have taken the recipe of traditional polishes we could find in stores, we've identified and removed 10 toxic and harmful ingredients (related to cancer, skin irritation and breathing problems) and we've replaced them by harmless alternatives.
Here is the list of the 10 hazardous ingredients we removed during this process and which are unfortunately still commonly used in traditional nail polishes available in stores:
