The Lipsticks range, with its creamy texture, its rich in natural ingredients such as Shea butter, Monoi butter, Argan oil and soy glycerides. Elements carefully combined to provide care, nourishment and moisture to your lips, with the latest trend in colours.

The entire line of nail products has been carefully formulated to avoid those most harmful chemicals:

  • Formaldehyde: This carcinogen is found in many nail polishes. It is a chemical produced on a large scale and used by various industries as a preservative and disinfectant. It has been classified as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
  • Toluene: This chemical may cause memory problems, fatigue, confusion and nausea and can affect the nervous system. In contact with skin it can be an irritant and even cause dermatitis.
  • DBP (Dibutyl phthalate): Due to its toxicity the use of this substance in cosmetics, including nail polish, is banned in the European Union.
  • Formaldehyde Resins: As a derivative of formaldehyde it can cause irritation and dermatitis.
  • Camphor: The FDA does not allow camphor to be used in volumes greater than 11%, it is poisonous if ingested in large quantities and can cause seizures, confusion, irritability and neuromuscular hyperactivity.
  • Parabens: Preservative that can alter the hormonal balance of the body, an action known as an endocrine disruptor.
  • Xylenes: This is very irritating to the skin, eyes and respiratory system. This chemical also effects the central nervous system with symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and tremors. Xylene is toxic to blood, kidneys, the nervous system, liver. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. If xylene is absorbed into the skin, effects such as redness, swelling, pain, itching and dryness may occur.
  • TPHP (Triphenyl Phosphate): It is an endocrine disruptor, and is known to cause developmental and reproductive problems in animals.
  • Ethyl Tosylamide: Europe has banned this product due to its antibacterial properties and concern over antibiotic resistance.

The nail will be better cared for and therefore healthier and less brittle.

The Lipsticks are also formulated with natural extracts and we have removed the parabens and the silicone D5.
