We usually don’t think much about what kind of chemicals we apply to our fingernails with nail polish and possibly absorb into our bodies. I haven’t been involved in this either until I came across nail polish brands which use non-toxic ingredients only. When I found out about the brand gitti a few months ago, I quickly learned that they not only make chemical-free nail polish, but also go one step further.
gitti is a German brand and they made it their mission to make nail polishes better – namely on a natural basis. Currently it is not yet possible to produce 100% natural nail polish. Nevertheless, Jenni – the founder of gitti – joined forces with a team of experts and is working on innovative formulas to make nail polish as harmless as possible.
What makes gitti nail polishes so special? gitti nail polishes are either water-based or plant-based. The water-based nail polishes consist of 55% water, the plant-based polishes consist of up to 77% of natural ingredients (e.g. cassava, sugar cane, corn and wheat), which makes them both incredibly environmentally friendly. A large part of regular nail polish consists of chemical solvents. The gitti nail polishes are also vegan, are not tested on animals and the water-based polishes are completely odourless.
