All OOO Polish Lacquers are leaping bunny certified and toxic free without compromising on quality!
Leaping Bunny Certified means none of our products or ingredients are tested on animals or created with animal bi-products. 100% Cruelty Free. Our products are now 10-free but let’s explain what that all means and why we still use 8-free as our promise.
So what does all that mean? 3-Free? 5-Free? 8-free? 10-free? Even 12-free?
It can definitely be difficult to decipher what that means and if it even matters. For the most part, most polishes don’t contain cancer-causing chemicals and some companies often include chemicals that weren’t even present in polish to begin with, like parabens or being cruelty free to constitute their 10-free promise. But all that isn’t necessary.
Our focus is that it’s great that many companies are choosing make safer products! It creates an industry standard that’s safer, and that’s all that matters! So with that said, go with a brand that’s transparent and you can trust and you are all good!
8-free means that our hand blended polishes do not contain:
Toluene-Dibutyl Phthalate-Formaldehyde-Formaldehyde Resin-Camphor-TPHP-Ethyl Tosylamide-Xylene
These 8 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans.
OOO Polish Lacquers are not shellac or gel polishes and do not require curing under UV lights. This is traditional high quality nail polish.
