At Bat Your Lash we believe that true beauty is all about feeling beautiful and healthy, inside and out; which is why we use beauty treatments that are natural, organic and provide you with health benefits even when you may not realise it! We are big believers from staying away from heavy chemical-filled products and products that can do more harm than good. Many of our new customers are unaware of what is actually in their traditional beauty products they use on a daily basis such as nail polishes, makeup, skincare products! We want to provide our clients with products that are beneficial and reduce toxic harmful effects on the body, by using organic products where possible.
So what’s really in nail polish?
With all the nail salons in and around Melbourne it can be easy to go with the ‘cheapest’ option. But have you ever thought about what’s actually in the trusty nail polish? Could your nail polish be doing you more harm than good? The answer is unfortunately yes, nail polish from your local drug store or a nearby salon may in fact have toxic chemicals that can not only damage your nails but have detrimental health effects. Women are estimated to put an average of 168 chemicals on their bodies everyday through the application of a number of beauty products, such as toluene. Toluene is a toxic substance used to give smooth application and finish and is commonly used in nail polish and is extremely toxic. It has been proven that “repeated or prolonged exposure to toluene can result in decreased brain functionality, neurological damage, respiratory problems, nausea, and hearing loss”. That is why it’s extremely important to understand what is in your nail polish and mani/pedi treatments.
What’s in OUR nail polish?
At Bat Your Lash we exclusively use BioSculpture Gel, Shellac, & Sienna Byron Bay Polish.
