Nail care products rarely steal the limelight but they do have a loyal fan base among cosmetics enthusiasts. Like with all other cosmetics, the majority of well known brands like Sally Hansen and Essie are not cruelty free, these brand chose to sell their products in mainland China where animal testing is compulsory by local law. Therefore when choosing a nail varnish or a cuticle care product it is important to check that the brand is ethical and cruelty free.
Regardless of personal style, caring for nails and hands is an essential part of a self care routine. Either you choose bright colours, French manicure or no colour at all, it is possible to build a 100% cruelty free selection of nail care products.
