Opt for a Toxic-Free Summer Manicure With Nail Polish from Kure Bazaar
For quite a long time, the market for natural, toxic-free nail polish looked pretty scarce. Then French brand Kure Bazaar came along and changed the way we think of maniqures forever.
And yes, neutrals forever!
To many, the path towards a toxic-free lifestyle starts during pregnancy, which was also the case for Kure Bazaar founder and former model Kartika Luyet. Having a baby made her stop using conventional nail polish all together as it’s known to be one of the most chemical-filled and toxic beauty products on the market. Unable to find a better option, she decided to team up with a close friend working in the cosmetic industry to research the possibilities of a toxic-free nail polish that didn’t compromise on either quality or style.
Wanting a natural varnish that was still resistant, long-lasting and quick-drying with great color and maximum shine, they found that a formula with 85% natural-based ingredients – free from nasty toxins like toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate and synthetic camphor – gave the best result, and so Kure Bazaar was born. Sourcing their raw materials from plant-based crops like wood pulp, wheat, cotton, potatoes and corn, they’ve been able to launch a next-generation, “eco-trendy” nail polish in more than fifty contemporary colors.
They also released an all-natural nail polish remover rather recently – the first of its kind – free from acetone and ethyl acetone as well as odors. The “oil in water” formula is based on rose hip oil and rose floral water, with natural solvents coming from sugar cane, wheat and corn. We’re sure this is especially appreciated by pregnant women, who can be sensitive to smell, or those with allergies. We always love a scent-free solution – less is more in beauty, always.
