Treat Collection polishes are “5-free” – this means they deliberately abstain from commonly used risky ingredients. No more doubts or worries about having your nails shine day after day, even during pregnancy or with children around – Treat polishes are so much healthier than regular products.
TREAT COLLECTION SAYS NO TO THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS:
An important building block for the chemical industry which in cosmetics is frequently used as dissolvent – even though it provokes allergies as well as irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tracks and is considered to be cancer-causing. Treat Collection does without this risk factor.
One of the oldest plastics with hard and break-proof properties, it is frequently used in the production of chipboards and circuit boards. However, it is deemed to cause allergic contact reactions and skin problems. We want you to be carefree when brushing a strand of hair out of your face or touching up on your make-up – this is why we opt for nonhazardous resins.
This liquid is also contained in gasoline and is used as a solvent – but EU Regulation classifies it as harmful to health. Its strong smell would drive you to your knees and can be addictive. To us, it is a matter of course to use vegan alternatives in our Treat Collection polishes.
DBP (Dibutyl phthalate)
A commonly used plasticizer used to keeps plastics elastic – but they are entirely out of place in baby articles, toys and cosmetics. Given that it is classified as toxic and dangerous to the environment it is even prohibited for such purposes in the EU. Unlike other manufacturers we have always made sure that our Treat Collection nail polishes keep supple and smooth using non-poisonous components!
Another component used as plasticizer – in addition it is used in pest control and blasting gelatine. Not very sexy, all the less since it is psychoactive and toxic, thereby causing nausea, respiratory distress and panic attacks. Nothing you want to use on your fingers or toes, which is why Treat Collection polishes make sure your nails shine healthily.
