TOP 5 Vegan & Cruelty-Free Nail Polish Removers

It’s has been about a week now and it’s time to remove that old polish! But before you grab your conventional nail polish remover; let’s learn what acetone is. Acetone, a common ingredient found in nail polish removers, is a colorless, volatile, flammable organic solvent. That’s right! It’s naturally occurring. It is found in small amount in plants,trees, or even blood. So why do people avoid it? Well, acetone is still a harsh chemical, especially when directly applied onto your nail. This can lead to drier, more brittle nails over time.

But you don’t need acetone to remove the polish. All you need is some alternative ingredients, such as different oils, to help lift the color from your nail, while still moisturizing your digits. Here are some vegan and cruelty-free nail polish removers to try!
