If you have ever received a manicure or pedicure, you know how that experience leaves you feeling refreshed and reenergized. Although our hands and feet are not typically the first thing people notice about us, there is definitely a confidence boost that comes with knowing you are well-put-together from head to toe! However, some may be hesitant to book an appointment due to many products containing ingredients that are harmful to us and the environment. If you're on the fence about receiving a professional manicure or pedicure, continue reading to learn more about the safe, environmentally-friendly products we use to elevate your everyday look!
In over 100 shades, CND Shellac gel polish offers our clients 14+ days of flawless nails with no dry time or damage to the natural nail. Removing other gel polishes is difficult and during the process the top layer of the nail is damaged, leaving nails dry and prone to breakage. CND shellac can be removed with a solvent that reduces the stress on your nails, leaving them with less damage.
Along with its impressive staying power, CND shellac is also hypoallergenic and excludes the use of toxins found in other shellacs such as formaldehyde and methyl ethyl ketone. This health-friendly shellac can give you amazing results and peace of mind! Shellac does require the use of UV lights so using a sun protectant on your hands is a great way to prevent unwanted exposure.
Eco-Fin Wax Treatment
Wax treatments have long been used for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Traditionally, paraffin wax was used for these treatments but further research showed paraffin contains multiple toxins that can cause skin reactions and damage the environment. Luckily, you can receive all of the amazing benefits of paraffin with an eco-friendly, biodegradable, and toxin-free alternative called Eco-Fin. Eco-Fin wax uses all-natural emollients and essential oils to help moisturize and rejuvenate skin on the hands and feet.
Once your feet and hands are dipped in Eco-Fin, covers are placed over them, creating heat that encourages your skin to absorb a moisturizing blend of soy, jojoba, coconut, and sustainably farmed palm oils. You will be amazed by the soft, supple, and youthful appearance of your skin following your treatment!
