Women are notoriously known for being particularly fussy about grooming their nails. No surprise here seeing that nails actually reveal a lot about your personality. Neat hands and nails can do wonders if you want to leave a good impression, which is why it is so important to take proper care of them. The best part is you can do it without even a trace of chemicals.

Like our hair, our nails regularly need a certain amount of fat to stay nourished and healthy. You can do that with nail oil and or an eco-friendly hand cream. Manufacturers of natural cosmetics usually place their bets on argan, almond, olive and sunflower oil as a base. Add in easily absorbing fats like shea butter and there you have your organic skin care without unnecessary toxins. Take for instance Dr. Hauschka’s Neem nail oil, it promises intensive nail care and it doesn’t disappoint thanks to the contained Neem leaves, chamomile as well as anthyllis, which by the way also strengthens the structure of your nails. Apropos strengthening: If you struggle with brittle nails, worry no more. Biokosmas intensive nail treatment contains milk-white as well as wheat germ extract that will not only cater to your brittle nails but will keep them healthy in the long run.

However, a manicure is not finished until we splash on some nail color, now is it? Well, unlike nail care, nail color is much rarer when it comes to eco-friendly products. That’s mainly due to the requirements that every polish has to fulfill. There are only a limited number of eco-friendly ingredients which can be used in nail polishes. That is why it’s really hard to manufacture colored polish without using specific chemicals. But I personally think that if you take proper care of your nails, you won’t need color at all. After all, shimmering, healthy fingernails are the epitome of health and vitality.
