A Fab List of 4 Free Nail Polish Brands

By Inspirationail

4-Free VarnishesLast time we featured varnish brands whose products are manufactured 3-free (without Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate and Toluene). This week we are taking things a little further and sharing brands who are also free of Formaldehyde Resin or 4-free brands.

Sticking To Our Story

For the sake of time, we are only going to include those brands who are committed to 4 free formulas. There are others which are even safer and we’ll share them in the weeks to come. Of course, as we get safer the lists will get smaller. While we don’t like them, chemicals are used in conventional formulas for a reason. They help the varnish go on smooth, adhere to the nail, dry quickly and form a hard barrier – and those are some hard acts to follow.

The process of replacing chemicals with less toxic (but just as effective) ingredients is not an easy one. Our hats are off to these brands for their work.

Don’t Be Shy

If we are missing anything, be sure to let us know in the comments below. We want to celebrate all of the responsible brands and share them with the world. Stay tuned for even safer varnishes next time & be sure to check out the 3-free varnishes and those that don’t test on animals as well.

    Julep has a range. Some are 3 free, some are 4 free, and some of the newer ones are 5 free. They are hard to put in a category because it depends on which color you have in front of you.
