By Brown Ezilon.com Articles Published 04/29/2011 | Nail Care

Nowadays more and more people are becoming self conscious about their hands and nails as they realize how this effects their overall presentation when meeting other people. A lot of people will judge you due to the condition of your nails and if these are chipped, too long or dirty you certainly will not be making a good impression.

Because nail care has become an important factor in many peoples body care routine, more and more manufacturers are developing products destined for nail and hand care. There is now a wide selection of products and women and men have been using these regularly without realizing that many amongst them are actually harmful. Industrial products use toxic elements to produce many solvents and these not only damage the environment but the body too.

Fortunately green nail care has started to be introduced on the market, allowing those consumers who are conscious of the effects chemically produced products may cause to take care of their nails naturally and without side effects. Beauty salons are also providing green nail care treatments offering an environmentally-friendly option, so before you choose a particular beauty salon for your nail care make sure they do use these natural products for their treatments.

You can check that green nail care products contain no or very little chemicals such as natural nail polishes that are water-based making them the best choice for your nails. These nail polishes are made with water as a solvent instead of the chemical ones that were once used. Industrial nail varnish is normally produced using more than 75 percent of organic solvents, which are highly volatile and are absorbed by your skin and nails and are let off in the air you inhale. Water-based nail varnishes preserve you from these risks as they do not emit harmful odors and are not harmful when in contact with your nails and skin.

Organic nail polishes are also another alternative as non-toxic nail care products as only organic elements are used to produce this varnish. These types of nail polishes have been approved by the FDA, thus vouching for their safety. Ingredients that are usually used to produce these organic products are argan oil, henna, ethyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol and mica amongst the many other safe organic elements that can be used. These organic nail care products are a very good option as a substitute to the industrial that are found in large body care stores.

If you have been used to using these products you might find it hard at first to substitute some nail care products you have taken a liking for, but when you do you will be surprised at how satisfied you will be with these green products if you have a little patience and give them a try. You will surely gain in health and safety and will also be giving the planet a hand to keep it free from toxic wastes.
