Nail polishes for children
Who doesn’t know it: children who want to paint their fingernails and toenails just like their mothers. The beautiful, bright colours fascinate the little ones and if they are playing dressing up or are invited to a princess tea party, are coloured nails also part of it. Pink, green, orange, blue – everything what the heart desires. But then you have the nasty, chemical smell in your nose and ask yourself whether nail polish is harmful for the children. The answer is yes! Nail polishes contain many substances (e.g. formaldehyde, plasticizers, acetone) that are harmful to our body. The tiny amounts of substances that adults absorb with nail polish can be harmful enough and what does that look like for children? Since their bodies are still developing, these ingredients are even more harmful to them, especially because children for example often lick their fingers.
But are there alternatives to conventional nail polishes? Yes, there are! There are some manufacturers who have dealt with similar questions and developed nail polishes which are suitable for children. Many of the harmful substances are not contained in these children’s nail polishes. Some manufacturers even produce their nail polishes without any chemical ingredients and use only natural resources such as plants, fruits and vegetables. In addition, the little ones do not need to use nail polish remover. Most of the nail polishes for children can be easily washed off with soap and water or are so-called peel off nail polishes, in this case the nail polish can be peel off from the nails like a gummy layer. If it is not a washable or peel off children’s nail polish, there is also an alternative for nail polish remover suitable for children, which is usually offered by the respective dealers.
