Getting a manicure opens the possibility of exposing your nails to harsh chemicals like nail polish removers. Over the past few years, there has been an increased watch over ingredients used in this nail care essential, which resulted in new non-acetone nail polish removers.

Non-Acetone Nail Polish Removers

Compared to acetone-based removers, non-acetone nail polish removers are milder on skin and nails. They typically contain ethyl acetate or methyl ethyl ketone as their active ingredients. While they may take longer to remove polish and are less effective on certain types like glitter, dip, and acrylic, they are gentler and less drying. Non-acetone removers are particularly suitable for those with nail extensions, as acetone can cause extensions to become brittle and lift.

Demiblue Non-Acetone Remover with Vitamins

Demiblue's product, priced at $11.95, is a soy-based nail polish remover enriched with vitamins A, C, and E, and essential lavender oil. This formula effectively removes nail polish while promoting healthy, moisturized nails. Free from acetone and harsh acetates, it's gentle on nails, cuticles, and skin. You can easily take off nail polish by gently letting a saturated cotton ball stay over the nail for 30 seconds and swiping it clean at the end of the timer.
