If youre in the market for a new nail polish, you may have come across the termHEMA. But what exactly is it, and why should you avoid it? In this blog, well explain what HEMA is, and why going HEMA-free is the best choice for your nails.

 What is HEMA? 

HEMA stands for hydroxyethyl methacrylate, a chemical compound often used in nail polish and other cosmetics. It’s a type of plasticizer that gives nail polish a glossy, long-lasting shine. However, it can also be very dangerous. It’s a known allergen, and it can cause skin irritation and sensitivity. Long-term exposure to HEMA can also lead to serious health risks, including skin cancer and endocrine disruption.


Benefits of HEMA FREE

When you choose a HEMA-free nail polish, you can enjoy all the benefits of long-lasting, glossy shine without any of the risks associated with HEMA. HEMA-free nail polishes also tend to be more affordable and gentle on the skin, making them a great choice for those with sensitive nails or skin. Plus, they’re usually vegan and cruelty-free, meaning they’re not tested on animals and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients.
