Safe, Vegan and Plant-Based Nail Polish Options for Kids

Safe, Vegan and Plant-Based Nail Polish Options for Kids

Posted by Vanessa Neyman on

When it comes to painting kids nails, there are several options that we as parents can choose from. There are traditional nail polishes we would use as adults, water-based nail polish that washes/scratches off, and plant-based options such as the range that we sell here at Oh Flossy.

Kids nail polish not only allows them to express their creativity but also keeps their little fingers looking stylish. Kids love to emulate their parents and painting nails is no different. We've worked to formulate a vegan nail polish that is safe for kids and is quick drying and long-lasting. We know how hard it can be to keep wriggly ones still when painting nails, so quick drying nail polish is a must!

The importance of kids safe nail polish versus traditional nail polishes

When it comes to kids nail polish, safety should always be the first consideration. Children have delicate skin and are more prone to allergies and sensitivities. That's why it's crucial to choose nail polishes that are free from harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). These chemicals can cause skin irritation and long-term health issues. These ingredients would generally be found in traditional polishes that adults would wear and not suitable for children's nails.

Avoid adult nail polish as these tend to be more toxic nail polish for kids

Opting for safe nail polish for kids ensures that their nails remain healthy and free from any adverse effects. Look for nail polishes that are labeled as "non-toxic" or "safe for kids." These polishes are usually, plant-based, water-based or formulated with natural ingredients that are gentle on their skin and nails.

Toxic nail polish options generally won't call out the benefits of their formula being plant-based or safe for kids nails. These will tend to have more toxic ingredients or harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde resin. Generally, these more toxic nail polish options will require a chemical nail polish remover in order to remove the paint from the nail. This in turn means using more harmful chemicals on on your child's nail.

The Oh Flossy kid friendly nail polish range is a great alternative due to the reduced harsh chemicals in the formula and while it is not claimed to be a completely natural nail polish (these don't exist - yet), it is gentler and safer for children's nails. We have also developed a more safer nail polish remover through our specially formulated water based nail polish wipes. These wipes are acetone free and water based making them a very effective and safer alternative to the traditional acetone based nail polish remover.

Cruelty free and vegan nail polish is generally more non toxic than adult nail polish

Understanding the Different Types of Kids Nail Polish Options

When it comes to kids nail polish, there are various options to choose from. Let's take a closer look at the different types available in the market:

Kids are always on the move, and waiting for nail polish to dry can be a challenge. That's why quick-drying nail polishes are a great option for busy parents and impatient little ones. Look for polishes that have a fast-drying formula to minimise smudging, allowing for a mess free application while letting your child to get back to their activities in no time.
