None of Piggy Paint’s products are in the Cosmetics Database, so I’ve linked to each ingredient above. Every ingredient has a hazard score of 2 or lower.
Some great things about this product:
1. It’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone.
2. It’s cruelty-free.
Product Description(also provided at piggypaint.com)- “Low odor, hypoallergenic, no acetone nail polish remover. Put harmful, smelly polish removers behind you with Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover, a remover that works quickly on all polishes, especially Piggy Paint Nail Polish. Our remover contains none of the solvents that could offend your nose or harm our atmosphere. Aloe Vera and Vitamin E are added to supplement the natural oils that protect nails and cuticles.”
Price– around $8.99 for a 4 fl. oz. bottle.
Performance– Not only did this product remove Piggy Paint from my toenails, but it also removed the old Sally Hansen polish residue that had been there for months. This remover works best when nails are soaked for at least thirty seconds with a remover saturated cotton ball (using this remover to get rid of polish any other way requires a good bit of scrubbing). I know it seems like a little extra time/effort, and it is, but avoiding acetone is totally worth it for me.
Scent– It smells like alcohol, which is exactly what you’d expect a product with corn alcohol in it to smell like. It isn’t overwhelming, and it doesn’t give me a headache like my previous nail polish remover. I appreciate that.
Rating– 10/10. I have no complaints!
Would I purchase this item again? I would and will.
