Jessica - First Lady of (Green) Nails!

Jessica Vartoughian, founder of Jessica, has proved once again that she is the foremost trendsetter in the nail industry. Aware of the struggles the environment faces everyday, combined with the health and well being of her clients as well as the nail, Jessica created a way to give back to Mother Earth and her clients. For the first time in the nail industry, this compassion has been turned into groundbreaking way to ‘go green’.




While other nail companies are just now following the trends that Jessica herself has set, Jessica Cosmetics developed its eco-friendly line in 2004. All of the polishes are free of Toluene, Formaldehyde and Dibutyl Phthalate.



Facts About Non Eco-Friendly Nail Products:

- Formaldehyde is classified as a possible carcinogen by the EPA and can cause itching and burning of the skin. It's already been banned for use in cosmetics in Japan and Sweden

- Regular use of nail polish containing Toluene can create brittle, chipped nail surfaces
- Dibutyl Phthalate is a potential developmental and reproductive toxin that may cause a broad range of birth defects.
