Natural nail polish removers
Difference between acetone and nail polish remover
Natural nail polish remover can be hard to come by. The first thing to understand is the difference between acetone and nail polish remover. Acetone is a solvent—a chemical that breaks down the ingredients and colour in the nail polish. However, it also can dry out your nails and skin by removing and breaking down your natural oils. Makeup removers that don’t contain acetone, will contain a different solvent like propylene carbonate. They’ll also add moisturising and hydrating ingredients like aloe vera to combat the solvent. We recommend choosing an acetone-free nail polish remover like the ones we stock from Hanami Cosmetics.

A natural, acetone-free nail polish remover is the safest way to remove nail polish without stripping away natural oils and moisture. A water-based nail polish remover is the safest as it doesn’t use alcohol or other harsh ingredients as the base. Hanami Cosmetics water-based nail polish removers are perfect for those wanting to remove nail polish naturally and safely as they contain lots of hydrating ingredients but are acetone- and acetate-free. Plus you can choose from a liquid or wipes, which are great for travelling.
