Do you know how many toxic chemicals there are in most nail polishes? We were shocked when we found out – many contain ingredients that are banned in the US.
That's why we've sourced all-natural nailcare products for our Nurturing nails manicures and pedicures, from the Himalayan salt scrub to exfoliate your feet to the deliciously scented essential oil blend we use to massage your hands. We are passionate about keeping things natural at The Hub, both for your health and the health of the environment, so everything we use for the manicures and pedicures is non-toxic, contains no chemicals and is based around plants and essential oils. We are enriching and hydrating your nails (rather than wrecking them!) as well, of course, as pampering them fresh and pretty.
The Dr's Remedy nail polishes are enriched with a special blend of organic ingredients that nurture nails, including tea tree oil, garlic extract, lavender, wheat protein and vitamins C and E. Free from the toxins contained in most nail products, such as formaldehyde, toluene and DPB (banned in America), and ingredients that dry and damage nails, they are specially formulated for – and to prevent – dry, brittle nails. They were developed by podiatrists and recommended for discoloured nails and helping fungal issues. They are also vegan and cruelty free.
Proof positive that our products are premium quality and non-toxic is that Corinne, our Nurturing nails practitioner, had to stop doing manicures and pedicures a few years ago because she became highly sensitive to the ingredients in the products she was using. She is loving our range – and loving being back doing what she does best: making your nails look lovely!
