Welcome to our healthy and innovative water-based nail polish. It is the only long-lasting and quick-drying water-based nail polish product on the market.
Our water-based nail polish has been recognized and honored for the second consecutive year at the Canadian Health Food Association Expo, winning the Silver medals of Alive Awards of Excellence in 2004 and 2005.
Water-based nail polish has been a long held dream for cosmetic scientists. There has not been a quality water-based nail polish on the market until 5 years ago when Suncoat launched its water-based nail polish line. Many of the major cosmetic companies have attempted to develop water-based nail polishes. It is however the technical difficulties that have prevented them from being successful. From Suncoat’s experience and knowledge, the major technical challenges for formulating water-based nail polish is lack of adhesion (to human nails) and slow drying time. Suncoat Products Inc. has also faced these challenges yet has persevered for a long time to overcome them. Thanks to Yingchun Liu, the chemist and founder of Suncoat, Suncoat finally broke through, and came up with an innovative technology that makes today’s Suncoat water-based nail polish a quality product line.
Toluene and formaldehyde-free chemical nail polish is not comparable to water-based nail polish. In these nail polishes, toluene is replaced by other chemicals, namely butyl acetate and ethyl acetate. So toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish are still 100% chemical nail polish. Chemical solvents, namely acetates, are still the major ingredient in the polish: 60-70%. These nail polishes still give off chemical fumes, pollute the air, have an offensive odor, and are highly flammable and explosive. They still can harm nails, making the nails dry, yellow, brittle and weak.
In Suncoat water-based nail polish, the chemical solvents (toluene and acetates etc) are replaced by water. Toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish is only one step forward while Suncoat water-based Nail Polish is a revolutionary advance!
Suncoat water-based nail polish contains ~70% water. When applied, water vapor is released in to the air, not chemical fumes. Thus Suncoat water-based nail polish is
- Environmentally friendly
- Does not dry or discolor nails
- Virtually odor-free
- Phthalate free, FD & C dyes free.
Earth pigments and carmine are used for Suncoat nail polish colors.
Apply 2 to 3 thin coats to clean grease-free nails. Dry fully between coats. Apply Suncoat Clear Top Coat for an even longer lasting finish. Do not soak nails in very hot water within 8 hours after application.
Remove nail polish weekly with Suncoat Natural Nail Polish Remover.
How to Remove Suncoat water-based Nail Polish:
Remove the polish weekly for easiest removal. Water-based nail polish can become hard-to-remove if left on the nail for extended time.
Remove with natural nail polish remover:
Suncoat natural nail polish remover is highly recommended. Dab the remover onto nails using a Q-tip / or a cotton ball. Allow at least 2 minutes for the remover to soften the polish. Then rub the nails using a Q-tip / or a cotton ball until the polish is fully removed. Rinse hands with water to remove residue.
Repeat when necessary.
Remove without natural nail polish remover (not recommended for weak and damaged nails):
Soak nails in hot water for at least 2 minutes, gently scrape off the polish using a fingernail.
Do not allow to freeze.
Suncoat is against animal testing.
Please do a small skin / nail patch test before wide spread use of our products. Consult your health care provider for further advice.
