We have a conscious approach to developing our formulas: We don't use synthetic or potentially harmful ingredients, replacing them instead with natural alternatives. All gitti products are made from high-quality ingredients, are produced ethically in the EU, and are 100% vegan and eco-friendly.
We have a clear goal for our nail colours: 100% natural formulas. We've already found replacements for a variety of ingredients found in conventional nail polish. There is however no consistent, official rating system for nail polish. "X-free" claims are most often used to express how many harmful ingredients a nail polish doesn't contain. But as every manufacturer has their own definition or can put their own list together, this claim can often be misleading and can be extended to include ingredients, which normally wouldn't be used in nail polish or that are already forbidden in the EU. We want to consciously distance ourselves from such misleading uses of the "x-free" definition.
All of our nail colours are 19-free, vegan and eco-friendly. That means the following 19 harmful or potentially harmful ingredients are not contained in our nail colours:
Formaldehyde-releasers, Toluene, Phthalates, Camphor, Animal-derived Ingredients, Parabens, Added Perfumes, Sulfonamide, Xylene, Acetone, Benzophenone-1, Benzophenone-3, Hydroquinones, Colophonium, Mineral Oils & Waxes, Microplastics (according to UNEP's 2015 definition), Diethylhexyl Adipate, EDTA, Triphenyl Phosphate
Transparency is very important to us. Which is why it's only natural for us to explain what's in our products and what isn't. You can find more information in our glossary and in the nitrocellulose article.
