The other day, I was cleaning the kitchen when I noticed that my house was VERY quiet considering I have a 3 year old daughter. After calling my daughter, Maddie, several times with no response, I went to look for her. Imagine my surprise to find her in the bathroom "painting" her toenails. Maddie not only had polish all over her toes, feet, and legs, but also across the floor and walls of my bathroom. As any mother would instinctively do, I panicked thinking of all the chemicals and toxins that my daughter had painted all over herself. There’s a reason small children and pregnant women aren’t supposed to use nail polish! Just as I was about to call poison control, my panic was subsided as I saw the polish Maddie was using: Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish.
I was instantly relieved because I know that Dr.’s Remedy is all natural, unlike all those other regular nail polishes at the drug store. Some of the scary stuff regular polish has is formaldehyde, a chemical that has been proven to cause cancer; DBP, a potential developmental and reproductive toxin that has been linked to birth defects and is banned in Europe; and toluene, a chemical the EPA restricts in our drinking water. Dr.’s Remdy includes none of the above! It actually contains vitamins and wheat protein, to promote stronger nails and naturally increase shine.
I have now thrown out all the "bad" bottles of nail polish and have stocked up on Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish. With over two dozen shades, I have a color to match every outfit and the security of knowing that this polish is safe for me AND my 3 year old daughter. I also have Dr.’s Remedy all natural acetone free polish remover, so I can safely remove Maddie’s full body pedicure. So if this ever happens again (and I’m sure it will!) I know Maddie will be "painting" with an all natural product so no harm can be done… to my daughter at least. Now my bathroom is another story!
