Nailkind is a new vegan and cruelty free Danish nail polish brand. They describe themselves as ‘low-chemical cosmetics’, referring to their nail products containing up to 85% bio-sourced ingredients. Their plant based ingredients include potato, corn, manioc and wheat, aiming to reduce their environmental footprint. Because they’re such a new brand, reviews are scarce, but I have high hopes for Nailkind as a brand new vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly nail brand.
Is Nailkind Cruelty Free?
It’s hard to imagine a brand like Nailkind being an animal tester. Nevertheless, I had to carry out my due diligence and, due to the lack of a full cruelty free statement on their website, I got in touch with them. They emailed me back quickly, stating the following about Nailkind’s cruelty free policy:
“I can confirm the brand is cruelty free, does not work with third party suppliers that test on animals and is not sold in countries where animal testing is required by law
“Please do let us know if you need any further information
“All the best, Lori”
Nailkind confirmed that they do not conduct animal testing themselves, do not work with third parties that conduct animal testing, and refuse to sell in countries where animal testing is required by law. We can therefore be confident that Nailkind are a cruelty free brand.
Are Nailkind Products Vegan?
Yes, according to their website (and their ingredients lists, which I have checked!) all Nailkind products are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Are Nailkind a Sustainable Brand?
Yes, as mentioned above Nailkind work hard to make sure their ingredients are as sustainable as possible. Nail polish inherently has to be extremely hardy, and they are usually full of toxic chemicals. Nailkind having products with up to 85% natural ingredients is a huge step in the right direction.
Nailkind packaging is still made of glass and plastic, so it would be great to see them using more sustainable materials in the future!
