3 Free

I’ve just come home with a bottle of nail varnish by Butter London. Were I cashed up I would have chosen at least five from their range of vibrant colours. The beauty of this nail varnish, apart from its fabulous shade of candy pink, is that is ‘3-Free’. That means that it does not contain the chemicals formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). The latter two ingredients are flagged as carcinogenic by the Cosmetic Safety Database.
I have searched far and wide for this nail varnish. The company have a USA website. I found it in a health food shop in Bondi Junction. It is ironic that Butter London nail varnish was nowhere to be found in London.
