What Makes Kester Black So Special? - Ethical Cruelty-Free Nail Polish

Kester Black Ethical Nailpolish is a Beauty brand like no other.  Founded by a Kiwi and now based in Australia they are proudly Australias most ethical beauty brand but What Makes Kester Black So Special?

Kester Black create nail polish that is kind to you and kind to the planet. Kester Black blends ethics and beauty in a way that redefines the industry standard. Their products are cruelty free, palm oil free and vegan – always have been, and always will be!

While no nail polish can ever be fully free of chemicals, Kester Blacks 10-Free™ formula is free from the 10 toxic chemicals commonly found in most nail polishes.

No one says it better then the brands themselves so here is a bit more about Kester Black in their own words:

We do everything we can to source and use only the highest quality ingredients. We source the majority of our raw ingredients from Europe, and use organic ingredients wherever possible. We’re also very particular when it comes to our formulations: we never use ingredients that we wouldn’t use on our mums or our daughters.

Creating is fun, but innovating is even funner! Kester Black was one of the first nail polish companies in the world to create a water-based nail polish remover. We’ve also switched our entire range of polishes over to a new water permeable, breathable formula. Why? Because we wanted to be a completely inclusive beauty company, and with our new water permeable polishes, it means our Muslim sisters can now wear our polish too. We’re always moving forward, always improving. And that’s innovation!



10-Free™ formula
All of our nail polishes are 10-Free™ which means we strip out ten of the nastiest nasties that are commonly found in standard polishes. While no nail polish can ever be fully free of chemicals, Kester Black polish contains zero formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, phthalates, ethyl tosylamide, triphenyl phosphate or animal derived or animal tested ingredients. Trust us when we say you’re far better off without any of this junk on your hands or in your bathroom cabinet.

Water permeable polishes
Our water permeable formulation is a major improvement on any existing breathable nail polish products already on the market. Once applied to nails, our water permeable formula allows water penetration on a molecular level. And because of the breathability and water permeability of our nail polishes, our Muslim sisters can proudly wear our nail polish too.

Our new water permeable formula has in no way compromised our professional standards, ethics and company values. It’s just made our range more awesome.

Water-based removers
The smell of those toxic polish removers has us gagged, and not in a good way. Our water based nail polish remover is scented with white peach, and is packed full of aloe vera and Vitamin E, making this little remover positively Powerade for your nails. Both acetone and acetate free, this product is non-flammable and has a lengthened evaporation period (for those of us who forget to put lids on things).
