Karma Organic Nail Polish Remover: Does Organic Nail Polish Remover Actually Work?

IMG_2088

I have used acetone-based nail polish remover all my life.  To me, Karma Natural’s Nail Polish Remover made from soy bean oil just seemed like a foreign entity to me.  I thought, there was no way this is going to work.  Boy, was I wrong!

Let’s start from the beginning.  When I went to purchase my RMS Beauty Nail Polish, the sales person gave me this nail polish remover to remove the nail polish I had tested in the store.  I was shocked that it not only took off the nail polish, but left my nails even a little bit moisturized.

Karma Organics is an American brand that creates organic and environmentally-concious products, including nail polish and skincare.  This nail polish remover comes in three scents: unscented, tea tree oil, and lavender.  It contains only 3 ingredients: propylene carbonate, soybean oil methyl exter, and tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E).  As stated on their website, this product is non-toxic, free of petroleum ingredients, derived from farm crops, and packaged in 100% recycled glass bottles.

Sounds super good for you, but is it actually any good?  I am happy to answer, “Yes, it is!”  Dab it onto a cotton ball and let it soak for a couple seconds on each nail and the nail polish comes right off.  What I love most is that after the removal, your nails don’t look completely dry and lifeless.  Your fingernails might feel a little oily which is a feeling you might have to get used to.  I usually just wash my hands afterwards and my nails feel great.  One small con is that even though I bought the odourless one, the smell is still pungent.  I guess, you can’t expect a solvent to smell like fresh air.

VERDICT:  I love how my nails feel after using this polish remover, which is not something I usually can say.  I think I am hooked.  I can’t go back to use acetone-based nail polish removers.

    1. Yeah, it works a lot better than I expected. I bought mine from my local organic beauty store, but I was checking on their website and you can get it at some Whole Foods and also on Amazon. Hope that helps! 🙂

  1. Oh good! I love that this seems natural. I’m using a non-acetone remover right now, but who knows what’s in it? Actually, I’m looking right now, and the last ingredient is gelatin?? What the heck!
