SNS's Ingredients Explained: Our Commitment to Healthy, Beautiful Nails

Reading the ingredient list on your products and cosmetics can seem complicated and many of us may not actually know what those words even mean. Unfortunately, many of the nail products you have at home may contain harmful ingredients and toxic chemicals that can cause an array of health issues, especially with prolonged use. That's why it's so important you know what's in your products and what you're actually putting on your body. The good news is, SNS believes health is as equally important as beauty, and our mission has led us to create an innovative dip powder system, SNS Nutri-Plus™, which makes nails not only beautiful but stronger and healthier with each and every application.


Healthy Vitamins & Nutrients We Put In

The SNS dip powder system, designed for optimum nail health includes powder, bases, and sealers containing carefully selected ingredients that are known to nourish the nail bed and promote healthy growth and resilience. These are some of the vitamins and minerals that we put into our products. 


  • Vitamin A

This nutrient-rich antioxidant repels bacteria while also protecting the nail from UV damage.

  • Vitamin E

This important vitamin protects the nail and neutralizes free radicals which can damage cells and disrupt growth. 

  • Vitamin B5

A powerful nutrient that regenerates the nail bed, strengthening tissue and making it more elastic while also protecting it. 

  • Vitamin D3

This essential vitamin boosts elasticity and stimulates collagen production while also helping to replenish healthy cells and maintain hydration. 

  • Calcium and Zinc

These minerals are crucial for cell regeneration and tissues strength, protecting cell health, while also facilitating the growth and strength of nail proteins. 


What We Keep Out

The “toxic trio,” or the big three - formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DPB) are toxic chemicals commonly found in many nail products and cosmetics. Along with the big three, there are many other harmful ingredients hiding in common nail products. With prolonged use, these ingredients can have harmful effects including allergic reactions, damage to the reproductive system, hormonal dysfunction, birth defects, and other negative implications on the body. SNS is committed to ensuring their products are not only vegan, non-allergenic, and not tested on animals, but that they don’t contain any of the toxic trio, nor any of the other various toxic chemicals often found in other nail products. These are some common toxic ingredients found in many nail polishes and cosmetics, but not in SNS products.


  • Formaldehyde
  • Toluene

  • Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)

  • Parabens

  • Lead

  • Synthetic Sulfates

  • Triethanolamine

  • Triphenylphosphate (TPHP)

  • Xylene

  • Ethyl Tosylamide
