The Organic Nail Lounge, in Arlington Heights, features an alternative to traditional nail salons by offering safer, more natural products. “The products we use are free of toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and DBP (dibutyl phthalate),” says owner Cindy Vo. “We also offer organic scrubs and all-natural essential oils.”
For manicures and pedicures, Vo says she uses Lotus Touch organic naturals, which contain no paraben preservatives, propylene glycol or nut oils, which may trigger allergic reactions. “Our priority is to provide the safest and cleanest environment to each of our clients,” she says. Vo sterilizes all instruments with an autoclave, the same equipment used by surgeons, and disposes of all files and buffers after each use.
