Anise has partnered with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the Breast Cancer Fund to help curb the manufacture and distribution of unsafe cosmetics. We have pledged not to use chemicals that are known or suspected of causing cancer, birth defects or other serious health problems for women. Other leading nail color and treatment brands use these cancer-causing toxic chemical ingredients, including formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate. We never have and never will use such chemicals. To us, the word “toxic” means only one thing. It is bad for a woman’s health.
At Anise we don’t use legal but questionable ingredients that can put a woman’s health at risk. We strongly believe in being proactive and a leader by applying a precautionary principle to always replace suspect ingredients with safer alternatives. We hope that other nail care brands will begin to follow our approach.
