Breathable nail polish, also known as "oxygen permeable" or "water permeable" nail polish, is a type of nail polish that allows water and air to pass through it. This is in contrast to traditional nail polish, which creates a barrier on the nails that can trap moisture and chemicals.
Here are some benefits of breathable nail polish:
- Better nail health: Breathable nail polish allows the nails to "breathe," which can help prevent fungal and bacterial infections. It can also reduce the risk of damage to the nails from exposure to chemicals and moisture.
- Better for sensitive skin: Many traditional nail polishes contain harsh chemicals and fragrances that can irritate the skin. Breathable nail polishes are often formulated without these ingredients and can be more suitable for people with sensitive skin.
- Longer lasting: Breathable nail polishes often last longer than traditional polishes because they don't peel or chip as easily.
- Halal/Islamic compliant: Breathable nail polishes are halal compliant, as it allows for the nails to breath and does not cover the nails completely which is a requirement in Islamic laws.
- Better for the environment: Many breathable nail polishes are water-based and free of harsh chemicals, making them more environmentally friendly than traditional polishes.
