Conforms to ASTM D4236
Safe and Non-Toxic
SuncoatGirl nail polishes comply with Health Canada and US FDA cosmetics regulations.
Extra step has also been taken to ensure product safety for children: SuncoatGirl natural nail polish colors have been evaluated by board-certified toxicologist (Diplomate, American Board of Toxicology), at a US FDA recommended consumer product safety lab.
The result: SuncoatGirl nail polish conforms to the health requirements of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard D4236 and meet the criteria defined in the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Regulations 16 CFR 1500.14 (described in the Federal Register Announcement 57:197 pp. 46626-46674, dated Friday, October 9, 1992).
WHAT MAKES THE CONVENTIONAL LIQUID EYELINERS?
Synthetic plastics, such as acrylic copolymer and PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone polymer), are found in many popular brand liquid eyeliners. They are used mainly as the binding agent/film former in liquid eyeliner to glue pigments and fillers together so the eyeliner stays on your eyes. These synthetic plastics are derived from petrochemicals; contain residual monomers (the starting materials for producing plastics, namely acrylic monomers, vinyl pyrrolidone monomer and vinyl acetate monomer) that are not only toxic, but also reactive.
Synthetic dyes, glycol, alcohol and chemical preservatives are also used in conventional liquid eyeliner formulations.
SUNCOAT PIONEERS SUGAR-BASED TECHNOLOGY
Suncoat has pioneered an innovative sugar-based technology for cosmetics and hair styling products, using natural multi-sugar biopolymer instead of synthetic chemicals.
For decades, synthetic plastics, typically PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone polymer), acrylic copolymer, VA (vinyl acetate) polymer, have been widely used in color cosmetics, hair styling products and skin care products. They can be found even in many so-called natural products. These synthetic plastics are derived from petrochemicals, so not the best choice to enhance our natural beauty and to protect our environment.
Suncoat has introduced a unique sugar-based technology to remove these synthetic plastics. In Suncoat natural mascara, eyeliner and hair styling products, a very unique sugar-based biopolymer (polysaccharides) is used in place of synthetic polymers. This sugar-based biopolymer is derived from natural renewable resources, readily biodegradable and most importantly delivers superior performance without harming our systems and the environment.
