Suncoat is dawning a revolution for all things nails, giving the world a natural, wholesome way to wear the colours they love with a collection of water-based nail polish bursting with lots of attitude and none of the bad stuff. No formaldehyde, toluene, acetates, phthalate or alcohol – just bold, brazen colour and happy consciouce.
Made from equal parts nature’s finest, innovative science and a dash of mother’s love, Suncoat was founded by polymer and organic chemist Yingchun Liu–Ying for short—when her daughters wanted to paint their nails up pretty. Put off by all the poison in the typical bottle of nail polish, Ying took her scientific smarts to task and developed the first ever non-toxic, natural formula that’s just as effective and quick drying as the smelly stuff, but great for nails, the world and the environment.
Ying holds a BSc degree in polymer chemistry and MSc degree in organic chemistry. Ying was also a Ph.D candidate at University of Waterloo, Canada, in organic/biopolymer chemistry during 1993-1995. Before starting Suncoat, Ying worked as a Formulation Chemist, Senior Coatings Chemist and Technical Director for industrial coatings and polymer resins manufacturers in Canada for many years.
Suncoat is the pioneer in non-toxic nail polish, blazing the trail of natural beauty, fusing nature with technology to create innovative products founded on the balance of vegan, mineral-based ingredients and water, one of the principal components of our bodies. By putting nature back into nail polish, we’re motivating people to do the same in other aspects of their lives, thus inspiring a little more harmony back into the world.
We proudly formulate and manufacture ALL our products at our own facility in Guelph, Ontario, Canada!
