Fresh Therapies Eden Natural Nail Polish Remover

Fresh Therapies Eden Natural Nail Polish Remover was a Twitter discovery and on my “To Try" list.  When I found out they would be exhibiting at The Allergy & Free From Show I knew I would be buying a bottle.

Your average nail polish remover is not the nicest of products when it comes to ingredients.  There are acetone free removers on the market but have you considered what else may be lurking in your polish remover?  To give you an example, Superdrug Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover pads contain Alchol Denat, Lanolin, Parfum, PEG-75, Potassium Sorbate.


Eden Polish Remover is different because it is free from alcohol, acetate, toluene and acetone.  It is made using non toxic, non carcinogenic, biodegradable food and plant grade ingredients.  This remover is suitable for children, pregnant women and those undergoing treatment for illness.  It has not been tested on animals, is suitable for Vegans and carries the BUAV Leaping Bunny logo.  Now that’s impressive.  It will work on water based and traditional nail polishes but unfortunately is not suitable for gel polishes (Gelish, Shellac & Acrylic nails).

Here I am meeting the lovely Nicola Dickinson who created the product. That's me on the right and Nicola on the left.  First time I've revealed my identity on my blog, not sure about the silly face I am making!.


Right enough of the technical stuff let’s move onto my review.  The first thing you notice when using this remover is you don’t have to wear a gas mask.  There is very little fragrance just a hint of lime.  You still use the remover in the traditional way by applying to a cotton pad, hold the pad on to the nail, allow a few seconds for the polish to soften, then wipe away.  Any remover left behind can either be washed away or massage into the nail and cuticles. Since the ingredients are natural it does not damage the nail and acts as a nourishing treatment.  I find the product disappears quickly which is better than other removers that leave a greasy residue.  I have found that one coat of polish removes very easily but if you are wearing two coats or glitter polish you need to work a little harder at removing.  Personally, other removers I have used struggle to remove glitter so I was expecting the same.  The bonus with this product is you know that using extra remover is doing you no harm due to the lovely ingredients.

Here is a video of me removing nail polish. I used 2/3 coats.  On right hand is Boots Natural Collection Lunar Haze and on left same brand but in Twinkleberry (a glitter polish).



Overall, this is an impressive product which definitely deserved to win Gold at the FreeFrom Skincare Awards.  You can purchase Fresh Therapies Natural Nail Polish Remover direct from the website (link)Have you considered the ingredients in your nail polish remover? Will you be switching to a natural remover?

  3. I've been looking for something like this as I was very aware of how damaging and drying acetone remover was. I'll certainly be giving it a go! Thanks for the review!

  4. Oh this looks lovely - I really don't like nail polish remover as it makes me nails feel really dry and greasy at the same time, so this is definitely something I need to try - thank you for sharing! x

    1. I know what you mean about greasy feeling but this does not have that, it sinks into your nail and skin very easily and quickly :)

  5. You've sold me on this. I saw it at an Australian stockist and will definitely be trying this out in the future. It sounds so good, and the bottle looks so pretty too! It looks like a perfume bottle.

    1. I'm impressed, I have found some brands of polish do come off quicker than others but overall I am just happy to know it's a safe product. I agree with you about the packaging :)
