The “going green” initiative is an important, environmentally healthy approach that nail salons across the country have now begun to embrace. This is great news for the people who work and patron nail salons. In 2007, Time Magazine named nail salon work among the worst jobs in the United States due to the amount of toxic chemicals they are exposed to in the workplace. Currently, the U.S. cosmetic industry sells products that are not tested for safety, and manufacturers use known toxins in products they know are unsafe. In truth, only 11 percent of the 12, 500 chemicals used in cosmetic products have been tested for your safety. Despite all this, we spend about $6 Billion per year on salon products and treatments. Revive Nails also embraces the healthier approach to nail care through organic alternatives in nail and skin care. These practices help you and their employees live a little healthier every time you visit!
Revive Nails located on the border of Wicker Park and Noble Square in Chicago Illinois, has employed innovative “green” ways to meet the demands of an environmentally, and health conscious clientele. Some of the ways we help you stay healthy are:
Exceeding state requirements for sanitation and sterilization
Employ an extensive line of chemical free vegan nail polishes
Using handmade organic skin and nail products
Using beautiful reclaimed wood in our clean green salon
Ensuring staff is educated and knowledgeable about the best practices in organic nail/skin care
Green nail salons have so much more to offer than just fabulous nails. We offer you the opportunity to help us keep our Earth a healthier place. We also offer a new buffer and file with your service, that you take home, complimentary tea or wine served in clean reusable glass, tissue toe separators instead of traditional plastic ones, and a clean healthy salon experience from professionals who share your passion for a better environment.
