When the time comes to remove your nail polish, you likely turn to store-bought nail polish remover. The active ingredient in nail polish remover is typically either acetone or ethly acetate, which can be mixed with oils, color, fragrance, and vitamin E to make it more pleasant. While the ingredients in nail polish remover are generally animal-free, many of the companies that make nail polish remover test on animals, so it’s important to look for the “cruelty-free” label.

You can also buy 100% acetone from any drug store which will be very effective at removing your polish, but can be harsh on your nails.

Finally, if you prefer nail polish remover cloths, SpaRitual sells some that are distinctly labeled vegan.
