In modern day’s fashion in New York City, people are tired of all these chemical skin care products. They have realized that these chemicals are harming their skin as well as degrading the environment. So a new concept of using organic products for skin care has been developed for the last few years. So now for skin care, people prefer to have organic products instead of chemical ones.
What is Organic Manicure & Pedicure?
You can call Organic Manicure and Pedicure “eco-friendly Manicure and Pedicure” or Simply “Green Manicure and Pedicure” as it uses all organic and natural products which do not have any adverse or harmful effect on human body as well as the environment. It is a complete treatment of your hand and feet without using any chemicals that are toxic to your skin and the environment.
There are several types of Organic Manicure & Pedicure treatments available in New York city spas and nail salons, but not all of those are 100% organic. Sometimes a spa terms a treatment organic by applying only one organic product while others are not. Organic olive oil manicure and pedicure, Purissima Organic Manicure and Pedicure and Organic Chocolate Manicure and Pedicure etc. are some good examples of 100% organic mani/pedi treatments.
Adverse effect of Chemical Manicure and Pedicure products
Organic Manicure and Pedicure is not a very old term in skin care. Most of the manicure and pedicure products such as nail polish, cuticle softener, shiners etc. are made from chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene and dibutayl phthalate. These chemicals damage our skin and nail bed both internally and externally. Though the instant beauty effect of these chemical products attract us with the shiny and elegant look, but the future effects are not so good. Sometimes these may also lead to skin cancer and permanent nail damage.
The production processes of these products release many environmental degrading ingredients. In some countries these products and the production of these products have been banned by the government for their adverse effect on human body and environment.
Organic Olive oil Manicure and Pedicure
Organic Olive oil Manicure and Pedicure is the most popular nail care treatment in organic category. For thousands of years, people are using Olive oil for skin care purposes. Olive oil contains many components that are useful for skin, hair and obviously for nail health. It improves the moisture condition of the skin and protects nails from becoming weak and brittle. The Antioxidant present in the olive oil fights against the free radicals and retards the aging effects. Vitamin E in the olive oil gives the nails a glowing and healthy look. Both men and women can have this Organic Olive oil Manicure and Pedicure treatment.
Purissima Organic Manicure and Pedicure
Another Type of Manicure and Pedicure treatment, which now is a new craze to the New Yorkers, is Purissima Organic Manicure and Pedicure treatment. It is an ultimate care for your hand and feet that uses a package of herbal products with the medicinal effects of Aromatherapy and Phototherapy to improve the moisture condition of hand and feet. The products used in this treatment contain all necessary natural nutrients that give your hand and feet skin glowing and natural replenished look. This treatment is a perfect choice for those who have got sensitive skin type and allergies to chemical products.

Natural oils extracted from plants are used to give you healthy hand and feet that maintain the inner balance and calming effect on your overall mood by relaxing your hand and feet from a regular hard working life.
Organic Chocolate Manicure and Pedicure
Chocolate extracts are good for nails. In Organic Chocolate Manicure and pedicure, Chocolate scrub is used to exfoliate the skin pores of the hand and feet. Thus, it gives your hand and feet a glowing effect. Natural salt, specially sea salt and Epsom salt bath are used to soften the cuticles. Then hand and feet are soaked in warm water bath with a few drops of chocolate extracts. A chocolate scrub massage is applied over the body of the hand and the feet to polish the skin. The aroma of the chocolate helps you to calm your mind simultaneously.
In Organic Manicure & Pedicure treatment, all the products including the moisturizer should be organic. Before you go for an Organic Manicure and Pedicure, take a thorough knowledge of the procedure and the products used in the treatment from your nail salon. Not every salon in New York City provides proper Organic Manicure and Pedicure service. So first be sure about that.

I had an organic manicure for the first time 3 weeks ago. It really looked great, I couldn't believe how easy it was, took less time than ever. The entire procedure was was so simple, not smell, no harsh chemicals, dries in just a few minutes. It's rather costly, 45 for the 1st time, then, 35 for a fill....SOHO in Chesterfield, Judy does a great job....

This is news for me too, I have never heard about it. But it sounds like a great alternative that I would definitely try when it becomes available here. Thanks for the information, voted up, interesting

Very interesting. I haven't seen these offered around here but I will definitely keep my eye out for them - I'd much rather prefer organic over the chemicals
