We don’t meet standards, we set them.
Our gitti formula standards are stricter than current EU regulations. We believe in the quality, performance and safety of our products, and this comes down to only using carefully selected ingredients. Our labs follow a strict “no” list of more than 3,000 harmful, aggressive or controversial ingredients. Our nail polish is 30-free, meaning we have removed 30 nail polish ingredients that have come under scrutiny for safety, irritation, or sustainability or are known to be problematic. While we are not alone in banning the most controversial ones like formaldehyde, sulphonamides, and tert-butyl hydroperoxide, some of the mainstream nail formulas available in the US still use ingredients like hydroquinone, which is banned in the EU and benzophenone, which has long-term toxicity concerns. In addition, we never use animal-derived and non-cruelty-free ingredients, as well as petrochemical-based solvents.
