In a bid to make their nail colour as healthy as possible Mavala polishes are 5-free, having been produced without the need for formaldehydes, toluene, camphor, cellophane, parabens, heavy metals or any animal derived ingredients – this makes them a great cleaner alternative to conventional polish.
The Mavala range includes nails treatments, hand and foot products and make-up. I dont use any of these however so cant comment on their contents and effectiveness, however the pièce de résistance for me are the nail polishes – over 200 of them! I recently wrote about one of my current loves, ELLE (pictured left) and included the Showtime Angels in my Christmas Gift Countdown last year.
The polish is housed in handy and instantly recognisable 5ml bottles. A perfect size to keep in a kit, plus you have less chance of them drying out or going sticky before you use them up as the quantity it less – a real bonus if you don’t use polish on a regular basis.
Half a century of production has made Mavala a world leader in natural nail care. Available in over 80 countries, the Swiss company was created in 1958 by Madelaine Van Landeghem (do you like what I did there?) and was introduced to the UK in 1959. Fast forward 50 years and the company have a firm foothold in the market with the line available in department stores, beauty salons and pharmacies nationwide.
