Made by PeaceKeeper Cause-MeticsIngredients: butyl acetate, ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose, acetyl tributyl-citrate, adipic acid/neopentyl,glycol/trimellitic anhydride copolymer,isopropyl alcohol,stearalkonium bentonite, acrylates copolymer, styrene/acrylates copolymer, benzophenone-1, may contain (+/-): titanium dioxide – is the natural occurring oxide of titanium, a substance mined from the earth. the website skin deep, which measures toxicity in make-up, indicates that titanium dioxide has "little absorption and no adverse health effects". titanium dioxide can be found in toothpastes and other food substances as well. peacekeeper would like to see more concrete research as data gaps remain, titanium dioxide is rated very safe by all accounts though working with the substance can cause lung and respiratory problems. # may contain (+/-): iron oxide- consist of sixteen known compounds of either oxides or hydroxides and oxidehydroxides. iron oxide yields pigments which are used in cosmetics. they are considered non-toxic. # may contain (+/-): ferric ferrocyanide- a natural and non-toxic nail paint pigment. # may contain (+/-): mica - which is a silicate mineral from the earth and whose name comes from the latin word micare, which means "shine". mica use dates back way back to pre-historic times with the earliest use found in paleolithic cave paintings. # may contain (+/-): carmine - (the creepy crawly of our make-up line) is a pigment derived from carminic acid from the scales of certain insects such as the cochineal. vegans and folks not turned on by bugs should not use the products we make with carmine. carmine is the only red color alternative to synthetic fd&c coloring, so we feel it is the better choice. # may contain (+/-): argan oil - indigenous argan oil is rich in amino acids and nurtures nails. we use oil that is fair trade.
