Rescue Beauty Lounge: Eco-Friendly Manicures & Pedicures

The Rescue Beauty Lounge in New York City has earned a terrific reputation for unparalleled aesthetics and cleanliness among nail salons. Combined with luxurious service, the Rescue Beauty Lounge (RBL) has focused on developing eco-friendly products that will appeal to the new style of consumer ethics. When you drop in for your next manicure or pedicure, be sure to pick up a few colors from one of the new lines of RBL nail polish.

Remember that all Rescue Beauty nail polish conforms to the essential five freedoms:

> No formaldehyde resin

> No dibutyl phthalate (DBP)

> No toluene

> No animal testing

It turns out that making nail polish that is entirely free of the above five items is no easy matter. It is a rigorous process that owner and founder Ji Baek claims nearly caused several lab technicians to quit their jobs before finding just the right concoction that could bear the Rescue name, but it was worth the nearly two years of trials and tribulations. The RBL nail polish is created with resin and high molecular weight polymers to form a long wearing polish that is flexible, durable and has a high shine.

Both Rescue Lounge locations feature ethical products and great service in scrupulously clean facilities. The goal of the RBL was to create a space that could provide great service at a much better rate than expensive health spa prices. Here is the RBL promise to all its clientele:

"No matter which Rescue Beauty Lounge you visit, you will discover it's kept to hospital standards of cleanliness. Hand sanitizer for everyone, surgical gloves for all technicians, individual porcelain sinks at every nail station, no whirlpools! All metal implements are sterilized in auto clave, all non-metal implements are discarded after each use. Not one buffing file is ever re-used or shared."

As founder Ji Baek says "All my fellow germ-o-phobes will feel right at home!" You can now order online or find fun conversations on Ji's blog and Facebook page.
