What's in Hanami Cosmetics

Plant & Mineral Based Ingredients

Glance your peepers over our labels and you'll notice that Hanani are big fans of coconut, shea, jojoba, castor oil, grapeseed, mineral colours and a heap of natural ingredients that you may keep stashed in your kitchen cabinet at home, yep we weren't joking about this 'natural ingredients' bizo! But there may also be some tongue twisters on there that aren't as recognisable, here's where we source them from:

  • Glycerin – Soy or Maze. NOP certified
  • Cetearyl Glucoside – Corn or Coconut 
  • Cetearyl / Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol – Coconut & Lye
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride – Coconut

What you WON'T find in Hanami Cosmetics

get ready for some big scary words.....

Nano Particles

Nano particles are small particles with all three dimensions less than 100 nanometres (.1 micron), they're able to penetrate the skin’s surface layers and potentially cause some serious damage while they do it. Rest assured, HANAMI Cosmetics do not contain any ingredient with a particle size less than .1 micron. Phew!

SLS or SLES

Cheap foaming agents, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are chucked in many beauty products (fun fact: it's also widely used in industrial cleaning agents such as engine degreaser) Guess what? You WON'T be finding these in any HANAMI product.

Parabens 

Gross endocrine disruptors, butylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, and ethylparaben, can mimic oestrogen in the body which may be linked to increasing the risk of breast cancer. We don't use these, we're doing our best to look after your beautiful lady parts!

Hanami Cosmetics Nail Polish is Ten Free

HANAMI is "cosmetics with a conscience" and this includes our polishes too. While nail polish cannot be made entirely with organic and natural ingredients (hopefully sometime soon though!) we have done our best - and ensure that our polishes are safer for you by using a 'Ten Free' formula. What the heck does this mean? Well, most commercial nail brands contain toulene, formaldehyde, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, ethyl tosylamide and xylene, parabens, phthalates and benzophenone (ugh!) - all of which are nastily toxic to both our health and to the environment on a production level. 

A note about palm oil: whilst ALL of our cosmetic products (lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, BB creams, lipbalms and makeup remover) are 100% palm oil free, sadly it's not yet possible to manufacture a nail polish without palm oil derivatives required to make a key ingredient (Stearalkonium Bentonite) We are not able to claim that Hanami polishes are palm oil free, however I assure you we are working hard to find a way around this, and hope to bring you a completely PO free nail polish range ASAP. We can confirm that the derivative used to make this ingredient is RSPO approved.
