                      Yes, as you can see from the ingredients list above our polishes contain n- butyl alcohol, diacetone alcohol and isopropyl alcohol. However, please note that these alcohols are not the same as alcohols such as ethanol found in alcoholic beverages i.e.  Beers, wines, spirits etc. The alcohols we use are not derived from grapes and do not cause intoxication. The alcohols present in LENA nail polishes are of a chemical nature and are therefore not prohibited in Islam. We do not use any haram ingredients.

                        LENA nail polishes have been tested for water permeability for up to 2 coats. We recommend you rub your nails thoroughly to allow maximum permeability of water to reach the nail bed. Do not apply more than 2 coats (including Top & Base) if you plan to make wudhu or ablution. 

                        What makes LENA nail polishes breathable? Are they healthier for my nails than traditional nail polish?

                          We use a special polymer that allows moisture to pass through to the nail bed allowing your nails to breathe. Say ‘goodbye’ to discoloured nails due to deprivation of oxygen.

                          Do LENA nail polishes contain harmful chemicals found in traditional nail polishes?

                                  We founded the brand LENA to cater to all the people who found that breathable nail polishes were much more expensive than traditional polishes. We wanted to bring the price of breathable nail polish in line with traditional polish. We as an online retailer have the opportunity to pass the savings on to our customer.  We have done what we set out to achieve without compromising on the quality of our nail polish. Now you can wear breathable nail polish without breaking the bank.
