Soytone is a natural nail polish remover. It does not contain petroleum, acetone, acetate or ethyl lactate.
Soytone™ (Natural Nail Polish Remover) is an earth friendly product. It is naturally derived from farm crops and does not contain any petroleum ingredients. Not only moistens your nails and cuticles, it is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. It is also readily biodegradable.
Soytone™ (Polish Remover) works for conventional nail polish. It is an excellent replacement for traditional chemical nail polish remover including acetone based polish remover or acetate based polish remover (so-called acetone-free remover). Unlike Acetone, Soytone™ (Polish Remover) will not dry nails. Instead, many people find it moisturizing / hydrating.
Ingredients: Dimethyl Glutarate, Dimethyl Adipate, Dimethyl Succinate, Methyl Oleate/ Palmitate/Linoleate/Stearate *Trideceth-8, Aqua Uniqueness
No Chemical Fumes: Traditional chemical nail polish remover is highly volatile, and rapidly evaporates into the air, generating chemical fumes and polluting the air we breath. Soytone™ (Polish Remover) will stay on nails, does not evaporate into the air, and can be easily washed off with water. Since it is readily biodegradable, it will do no harm to the environment.

“No Acetone”, “No Acetate” and “No Ethyl Lactate” and Environmental laws:
The Environmental Protection Agency defines a hazardous waste as a toxic, corrosive or flammable substance that could harm our health or the environment. Whether it is fresh or spent, acetone is flammable and therefore a form of hazardous waste. When working with acetone, it is important to know how to store it, how to work with it safely and how to discard it properly.
Working with Acetone
In laboratories and manufacturing, acetone is used to extract fat, resins and waxes. Because acetone washes away any trace of oils and contaminants, laboratory glassware is often given a rinse of acetone after the glassware is cleaned. At home, acetone is found in nail polish removers. When working with acetone, you should wear gloves to prevent the liquid from contacting your skin. When removing nail polish, wear a glove on the hand that is holding the acetone-soaked cotton ball. Acetone should be used under a fume hood or in a well-ventilated area.
Dangers of Acetone
Acetone is highly flammable whether it is fresh out of the bottle or has been used. The liquid irritates skin and can negatively affect the reproductive system. Breathing the fumes of acetone can give you a headache, make you feel nauseated and irritate your eyes, nose and throat. Acetone is not a known carcinogen.
Within the workplace, acetone should be stored in a fireproof cabinet. Collect used acetone in an empty acetone bottle labeled "Hazardous Waste -- Acetone" or with hazardous waste labels provided by your disposal company. Once the bottle is full, it should be disposed of or recycled through a hazardous waste facility. At home, leftover nail polish remover must be disposed of at a hazardous waste facility. Allow acetone left on cotton balls to evaporate in a well-ventilated area before the cotton balls are discarded. Acetone should never be poured down the drain. On the other hand, you can pour down Soytone into the Drain. Soytone is not a hazardous or toxic or flammable material within the meaning of EPA. It is fully compliant with Californian laws.
