Cuticle & Nail Serum
Dry and cracked cuticles may be a sign of damage from the use of harsh fingernail polish and polish remover, and also poor nourishment and vitamin/mineral deficiency. Our Herbal Cuticle Serum is based on wild-harvested silica-rich Horsetail and Stinging Nettle herbs known to aid in strengthening of nails. The serum is designed to soften frequently damaged skin on hands, as well as to effectively moisturize the cuticles and brittle nails. Proper cuticle care is equally essential to fingernail health as it is to toenail health; people who often wash and sterilize their hands will especially benefit from this ultra-soft, silica-rich Herbal Cuticle Serum.
