Do you ever catch a whiff of polish while you’re painting your nails and wonder what kind of chemicals you’re putting on your body? At Karma Organic Spa, there’s no need to worry about it.
Karma Organic Spa is the only certified organic salon in the country. After nine years of business in Ridgewood and a successful online shop of natural beauty products, owner Nausil Zaheer stumbled across a second location in Englewood that was too fantastic to pass up.
“Since we do so much shipping, I was looking for a warehouse,” he explained. “I came down to look at this place and I said ‘Oh my god, this is so beautiful. I’m moving.’ And I’m so glad I did.”
So glad, that he’s even looking into opening a third location in New York, near the Beacon Theatre on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The second location is only minutes away from Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and has become a place for cancer patients, pregnant women and people with allergies to be pampered since its opening six months ago.
After years of working as a celebrity manicurist, Nausil saw the need for a non-toxic nail salon.
“Other salons still do shellac or gel on the sides, when they take it off with the acetone the smell stays in the building,” he told OMJ. “It’s not helpful for my employees to breathe it in for 10 hours everyday. If someone has gel, we tell them to get it removed somewhere and come back.”
If no gel manicures sounds like a deal-breaker, Nausil is confident that Karma will win you over. The spa uses more than 100 nail polish colors, including gloss, matte, neon and glow in the dark options. Manicures can last for 10 days.
Nausil’s own line of vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic polishes that are made without toluene, formaldehyde and DBP. Each bottle of nail polish is $9.99 and all ingredients are clearly listed. The Karma Naturals line also includes remover and remover wipes, skincare products and essential oils.
Beyond the peace of mind that using natural products creates, they’re also super convenient for busy people who have to find time to do their nails on the go.
“You can use them on a plane because there’s no smell to it,” Nausil said of his new nail polish remover wipes, which contain ingredients that pass airline inspections.
