Stainless steel and metal tools, after each use, are cleaned by scrubbing with hot water and antibacterial soap to remove all leftover debris. After patting dry, implements are placed inside of a medical-grade autoclave, which uses pressurized heat and steam to clean and sterilize them. All tools are then sealed inside a single-use sterilization pouch for your safety. In addition to an EPA certified hospital-grade liquid disinfectant on-hand as another method of disinfection for tables and chairs. Whether you get your nails done at Cure or elsewhere, you always have the right to ask how the salon disinfects their implements!
· Do you reuse all your tools?
Absolutely NOT! Here at Chacha Feet we are committed to providing the most sanitary manicure and pedicure experience possible to each and every client. You'll find the use of both reusable implements, such as metal foot files, cuticle nippers, nail clippers, and nail art brushes. In addition to disposable, or single-use, tools and items, such as nail files, wooden sticks, toe separators, flip flops, and clean up brushes.
· What makes Chacha Feet “non-toxic”?
By being a non-toxic business , we pledge that all products used on clients or sold on our shelves will be free from ingredients that have been found to lead to toxic responses in humans. These ingredients include: phthalates, parabens, petroleum, asbestos, lead acetate, and coal tar.
Additionally, all nail care products featured during studio services or sold at retail will be cruelty-free, meaning they were not tested on animals at any point during the production process. One of our preferred brands of choice OOO polish is lead bunny certified!
Unfortunately, there are some chemicals that are necessary in the manicuring process, as they help with service efficacy. Both our gel and regular polishes are 7-Free at minimum. Meaning they are without the following harmful ingredients known to cause serious health problems: toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, and TPHP.
