I love Kester Black's product and words so much I feel drawn to share it all with you. An Australian with social and environmental principals so strong that she created a range of nail polish and soap products to meet them and provide herself (and us) with "trend driven cosmetics that are ethically driven." Read her words and more importantly get your hands on her products. Fabulous!
"Being an ethical consumer, I believe in the importance of moral purchasing decisions. That is why when I began researching environmentally friendly nail polish and soap brands, I was concerned by the lack of cruelty free and carbon neutral options available. While I did find a few Green alternatives, I was uninspired by the limited selection of colours and frangrances.
It was then that I decided that rather than accepting this lack of choice, I would seek to fulfil my own needs, and those of the many other Australian consumers who are both morally and style conscious. I resolved to create an all-Australian brand that provided professional quality products which did not compromise my social and environmental principles.
