(Oil-Free) Cuticle Balsam's ingredients will reach the roots of the nails where it will bring moisture and it will keep it there. This creates a perfect environment for the nail to grow out beautifully and strong. The cuticles are extremely thin skin so they can not hold a lot of the necessary Natural Moisturizing Factors. At the same time, more than any other part of the skin, the cuticles are attacked by dehydrating-factors like water, wind, heating or air conditioning flow in the car!TRIND Cuticle Balsam is guaranteed to be completely oil free. You may use nail polish or TRIND Natural Nail Repair strengthener immediately following this balsam application. After all, don't you want to show off these great nails you've got now?!
