*To find a polish without Ethyl Acetate you need a water based polish that does not stay on your nails for very long. Polishes without Ethyl Acetate are not salon quality. This ingredient does have bad side effects but because it is a solvent it evaporates quite quickly and does not stay on the nail. As Ethyl Acetate evaporates from nail polish, the nail polish goes from liquid to dry.
**To receive Australian Made accreditation these requirements must be met:
(a) the goods have been substantially transformed in the country represented by the logo as the country of origin of the goods; and
(b) the prescribed percentage of the cost of producing or manufacturing the goods as worked out under section 256 is attributable to production or manufacturing processes that happened in that country.
Most of the Kester Black ingredients are from Australia and the polish is mixed and filled here with wages above the minimum wage. The bottles are printed here and all the packaging is made in Australia. The only two things from overseas are the glass bottles and the base.
