Is a Nano Nail Enamel On the Horizon?

July 14, 2008

NaturalNano, Inc., a Rochester, NY developer of advanced nanomaterials and extended release nanotechnologies, has entered into an exclusive development and testing agreement with global cosmetics supplier Fiabila, S.A. to explore the use of halloysite natural tubes (HNT) in nail polish and other nail care products. France-based Fiabila is a leading private label manufacturers of nail enamels.

HNTs are naturally occurring, non-toxic and have a hollow tube structure unique to halloysite clay. In addition to developing processes to enhance Fiabila’s core products, NaturalNano is exploring the creation of longer-lasting and more brightly colored nail polish through its proprietary extended release technology, which incorporates filled HNTs. NaturalNano’s patented technology enables the filling of the environmentally friendly hollow tubes with a variety of additives that can be released slowly over time, extending the life and effectiveness of a wide variety of consumer-oriented products.
