Shel PinkShel Pink, Lifestyle Futurist, SpaRitual, and SlowBeauty.com Founder: Shel captured the attention of the spa industry when she founded SpaRitual in 2004, launching a brand that fuses the mind, body, and spirit connection with healing spa traditions.

Keeping in mind the ideals of conscious beauty and sustainability issues, Shel has led the brand developing a collection of eco-friendly products. All SpaRitual body products are vegan, made of natural formulations and never use synthetic dyes or parabens.

SpaRitual Manicure & Pedicure Essentials are also free of toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor and DBP. The vegan Nail Lacquer Collection is also vegan and is 5-free, meaning that they don't include camphor. Today, Shel sees the green movement transitioning towards a discussion of slow ideals in direct response to a lifestyle that has become too fast.

Today Shel has contributed as an expert to such publications as Women's Health, Real Simple, Self and Woman's Day. She is a member of Step Up and has spoken at the Natural Health Wellness Weekend and Serious Business Conference.

What are some natural ways to help take care of your nails?

Shel Pink, Lifestyle Futurist, joins HER Radio to discuss natural nail care and why it's so important for your nail health.
