Why should your nail polish be Enriched?
Healthier, Stronger, More Beautiful Nails, it's that simple.
The birth of Dr.'s REMEDY® began with a warning. Dr. Cirlincione's wife was pregnant and advised against using hair dyes, eating certain foods, and being exposed to certain chemicals. Dr. Cirlincione began to research the chemicals contained in most nail polish, which is routinely used by many pregnant women. It became obvious that formaldehyde, toluene and DBP are not only proven to be dangerous, but potentially damaging to the nail as well.
Dr. Cirlincione partnered with Dr. William Spielfogel and together they founded AdWill Labs, Inc., makers of Dr.'s REMEDY® Enriched Nail Polish. As Board Certified podiatrists, they
understood the need for a healthier, more natural nail polish. They created a formula that was enriched with naturally occurring antifungal ingredients as well as vitamins & protein, because they had years of experience with patients asking for treatment for yellow-discolored nails.
AdWill Labs, Inc. was founded in 2006. It began as an online company that soon expanded to wholesale distributing. In January of 2007, AdWill Labs, Inc., began selling directly to foot doctors at well-respected trade shows across the country. By spring of that same year, BLISS spa, signed on with Dr.'s REMEDY® adding it to its celebrity studded spa catalog with 8 worldwide locations. BLISS had never before sold nail polish.
By the end of 2007, Dr.'s REMEDY® grew its client list to over 200 doctors nationwide and dozens of high-end spas. Its retail business continues to climb as consumers begin to learn the dangers of the toxic chemicals contained in many commercial nail polishes and the benefits of choosing an enriched nail polish.
Dr.'s REMEDY® now supplies to well over 800 doctors nationwide as well as the chic Rickys NYC stores of Manhattan and Miami.
Dr.'s REMEDY® Enriched Nail Polish is the only over the counter enriched polish, created by doctors, designed to be free from the most harmful toxins.

Q: Formaldehyde is a common ingredient in commercial nail polish. Why is it used and by removing it from Dr.'s REMEDY® does the quality suffer?
A: Formaldehyde, despite having been proven to cause cancer, was added to nail polish to aid in durability and longevity. Because the 50 billion dollar beauty industry is so powerful it's kept itself unregulated for decades. In the United States, it's perfectly legal for beauty products to contain chemicals linked to cancer, learning disabilities, infertility and other chronic diseases that are on the rise (SafeCosmetics.org). When formulating Dr.'s REMEDY®, the doctor's found that by stripping Dr.'s REMEDY® Enriched Nail Polish of formaldehyde it did not sacrifice any effectiveness, quality or beauty!
Q: What's special about BASIC (basecoat), how is it different from CALMING clear (topcoat)?
A: BASIC will help the longevity of a manicure, it will help eliminate any premature chipping and add to your polish's durability. CALMING is meant to be used as a sealing top coat. It will add shine to the polish and also help prevent premature chipping.
Q: Why is it important to stress that doctors founded AdWill Labs, Inc. makers of Dr.'s REMEDY®?
A: Dr. Cirlincione and Dr. Spielfogel are Board Certified podiatrists, who understand the need for a healthier, more natural nail polish.

Q: Dr.'s REMEDY® Enriched Nail Polish is good for health conscious women, but what about children?
A: Young girls who opt to wear commercial nail polish are exposing themselves to toxic chemicals.

Choosing a healthier nail polish is a safer, smarter option.

A: Women who are pregnant should avoid DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate) because of its links to infertility and birth defects. Dr.'s REMEDY® is stripped of this toxin.
