Our Story:

By Liu,Yingchun, founder of Suncoat products:

"Back in 2001, when my then seven-year old little girl first showed interest in nail polish, I took a long, hard look at the ingredients in conventional nail polish, and was horrified to find toxic chemicals such as toluene, formaldehyde releasing ingredients, acetates, phthalate, alcohol etc. As a chemist, I knew how much potential damage these toxic chemicals could do to my innocent little girl.

So I went out to retail stores, searching for a water-based, nontoxic nail polish for my daughter. Much to my surprise however, I failed to find anything at all. There was virtually no water-based nail polish on the market.

I had no choice but to develop a water-based nail polish myself. At that point, I began dreaming of introducing a line of non-toxic, environmentally friendly nail polish products to the market for other women and young girls to enjoy.

Although I have worked as a research chemist for many years, only after I started working on water-based nail polish had I realized how difficult it was to formulate a quick drying, long-lasting water-base nail polish. The current formulation for manufacturing Suncoat water-based nail polish is the result of numerous long days in the lab, many sleepless nights in the office, in the library..."
