Coconut Oil is everyone's favorite oil, for good reason. This thick protective oil is super moisturizing and nourishing for skin, nails and cuticles. Coconut Oil has 3 medium-chain fatty acids: lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. Lauric acid works against bacteria, fungus and viruses, and important quality when all of us are avoiding contracting a difficult to treat and disfiguring nail fungus.
VEGETABLE LECITHIN helps the other ingredients stay mixed and to stick on your nail.
LANOLIN WAX is a nail conditioner and protector, it also helps the thinner oils stay put so they can do their work. It is derived from Sheep's wool during the wool gathering process. The sheep are not killed to do this.
EMU OIL is a thick oil from Emu Birds. It is highly prized for its conditioning abilities and I use it only in products where I feel it will actually solve a difficult human problem. However, it makes this product not suitable for vegans.
SILK PROTEIN or Silk Peptides are easily absorbed by nails, hair and skin because of their microscopic size and may help strengthen nails weak with fungus.
MYRRH ESSENTIAL OIL is one of the go-to-oils to strengthen nails and prevent splitting and cracking.
SEABUCKTHORN OIL is jammed packed with Vit C and healing components.

The oils and other ingredients work in two certain ways. They seal in moisture when nails are already damp and they provide a protective coating to nails. For these reasons, the best times to apply the Fairytales Nail Elixir is after showering, bathing or washing dishes when nails are still damp, before and after swimming in chlorine, after exposing nails to harsh chemicals, after taking off nail polish and before bed.
