Meet AILA Founder, Dr Cary Gannon
Dr Cary Gannon likens many years of her life to that of a ticking time bomb. Experiencing the stress of having lived through a rare disease, the raising of two children, and managing a surgical career prompted her to make healthy changes in her life and, by extension, inspire other women who are chronic "over-functioners." After discovering the disturbing, hidden truth behind the making of many of the products in her podiatry industry, Dr Gannon’s "OMG! moment" led her to take matters into her own hands, and AILA Cosmetics was born. In developing AILA Cosmetics, she found balance in her life by intentionally marrying the words health and beauty into a gorgeous line of products that empowers women to never settle for less than they're worth. Dr Gannon is proud to offer a luxurious product which functions like a high-end nail system because it is a high-end nail system.

Fact: Nails are porous and can easily absorb chemicals.

FACT: At AILA, we provide healthy alternatives to traditional nail products. AILA nail colors are vegan as well as free of Parabens and Gluten
Typical nail polish contains chemicals that are damaging to nails – the "nasty five":
Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde has been commonly used in nail hardeners and nail polish despite being classified as a known carcinogen by the US National Toxicology Program. It is also used as a tissue fixative and an embalming agent!
Formaldehyde Resin: A synthetic polymer used in circuit boards and moulded products such as pool balls and coatings and adhesives.
Toluene: An organic solvent with the ability to dissolve paint, rubber, ink, adhesive, lacquers, among other products. It is frequently employed as an octane booster for internal combustion systems.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBT): DBT is a plasticiser and a common additive to adhesives. It is suspected that DBT may disrupt the endocrine system and has been restricted from use in cosmetics by the European Union.
Camphor: Camphor is another chemical used in the embalming process but also has applications as a plasticiser for nitrocellulose and in fireworks. It is highly flammable and toxic even in small doses.
AILA cosmetics eliminated these chemicals from their products. It is called the 5-free system.

AILA Cosmetics not only want to protect the nail, but also enhance nail health
AILA nail primer is infused with garlic, which has been touted for centuries as having significant nail strengthening and health benefits due to high levels of Allicin, Sulphur, Zinc, Calcium and Selenium
AILA's 3-in-1 Soy-Based Remover with Pure Argan Oil - Why is it important to use a plant-based remover? Nail polish remover is typically classified as acetone or non-acetone but both of these chemicals can be harmful to your nails and the surrounding skin. These chemicals are commonly used to dissolve varnishes, paints, resins, plastics and glue. At AILA Cosmetics, we decided that we don’t want those chemicals on our skin so we developed a natural soy-based nail polish remover enhanced with Argan oil.
AILA Nail and Cuticle Therapy - The health benefits of coconut oil have been well documented for years. It is commonly known to have anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-yeast properties when taken orally and when used topically. The medium chain triglycerides insert themselves into the cellular membrane of the fungus or yeast and cause the cell wall to degenerate thus destroying the fungus. High levels of lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid within coconut oil empower it to control fungal infestation in toenails combined with the added benefit of moisturising the nails. You’ll be glad to know that AILA’s nail and cuticle therapy is 100% organic and has been specially extracted to possess the highest degree of lauric acid, which is far superior from commonly purchased coconut oils,
