Our Mission

The Collaborative’s mission is to improve the health, safety, and rights of the nail and beauty care workforce to achieve a healthier, more sustainable, and just industry.

We are winning worker protections, fostering the creation of “healthy salons,” and improving public health.

89%. That's the percentage of 10,000 chemicals in personal care products that have not been tested for impacts on human health. 

There are more than 129,000 nail salon workers in California. Most of them are immigrant women from Vietnam.

94% of customers would recommend and would more likely patronize a nail salon that used healthier products. 


Take Action

The fight for nail salon worker health, safety and rights includes fighting for environmental and reproductive justice, immigrant rights, and women's rights. Please consider joining us!
