San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
As news broke this week that Kate Moss is on medication to combat an infection contracted after a pedicure, it is not hard to believe that a trip to the salon is more dangerous than one might think. Cross-contamination from tools not properly sanitized and bacterial growth in pedicure footbaths can and have left many women wondering what went wrong. Americans spend over six billion dollars on nail services each year, and these dangers cannot continue to go unnoticed. SaniManiPedi (http://www.SaniManiPedi.com) provides an answer to this problem through their new offering of innovative and stylish products which help protect consumers from nail salon risks.
SaniManiPedi has developed a unique 100% natural Liquid Solution that, when added to a pedicure footbath, helps to protect, clean and soothe, and a chic Manicure/Pedicure Kit that eliminates the risk of cross-contamination from salon tools not properly disinfected. Indulging in a manicure or pedicure may seem safe, but it can lead to very serious skin infections and diseases including Hepatitis B and C, HIV, athlete's foot, nail fungus, and bacterial infections like staph and others. Many states have reported outbreaks that, in some cases, have even led to death.
"People need to be aware of the potential dangers of visiting a nail salon, no matter how fancy or reputable," says Suzann Cowing, founder of SaniManiPedi. "After getting an infection at a local salon, I set out to develop a product to help protect myself and others. SaniManiPedi allows you to leave the spa with gorgeous toes and nothing else."
The SaniManiPedi Liquid Solution ($12.95 for five single use containers) is a proprietary solution made of 100% natural products including moisturizers, cleansing oils and natural antiseptics. Simply tear open a single-use, biodegradable, environmentally friendly container, and add the liquid to your pedicure footbath.
The SaniManiPedi Kit ($49.95) includes a stainless steel nail clipper, stainless steel cuticle nipper, stainless steel pusher, orange stick, file, callus stone and two samples of the SaniManiPedi Liquid Solution. All tools are professional grade and come in a chic carry-all that will fit easily in your purse, briefcase or car glovebox, making it simple to keep close at hand.

Ten percent of all proceeds are donated to Childcare Worldwide, a charity dedicated to supporting AIDS orphans in Africa and other children living in poverty.
