Questions & Answers for Butter London Nail Foundation™ Flawless Basecoat

I'm looking for a basecoat to protect my nails from the harsher ingredients in normal polish. For such a "non-toxic" touting company, it seems very weird that they don't list their ingredients!

It's "3-free" - no formaldehyde, toluene, and one other one. I'm sensitive to some of those chemicals too but this brand seems to be gentle on my nails.
