Did you know that you can make healthier choices when it comes to the nail polish you use? Conventional nail polish can be one of the most toxic beauty products with chemicals especially harmful to children and pregnant women.
Consider avoiding nail polishes that contain the “Toxic 3” chemicals:
( can cause cancer when exposed to it for over long period of time )
( bad for the reproductive system )
( can be harmful to unborn fetuses )
Even better if you can use “5-free” (or more) nail polishes that don’t contain formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, and the allergens camphor and formaldehyde resin.
Some polishes go beyond 5-free, removing up to even 9 or 10 potentially dangerous ingredients. It’s worth it to spend a little more and take care of your health. After all, health is wealth! Below are a few suggestions for safer nail polish alternatives, so you can look AND feel good about your nails:
Free of Dibutyl phthalate or DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde.
Free of the “Toxic 3” listed above + formaldehyde resin and camphor.
( in addition to 5-free these are made without xylene and ethyl tosylamide )
