Beware of Toxic Nail Polish

Beware of Toxic Nail Polish

Your favorite nail polish could include a toxic trio of formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and toluene. Even some brands that claim to be “toxin free” have turned out to contain these chemicals upon testing. Some of the most common nail polish chemicals have been linked to reproductive problems, birth defects, and cancer.*

OPI, a brand widely used in salons, is one solvent-based polish that is free of all three of these toxic chemicals. You can also seek out water-based brands, such as Acquarella and Honeybee Gardens, for a nail polish with a low hazard rating.

Express your love today!
