Nail polish is designed to meet the demands of the modern Nail Polish connoisseur. They desire a nail polish that paints smoothly and without streaks. They desire a nail polish which is quick drying and chip resistant. However all this can come at a price. A health issue price. What most consumers do not know, is that the chemicals found in these mainstream nail polishes may provide the quick, “cheap” fix to colourful nails. After all, you can find cheap nail polish just about anywhere, however you, the consumer is paying the ultimate price. Lurking within the formulations of these mainstream nail polishes are chemicals which are detrimental to ones health. These chemicals do not discriminate, they affect all, men, women, fetus, children, tween, teens adults and elderly.
A start into the right direction is avoiding the “big 3” harmful ingredients found in mainstream nail polishes. They are:
- Formaldehyde (nail hardener and preservative and labeled as human carcinogen by the World Health Organisation)
- Toluene (petroleum based solvent that imparts smoothness to the nail polish however inhalation at even small levels can cause nausea, hearing loss, memory loss and weakness),
- Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) (prevents nail varnish from becoming brittle and chipping and causes many reproductive issues in both men and women)
A study conducted by scientist in Oakland California found that nail polishes widely used in salons across California where laced with high levels of three toxic chemicals linked to birth defects, asthma and other health risks(April 10, 2012, EWG news release http://www.ewg.org/news/news-release/2012/04/10/calif-regulators-%E2%80%9Cno…).
