Why is 5-Free Nail Polish Important?
Nails are very porous, especially when wet. We are also exposed to toxins from polish when we rub our eyes or bite our nails.
Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde vapors are irritating to our system and can trigger asthma. Formaldehyde is also a known human carcinogen, a factor directly involved in causing cancer.
Toluene: Toluene is toxic to the nervous system, impairs breathing, can cause nausea, developmental damage to the fetus, and is linked to malignant lymphoma. You can be exposed to toluene by breathing it in or getting it on your skin, causing skin irritation.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): Dibutyl phthalate is an endocrine disruptor and has been linked to cancer. DBP has also been connected to birth defects in studies involving lab animals. In fact, this toxin was added to the California Proposition 65 list of suspected teratogens, which are agents that cause malformations of an embryo.
Camphor: Camphor can cause seizures, liver damage and disorientation if used in large doses. This chemical acts as a cover on your nails, depriving them of nutrients and causing yellow staining on your nails.
Phthalate: Phthalate exposure can occur from breathing in air that contains phthalate vapors or dust contaminated with phthalate particles. Linked to developmental damage to the fetus.
