I have been reading a lot about chemicals and cancerous toxins in our cosmetics. It is just terrible how for greed of money, men doesn’t mind killing other fellow beings by poisoning them. However, there are also good news that we have now alternatives available. Here, we talk about nail polishes.
If you’re in love with your regular manicure, it is really possible to find a healthy alternative. A formaldehyde free nail polish is now available and this is good news for nail salon workers who have always been at risk working with these products every day. Some of these nail salon workers have reported an increase in breathing problems and asthma.
There are some nail polish manufacturers who have started re-formulating their products in order to remove the toxic ingredients from nail polishes, such as dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde and toluene. Dibutyl phthalate is used in nail polishes to add that lovely moisturizing sheen, but it also happens to be a reproductive and developmental toxin which is particularly bad for boys to inhale. Formaldehyde on the other hand is found in nail hardening products and it leads to skin irritations and will also irritate the eyes and throat.

Some top brands are making safe, non-toxic nail polishes, and if you expand your shopping to pharmacies and online, it won’t be hard to find an excellent range of nail polishes that provide performance without the toxins. It is always best to read the labels and verify the ingredients of any of the bail polishes you use to establish if you are being offered the 3-free or 5-free polishes that promise to dazzle and shimmer without any dangerous side effects.
