Before you hit up the nail salon, hear this: California regulators say several nail polishes claiming to be “non-toxic” are actually more toxic than their labels imply.
The three chemicals in question: toluene, DBP and formaldehyde, toxins linked to serious health issues, including cancers and birth defects.
At the moment, there’s no way to know which products are true to their claims. Salon customers are definitely exposed, and workers are even more in danger since they work amidst the fumes and chemicals all day.
Polish may be oh so pretty, but protecting your health is even more so!
