Nail Polish Warning


Check Your Bottles Of Polish

Alexandra Sifferlin of is reporting that "nail polish manufacturers are under the heat lamp after chemical regulators in California found that many polishes claiming to be free of a “toxic trio” of chemicals actually contained high levels of the toxins.

State investigators from the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) randomly sampled 25 brands of polish, which are commonly used in more than 48,000 nail salons in California. These included several polishes claiming to be free of 

three dangerous toxins: 
toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde 

all of which have been linked to health problems ranging from asthma to cancer, the DTSC reports.

The DTSC’s testing found that 10 of 12 products claiming to be free of toluene actually contained it, and four of the brands had dangerously high levels. Five of seven products claiming to be “free of the toxic three” included high levels of one or more of the chemicals..."(Sifferlin, April 10, 2012

  1. Good post! Nail salons and customers need to be aware.

  2. This sounds serious. I had no idea that nail polishes could be dangerous.

    1. Nor did I! I think this is very serious, especially for the ladies that get their nails done regularly, so I had to share this with everyone.

  3. Good post! I can't believe these companies are claiming that they don't have it when they do. It kills me how deceitful some companies can be!
