5 Free nail polish line!

Posted by Tanisha Lawrence on

What's "5-free" any way? Many of you may ask. It's a term used to distinguish nail polishes that are made without 5 harsh chemicals used in many well known nail polish brands.
1. Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) - known to cause life long reproductive impairments and also linked to cancer. Used in nail polish to increase flexibility and shine.
2. Toluene - Harmful to your nervous system. Inhaling high levels can cause light-headedness and nausea. Used in nail polish as a thinner and gives application a smooth finish.
3. Formaldehyde - is a chemical used to embalm dead animals and humans. Can trigger asthma. Is a well known carcinogen (causes cancer). Used in nail polish as a hardener/preservation. Helps from chipping
4. Formaldehyde Resin - Derivative of formaldehyde, however not as toxin. Skin allergen known to cause dermatitis. Used in nail polish top coats as a nail strengthener.
5. Camphor - poisonous. Can cause seizures and disorientation if used in large doses. Acts as a cover on your nails, which deprives them of nutrients and causing yellow staining on your nails.
Well there you have it! A little fun fact to look into when you choose your nail polish!

  • This is literally THE BEST nail polish I’ve ever used! My mom thinks she received it in her Ipsy bag last year. Have never been able to find it in any store.
