What are the 5 most toxic ingredients to avoid in nail polish?
Dibutyl phthalate, also known as "plasticizers",
is used to prevent chipping and to give shine.
It is a known carcinogen, which causes reproductive problems
and thyroid, and has also been linked to hormonal changes. Formaldehyde is used to harden the nails. That's also
a known carcinogen, inhaled on evaporation, and causes
allergic reactions if it comes in contact with the skin. Toluene gives a smooth finish to the nail, helping to maintain color
uniform. It is a volatile organic compound, causing irritation
eyes, lungs and throat when inhaled, and affects
also the central nervous system. Formaldehyde resin is not as toxic as formaldehyde,
but it is a derivative and a known allergen. Camphor is generally used as a topical treatment for a cold
or flu. Think: Vicks Vapo-Rub. Camphor was made in
distilling the bark and camphor wood. Camphor is
chemically made from turpentine oil. In the USA,
camphor oil has been withdrawn from the market due to safety concerns.
It is still available in Canada without a prescription. Camphor acts to
stimulate nerve endings to relieve pain and itching.
Ingestion of camphor is what can cause serious side effects,
even death. Bite your nails!
