How to Achieve A Non-Toxic Manicure and Colors To Try This Fall
If you’ve recently audited your bathroom cabinet, you may have realized that most of the beauty products you own have toxic ingredients. Now, it’s time to replace the products in your beauty bag with clean products with all-natural ingredients or non-harmful chemicals.
While many women are aware of toxins in makeup, skincare and hair care products, we’ve got some not-so-great news about your favorite nail polish.
According to this 2010 New York Times article, most traditional nail polishes contain a trio of toxic ingredients: toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde. All three have been noted by the California Safe Cosmetics Act to cause cancer or birth defects.
Thankfully, there are new polishes on the market with cleaner ingredients and colors that will put a smile on your face when you catch a glance of your colorful manicure.
