Nail polish is a favorite, but did you know that it can be toxic?! It is #toxictuesday and we want to talk to you about nail polish!

If you’ve never thought about what you are putting on your nails, you aren’t alone! Many of us have never even thought to think about our nail polish is bad for us!

There are some ingredients that you should watch out for when it comes to nail polish:
  • Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
  • Toluene
  • Formaldehyde OR Formaldehyde resin
  • Campho
  • Xylene
  • Lead
  • Parabens

We suggest using a brand that is at least free of the biggest three chemicals above: DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene.

Some non-toxic nail polish brands we recommend trying are:
  • Sophi
  • Piggy Paint
  • Kapaa Nui
  • Lauren B. Beauty
  • Poofy Supernaturals

Will you be checking your nail polish next time you do your nails?
