Nail Polish Ingredients To Avoid At All Costs

1. Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen and respiratory irritant, is frequently employed as a hardener and preservative for nails.

2. Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)

DBP has been associated with hormonal disruptions and may impact reproductive health.

3. Toluene

Toluene is a solvent that can cause damage to the nervous system, respiratory problems, and developmental issues.

4. Camphor

Camphor in high concentrations can irritate the skin, and inhaling its fumes can cause vertigo or nausea.

5. Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP)

Used as a flame retardant, TPHP may interfere with hormonal function.

6. Ethyl Tosylamide

This ingredient may contribute to antibiotic resistance and interfere with endocrine function.

7. Xylene

Xylene is a solvent that can cause irritation of the skin and lungs, as well as headaches and vertigo.

8. Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)

MMA is a strong adhesive, but its use in nail products can cause irritation to the epidermis and damage to the nails.

9. Parabens

Parabens are preservatives with the potential to disrupt hormonal homeostasis and have adverse health effects.
