Many popular nail polishes on the market today still contain toxins including the toxic trio:

Formaldehyde; a carcinogen. Can irritate the eyes, nose and throat, and lead to skin irritation and dermatitis.

Toluene; dry or cracked skin; headaches, dizziness, and numbness; irritated eyes, nose, throat, and lungs; damage to liver and kidneys; and harm to unborn children during pregnancy.

Dibutyl phthalate (DBP); linked to infertility, uterine cancer and testicular cancer. Exposure can affect thyroid function, and in utero exposure is linked to reproductive problems in baby boys and decreased sperm count.

But, the toxic buck doesn’t stop there. Nail polish can also contain other harmful chemicals, such as camphor; linked to liver damage and formaldehyde resins. Add to this, the acetone and synthetic fragrance found in most nail polish removers and it’s enough to cause headaches, dizziness, irritated eyes, skin, and throat, affect the nervous system, cause liver damage and sometimes lead to cancer.
