MORE THAN JUST ECO FRIENDLY

Most of the nail polish brands has get rid of the three ingredients which reportedly linked to toxicity. Now, the three big bad chemicals have two more company.

If you ever noticed the three ingredients, they are formaldehyde, dibutylphthalate (DBP) and toluene. Recently, there are two more toxic ingredients to avoid painting onto your nails, formaldehyde resin and camphor. According to the FDA, formaldehyde resin (strengthener used in nail polish), is truly toxic if you bite your nails. As for camphor, it can be toxic if ingested or inhaled in large amounts.

Don’t freak out just yet, after all many mainstream brands are already three free. But wouldn’t it be good to be five free? From the fashion week favorite, Priti NYC to a prestige brand, Chanel (surprise surprise), here are the 10 nail polishes brands without those 5 toxic ingredients.
