There’re way too many reasons to love manicured glossy nails coated with beautiful shades. Yet, some of those pretty little bottles in your beauty cabinets might have some dirty secrets that they don’t want you to know.
We’re talking about the big ‘dirty 5’ ingredients that are commonly found in conventional nail polish formula. For those of you who’re new to this 5-free revolution, let us repeat this very important ‘dirty 5’ list as the health concerns they’re potentially linked to are simply beyond shocking:
The big three –
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): linked to cancer and connected to birth defects in studies
Formaldehyde: known human carcinogen
Toluene: cause birth defects and linked to developmental problems in children of pregnant women
Plus the other nasty two –
Formaldehyde Resin: possible allergen
Camphor: cause seizures and disorientation if used in large doses
Yikes! Who has time to deal with carcinogens and hormones disruptors when all we want are squeaky clean nails.
While most of you might have heard of vegan donuts, vegan brownies and vegan nutella, vegan nail polish sounds like a foreign concept to some.
