Informed Beauty ingredient look out:

“Most kinds of house paint are less toxic than what you find in nail polish.”- Cora Roelofs, assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts School of Health and Environment. She is a researcher who specializes in health problems associated with nail salon employees.

Formaldehyde is a resin, used to make the polish tough and resilient. It is associated with cancer, developmental/reproductive toxicity, allergies/immunotoxicity, eye, skin, and/or lung irritation, neurotoxicity, organ system toxicity, and changes at the biochemical and cellular level.

Toluene is a solvent, aiding in the application of polish. It is known to be neurotoxic to humans. It is also harmful to the reproductive systems. It goes without saying that it, too, is also a known carcinogen.

DBP stands for dibutyl phthalate. It is a plasticizer that works to prevent chips and cracks. Phthalates are hormone disrupters that have been shown to be toxic to the developmental and reproductive systems of both men and women. “In a 2000 survey by U.S. Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified high levels of phthalates, particularly (DEHP), in the urine of approximately 300 women. The highest levels were found in women of reproductive age.” It should be noted that if the fact that what you are applying to your nails is making its way into your urine doesn’t scare you enough, this fact should, “A subsequent pilot study reported genital abnormalities in male babies whose mothers were found to have high levels of four phthalate byproducts.” – Toxic Beauty

 

 

Acquarella’s non-toxic polishes

Hydrates Nail and Tissue – Promotes healthy growth

Hydration of the nail is an indirect, qualitative look at the following properties of the nail: color, strength, flexibility, and growth rate. Normally, strength is inversely proportional to flexibility with use of conventional products. Since Acquarella contains water and allows the nail to “breathe”, it creates a permeable environment where the nail can exhibit both qualities. We assert that consumers will see a change in their bare nails with pro- longed, repeated use. This visible trail of evidence will allow you to see the nail turn from a state of discoloration to an ultimately clearer state (a natural French manicure). This will require a long-term observation. Over the course of months, newer healthy nail will re- place old, chemically damaged or stained nail structure and will be visibly different than nail closer to the cuticle.
