Is you nail polish toxic?
Chances are if you paint your nails with mainstream nail polish at least one potentially hormone-disrupting chemical is ending up in your body.
A recent study by Researchers at Duke University and Environmental Working Group found evidence of TPHP in the bodies of study participants “just 10 to 14 hours after painting their nails.”1 According to EWG “there is growing evidence that the chemical could affect hormones, metabolism, reproduction and development.”1
Unfortunately, TPHP is only one of many toxic chemicals currently used in mainstream nail polish brands. Make sure you also avoid brands which contain the following toxic chemicals: Formaldehyde (carcinogen), Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and Camphor.
