How dangerous is nail polish?

It seems that on the Romanian market there are still many nail polishes that contain toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde, extremely toxic substances. Proof is that they have been banned in the EU.

Toluene, dangerous to the human embryo

Toluene is a derivative of benzene. It is often used as a thinner for industrial paints. There are animal studies that have shown that this substance can be extremely dangerous for the human embryo.

Nail polishes also contain carcinogens

The other two substances (Formaldehyde and DBP) are known to cause serious diseases, such as skin cancer. So, be very careful when buying nail polishes. Read their label carefully and make sure that they do not contain these substances that can endanger your life.

Affects the reproductive system

U.S. researchers have noticed that a chemical called triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), used to make nail polish more resistant, crosses the skin barrier and reaches the bloodstream. Thus, it has been shown that nail polish containing this chemical is a real health hazard, because it also contains substances that affect the hormonal and reproductive system.
