Which toxic chemicals are commonly found in nail polish?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are three main toxic chemicals found in most nail polishes: Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene. DBP does not evaporate readily in the atmosphere, and is often used as a plasticiser. Formaldehyde is found in nail hardeners more so than the actual polish; often, formaldehyde resin can be dangerous. Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon used as an industrial solvent. The risks and effects of limited exposure to these chemicals is still yet to be determined.
