DOES NOT CONTAINS:
FORMALDEHYDE~ is a preservative, nail hardener, and strengthener in regular polishes.
TOLUENE~ included in some polishes as a solvent to smooth application is known to impaired human reproduction and development, impaired breathing, being harmful to the nervous system and nausea.
DIBUTYL PHTHALATE (DBT)~ shown to affect the reproductive system and linked to cancer, DBP has been used as a plasticizer and solvent to increase wear.
FORMALDEHYDE RESIN~ a derivative of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin is a hardener and in large doses can be a skin allergen.
CAMPHOR~ added to some polishes for high-shine, camphor can cause allergic reactions as a result in large doses, cause irritation, dizziness, nausea, and headaches.
NO TRIPHENYL PHOSPHATE (TPHP)~ also known as TPP, research suggests it causes changes in hormone regulation, metabolism, and reproductive systems. They are plasticizer, which makes the polish flexible yet durable.
XYLENE~ used by some brands to help polish from getting gloppy, xylene is also a known allergen and a possible carcinogen.
ETHYL TOSYLAMIDE/EPOXY RESIN~ this ingredient has antibiotic properties which raises concern over antibiotic resistance. It can be used as a plasticizer to help polishes dry faster.
PARABENS~ used as preservatives. Parabens get a bad rep for having estrogen-mimicking effects, as a result, may trigger hormonal problems.
GLUTEN~ hydrolyzed wheat protein, while considered nontoxic by some, as a result, does pose potentially severe issues for those who are gluten intolerant. Used to help moisturize soft, brittle nails, it presents an allergy concern.
