Reasons Nail Polish is Unhealthy for You

Nail polish has so many bad ingredients in it that make breathing it in or putting it on the enamel of your hands truly bad. The reason it is good to DIY your own is because you will be able to monitor and keep track of all the products you use and trade some of the bad ones out for the good ones. But what exactly makes the nail polish you can pick up at your nearest pharmacy so bad? Well, here are some reasons.

Formaldehyde

This is the ingredient that is placed in what they use to preserve the dead. It is also in beauty products such as nail polish, keratin hair things treatments, and more. Isn’t it a crazy thing it is even legal to use this ingredient for something that is going on your body? Well, not exactly. That leads us to our second point…

Very Limited Regulation

Did you know that the ingredients in cosmetics, especially in the United States, don’t have much FDA regulation at all? It’s actually insane how much these companies get away with when it comes to adding in ingredients that can harm people. A common statistic in this area is that only 10% of all cosmetic products actually have regulated the testing of the ingredients placed inside of them. That alone should make you think twice before you go and purchase cosmetics. Reading the label is vital for health.

Toluene

This is another ingredient used in traditional, store-bought nail polish that is also used in gasoline! How insane is that?! This damaging ingredient can cause issues for the reproductive system as well as the nervous system. Really, it is just not worth all the issues that could come along with going the easy route.
