What's 14 Free?
As is the case for many things in life, we cannot remove all potential toxins that we may not like, however, we did manage to remove 12 toxic ingredients common in other nail polishes that we do NOT use, here's a bit about them:
Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde Resin can irritate the nose, eyes and throat and has been linked to nose and throat cancer. It also causes nails to stain yellow without base coat. This chemical makes polishes NOT breathable/Halal/ Kosher
Toluene can cause headaches, unconsciousness, dizziness and at maximum exposure: incoordination, tiredness, memory loss and even vision and hearing loss. This chemical makes nail polish non-breathable.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) can cause reproductive harm. This chemical makes nail polish non-breathable.
Camphor can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, twitching/tremors, dizziness, convulsions and delirium
Xylene can cause headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea
Ethyl Tosylamide can cause headaches and dizziness
Parabens are believed by some to be linked to breast cancer
Triphenyl Phosphate is thought to cause reproductive harm and can be toxic to marine life
Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) can cause dermatitis
Mequinol (MEHQ) /Hydroquinone (HQ) can cause skin irritation and can be carcinogenic.
Palm Oil: the production is thought to lead to deforestation and damage to the environment.
