When it comes to healthy beauty nail polishes are almost on the top of the list of the “most toxic products”. Most of the regular polishes are containing ingredients like Formaldehyde, which can cause serious problems when inhaled, or absorbed through your nails. So this spring I was concentrating not only on picking the trendiest colours for you, but also the healthiest nail polish alternatives possible. Check my selection and colour up your spring with all these amazing 5-free nail polishes !
What exactly does 5-free means?
The label “5-free” on nail polishes marks that those products are made without the toxic chemicals regularly found in nail polishes such as Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate or DBP and the well known Formaldehyde, and also lacks of 2 very dangerous ingredients; Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.
