A report of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control reveals that bottle of nail polish that were advertised to be free of toxic chemicals were found to contain those chemicals. The trio of toxins found in nail polish are Toluene, Formaldehyde, and DBP. Exposure to large amounts of the chemicals has been linked to developmental problems, asthma and other illnesses.
Investigators found that 10 of 12 products checked showed a presence of the toxic chemicals, with four of them showing high levels that were dangerous. The mislabeling of these products present a public health risk and a workplace hazard for those who work in pedicure shops and inhale fumes from these nail polishes.
As a podiatrist in Houston, I recommend Dr's Remedy Enriched Nail Polish, which is free of the "Toxic Triad" and is enriched with natural antifungals and vitamins. It does not present the health risk when the polish is inhaled and does not have the caustic chemical that can damage the toenails. You can visit Tanglewood Foot Specialists to purchase Dr's Remedy Enriched Nail Polish. For those who live outside the Houston area, you can order Dr's Remedy online.
