‘5-Free’ Nail Polish…Why is it important?

Hello! Hola! Salut!  How are you doing?  Do you have any interesting things that are taking up your time?  Well, I can definitely say, we are steadily working to be an informative and fun blog spot for all our lacquer lovers.

If you love nail polish, I’m very sure you have heard of ‘3 free’, ‘4 free’ and ‘5 free’ formulas.  It’s a hot topic, so I wanted to write about it.

Lenora Nail Colors offer a unique and quality ‘5 free’ nail polish.  This means that it is free of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP).

Stated below is basic information about these chemicals.

Formaldehyde is common in the chemical industry and has many different uses, including tissue preservation in medical labs and mortuaries.  It has been classified as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance).

Formaldehyde Resin is a synthetic substance used in the production of adhesives and paints.  It is a derivative or by-product of Formaldehyde.

Camphor is a flammable white substance that has a strong odor.  When inhaled in large doses, it can cause nausea and headaches.

Toluene is a clear colorless liquid used as a solvent and to make paint thinner, adhesives and nail polish.  Inhaling high levels over a period of time can cause brain damage or depression.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) is a commonly used plasticizer and allows nail polish to be flexible.  It is also used as an additive to adhesives, printing inks and shower curtains.

Of course, this is not an extended list of all the uses of these chemicals.  I wrote about this because many people wonder what it means and we love that our customers are informed.

At Lenora Nail Colors, we are committed to provide products that is safer and affordable to everyone.
