5-Free What is 5-Free Nail Lacquer?

Nail lacquers that are made without the following toxic chemicals:

Toluene is used as a solvent.  Exposure to toluene may occur from breathing ambient or indoor air affected by such sources.  The central nervous system (CNS) is the primary target organ for toluene toxicity in both humans and animals for acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) exposures. Human studies have reported developmental effects, such as CNS dysfunction, attention deficits, and minor craniofacial and limb anomalies, in the children of pregnant women exposed to high levels of toluene or mixed solvents by inhalation.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) is a plasticizer.  It appears to have relatively low acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) toxicity. No studies are available on the reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of dibutyl phthalate in humans.  This toxin was, however, added to the California Proposition 65 list of suspected teratogens, which are agents that cause malformations of an embryo. Animal studies have reported developmental and reproductive effects from oral exposure.

Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable gas at room temperature and has a strong odor. The primary way you can be exposed to formaldehyde is by breathing air containing off-gassed formaldehyde.  Formaldehyde can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat. High levels of exposure may cause some types of cancers.

Formaldehyde Resin is a synthetic derivative of Formaldehyde.  It is not as toxic as Formaldehyde but may be an allergen.

Camphor is a waxy, flammable, white or transparent solid with a strong aromatic odor. In small doses, effects on the body include skin flushing, slower breathing, reduced appetite, increased secretions and excretions such as perspiration and diuretic.

Our nail polish remover works for conventional nail polish. It is an excellent replacement for traditional chemical nail polish remover including acetone based polish remover or acetate based polish remover (so-called acetone-free remover). Unlike acetone, our will not dry nails. Instead, many people find it moisturizing / hydrating.
