This is turning out to be a nail blog!
However, I am sticking to my theme of minerals or no harmful chemicals as much as possible hence my purchases of Big 3 Free polishes.
What was that again?
As you may have noticed in previous posts I keep mentioning Big 3 free polishes. What does that mean? Big 3 Free means polishes free of the 3 toxic chemicals: Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP or Dibutyl Phthalate.
To break it down:
DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate) - is commonly used as a plasticizer. This chemical is banned in the European Union and is restricted for use in children's toys. Possible health issues with the use of DBP: suspected teratogen (may cause birth defects), carcinogen (can cause cancer), diabetes, obesity, suspected endocrine disruptor.
