The Megan Miller Collection consists entirely of 3 FREE Nail Polish of the highest quality.
3 Free in its simplest terms means Nail Polish that Does Not Contain:
1) Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
We refer to these three Chemicals as the "Big 3" because these are the dangerous and disputed chemicals within the composition of Nail Polish.
Dibutyl Phthalate or DBP is a plasticizer that makes nail polish flexible. Phthalates are known to affect hormone function and long-term exposure may cause damage to the kidneys and liver. Pregnant women must consider that DBP may harm the developing fetus and the male testes.
Toluene is a colorless liquid used as a solvent. Toluene is a human reproductive and developmental toxin. It is thought to cause liver damage and skin irritation. In high levels it may affect the kidneys. Toluene has been linked to birth defects.
Formaldehyde assists in hardening the nail. Formaldehyde has been linked to cancer and inhaling the fumes can result in watery eyes, headache, and labored breathing.
To know the toxicity level of these chemicals, visit Skin Deep, the most popular online safety guide for cosmetics and personal care products. Search results at Skin Deep database show that DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde have the same high hazard score of 10. The hazard score is on 0 - 10 scale, (10 corresponding to highest concern). Moreover, all these ingredients are linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive toxicity and allergies (visit this website for details).
Be careful to check the ingredient list before you buy. Use nail polish and other beauty products that are free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP.
Consider how often you come in contact with products that have a high hazard level. For example, if you often get your nails done at salon, be cautious about what products they use and how good ventilation in the salon is.
Also be aware, if a nail polish is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP, it doesn't mean that a nail treatment from the same brand is also free from all of these toxic chemicals. In fact, there are many well-known nail treatments that still use one or two toxic ingredients.
A good thing from this question is people are becoming more aware about the products they use. Bad thing is, yes there are actually many bad chemicals found in our cosmetics we use every day. And just knowing it will surprise most of us. Be aware, Go 3 Free!
