This product plays two roles: use as a base coat underneath nail enamel to ensure long wear, and use as a top coat to reduce chipping.
FREE of the major toxins found in conventional polishes such as formaldehyde, toluene, DBP (phthalates), formaldehyde resin, TPHP, camphor, xylene, parabens, fragrances, silicones, acetone, mineral oils, propylene glycol, ethanolamine, and animal ingredients.
Although nail polish can never be completely natural because it still contains solvents, modern polishes are full of toxins and you breathe them in, as well as absorb them through your skin every time you paint your nails. This is significantly worse if you have your nails done at a salon. POOFY POLISH does NOT have any of the major toxins! The major toxins found in nail polish are:
Toluene- A human reproductive toxin.
Formaldehyde- A known carcinogen, plus they pickle dead bodies in it. YUCK!
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)- Known to cause infertility, uterine cancer, testicular cancer & fetal defects just to name a few!
Camphor - Poisonous & can cause liver damage.
Propylene glycol- antifreeze, used to de-ice airplanes
Fragrance- can contain thousands of untested chemicals
Silicones- hormone disruptor
Parabens- estrogen mimicker
Ethanolamine- organ system & reproductive toxicity
Mineral oil- made of petroleum
Xylene- an ancient ingredient found in polishes – damages the central nervous system.
