What an interesting week. I was subject to a battery of 45 Patch Test Allergens, and, you can imagine my surprise when I asked to see the list and 3 out of the 45 Allergens are ingredients in most nail polishes in stores and salons!
I thought after my blog last week on the lovely LCN Winter Trend Polishes, I would like to remind you that the LCN Nail Polishes are FREE OF THE BIG BAD 5 INGREDIENTS still used in most nail polishes today.
Some of you might remember this from the blog I did July 1st 2014. So, once again LCN is years ahead of other brands.
LCN nail polishes are FREE of the following ingredients:
Dibutyl phthalate ( DBP )
Why? This is a chemical used in nail polishes and printing ink etc as an adhesive. It was
found to disrupt the endocrine system ( glands which secrete hormones ).
This chemical has been banned from cosmetics, nail polishes and children toys in
the United States for almost a decade.
Why? A common solvent, similar to benzene and is sometimes used as an inhalant drug
for its intoxicating properties! Want that on your nails or in your system??
Why? Commonly used in nail hardeners and nail polish.
Toxic to human health! In 2011 a United States Toxicology Program described
formaldehyde as ” a substance capable of causing cancer in humans ” !
Why? Waxy and flammable. Used as moth repellent and even in fireworks! It is effective
in the small quantity you find in your Vicks VapoRub but not safe in the quantities
used in nail polish.
Why? A thickening agent used in the cosmetic industry. A waxy substance obtained from
whale oil. I certainly do not want to use anything obtained from an animal!
Well, there you have it in a nutshell. I am sure you will all agree with me that you DO NOT want to use any nail polish that contains the above ingredients. LCN Nail Polishes are also Soy Free, Gluten Free and Vegan and ANIMAL FRIENDLY!
Have the best week ever,
