In a non-related article the Chicago Tribune also recently ran a piece spotlighting Salon Hype, a Chicago area salon that is dedicated to eliminating products that contain potentially harmful ingredients.
"... If you've ever read the list of
ingredients on a bottle of polish you'd be amazed. The list of harmful
ingredients is long and often unpronounceable and sometimes reduced to
initials. Have you ever heard of toluene? The Occupational Health and
Safety Administration (OSHA) is on the record saying it causes kidney
and lung problems, and can be harmful to pregnant women. Toluene is
found in nail glue and most nail polishes, but we use toluene-free
polishes, like Zoya. An ingredient you've no doubt heard of is
formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen, as well as causes all sorts
of breathing problems and is used in nail hardeners and polishes."~ Chicago Tribune
*Zoya Nail Polish features a 5 free formula which does not include formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene and camphor.
