Nontoxic Nail Polish: What Does It Mean to be Five Free?

toolate-225x300What does it mean when nail polish says it’s five free anyway? What toxins are these nail polishes free of? Well, when your polish states it is indeed five free it doesn’t contain any of these toxic chemicals:

  • Dibutyl Phthalate or DBP
  • Toluene
  • Formaldehyde
  • Formaldehyde Resin
  • Camphor

So you now ask, so what? Well, let us explain to you what these sketchy toxins actually do to your nails and your overall health.

Dibutyl Phthalate or DBP
DBP is considered a teratogenetic—a fancy way of saying it causes birth defects. Not to mention, other countries have already banned this chemical from use in various industries.


Toluene is used in the making of many products including paint thinners, adhesives, rubber and hair dyes. It can affect the central nervous system, and many other important parts of the human body.


Yes, the same stuff they use to preserve dead bodies is also a known carcinogen. So very toxic to your body.

Formaldehyde Resin
Although formaldehyde resin hasn’t been linked to cancer like regular formaldehyde, it’s a skin allergen known to cause dermatitis. No problem anyone wants to have.


This scented substance can cause nausea, dizziness, and headaches when inhaled, especially in large doses, making it a concern for nail technicians.
