The Best Non-Toxic Nail Polishes



Nail polish is one of those things that we tend to forget, even though it’s just as important as any other product we put on our bodies. Just as any other skincare product nail polish is absorbed by the body.


So what makes your everyday nail polish toxic?

Non-toxic nail polishes are usually three-free, meaning they do not contain formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate. Beyond that, brands go as far as being 9,10 or even 14-free.


Here's a breakdown of what's missing from non-toxic nail polishes.


  • 5-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin.

  • 7-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene.

  • 10-free contains no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, parabens, acetone, TPHP, TBHP, gluten.
