FYI: Be “3 Free”

For those of you that are not quite sure what being 3 Free means, the 3 are toxin’s you don’t want to have in your nail polish (and your cosmetics!). They are formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).

Find out what’s in your products search ingredients!!

Environmental Working Group on Phthalates

Campaign For Safe Cosmetics

Toxic Trio Wallet Card

These are all very informative and the last one is extra handy to have on you when you out shopping and find a different brand and it doesn’t say if it is “3 Free”. I was very glad to recently read that OPI is hoping on board, considering they already had in Europe a few years back. That info here. The update here.

I know that’s probably WAYYYY to much to read all at once but the information is here so come back whenever you need to and if you know a site that should be added to this short list feel free to let me know. 🙂
