Do you know what is in your nail polish?

This one is difficult for me, because I wear nail polish all the time. How can the make up industry be unregulated. Is that only in the USA or does that mean in the Eu as well. I guess I need to  try to find that out.

  1. I don’t know the details about nail polish in Europe but I do know it’s not good news…

    • I guess in my naivety, I believed that make up and food was regulated. I believed that oversight was done to protect the consumers from being human guinea pigs. The irony is that, the EU has stronger regulations than the USA. Multinational products are allowed into the EU, that violate EU regulations. We, the consumers, are unaware of it. Those loopholes need to be closed.

      • They certainly do!

        A friend of mine first alerted me to the problem with cosmetics about ten years ago, so when there was a programme on tv about the residual toxins in women’s bodies and potential effects on the unborn child I was glad I had started to do something about my usage before I became pregnant.

      • You are lucky to have such a good friendthat warned you of the hidden dangers. Your kids are lucky that you abstained from wearing it while pregnant and breast feeding.
