Why You Should Switch to Safer Nail Polish

WHY IT MATTERS

You might be thinking – wait – nail polish goes on hard nails, not directly on skin – so what’s the big deal?

It turns out that nails are actually quite absorbent, especially when exposed to the combination of solvents and other chemicals in nail polish. That combined with absorption via cuticles and surrounding skin, mean that these chemicals are getting into our bodily systems.

As proof of that point, studies have shown that people who painted their nails had elevated levels of endocrine disrupting chemicals in their urine. Endocrine disrupting chemicals are known to interfere with normal hormone functioning, and can lead to weight gain and reproductive irregularities. This is of especially high concern for salon workers, but obviously not good for anyone.

At Medical Foot Solutions we offer Dr’s Remedy Nail Polishes. To learn more visit out products page.

In the month of July these polishes will be on sale, so you might want to lookout for that!
