Kids Nail Polish
😷 Do you recognize that strong, recognizable smell that drifts outside onto the street from nail salons? Don’t inhale it! It can be a sign of airborne toxic chemicals. Nail salons contain air quality that is hazardous to both customers and workers.
🙅 I don’t support nail salons. More than 375,000 nail technicians work in salons across the United States and face health hazards. According to the United States Department of Labor:
"Workers exposed to chemicals found in glues, polishes, removers, emollients, and other salon products may experience negative health effects such as asthma and other respiratory illnesses, skin disorders (e.g. allergic contact dermatitis), liver disease, reproductive loss, and cancer. Nail salon workers can be exposed to biological hazards if they come into contact with infected skin, nails, or blood from a co-worker or client. Diseases that can result from exposure to infected blood include hepatitis and AIDS. Nail salon workers can also get fungal infections, such as athlete's foot, from clients.”
Nail salons are a hazard to us and to the workers. Do not bring your kids into the salon. Paint your nails and your children's nails at home in a ventilated area, using the safest nail polishes that you can possibly find.
💅 Here they are the safest nail polish for kids I found on the market!

❌Not Recommended Brand!
❌Not recommended brand!
This brand has been recommended by a popular green blogger-mom. This has the very ingredients she was warning on her blog: benzophenone-1
"Our non-toxic polish formula": butyl acetate, ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose, adipic acid/neopentyl, glycol/trimellitic, anhydride, copolymer, acetyl tributyl citrate, isopropyl alcohol, stearalkonium bentonite, acrylates copolymer, styrene/acrylates copolymer, silica, benzophenone-1, and trimethylpentanediyl dibenzoate.
So I consider this brang grennwashing since they are not a non-toxic polish brand!
