  • 26 Apr 2020

Don’t you just love to color your nails and make it look all fancy?

We bet you’re not aware of the dangers of nail polish due to its chemical compounds. It could do a lot of damage both on the inside and outside of the body.

Regardless of the brand including popular ones, the presence of numerous harmful chemicals and toxins are inevitable.

Upon research, Astro Ulagam found what happens to your body 10 hours after applying nail polish due to the presence of the following chemical compounds.

1) Triphenylphosphate

Disrupts your endocrine system, hormones, metabolism and the reproductive system. You will destroy your body internally if you color your nails regularly.

2) Toluene

Prevents complete child development and could cause skin irritation as well. Pregnant women and children should not color their nails at all.

3) Formaldehyde

A well known carcinogen that has the ability to dissolve in water and air. It causes symptoms such as inflammation, shortness of breath and asthma. It is extremely dangerous for those suffering from chronic disorders.
