Palate Polish is a non-toxic nail polish line with food inspired names. All polishes are hand-mixed and made in small batches in Portland, Oregon.
It is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and 5-free. 5-free means it does not contain the toxic chemicals: Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. It is also free of the toxic chemical, Triphenyl Phosphate.
How are these ingredients toxic?
Toluene affects the central nervous system and can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness and fatigue. Chronic exposure is linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage.
Formaldehyde is a known human carcinogen that has been associated with leukemia and asthma. It can also irritate the eyes, nose and throat and lead to skin irritation or cause an allergic rash called dermatitis.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) is a developmental and reproductive toxin. Exposure can affect thyroid function.
Formaldehyde Resin is a derivative of Formaldehyde, it is not as toxic as Formaldehyde but can be an allergen.
Camphor is a poison that can cause seizures and disorientation. This chemical acts as a cover on your nails, depriving them of nutrients and causing yellow staining on your nails.
Tiphenyl Phsosphate is a chemical used in plastics to improve flexibility and as a flame retardant. It affects your hormones – in particular, it could potentially affect reproductive health and lipid metabolism.
