Why Nail Salon Ingredients Will Give You Cancer

Getting your nails done is a great reason to worry about Cancer. Especially since Gel polish is the current rage, supposedly offering the long wear of acrylic nails without the accompanying nail damage. Gel polishes are popular because the coating is thinner and looks more natural, there’s no dry-time or smudging, and the nails stay shiny and chip-resistant for weeks. This seems like the ultimate nail dream for salon-goers. If this sounds almost too good to be true, though, it may be – because this latest beauty treatment carries with it a number of potential health risks.

First, these “no-chip” nails are actually a form of artificial nails, so the same chemicals used in acrylic nails are also used in gel polishes. Of great concern are the acrylates, which are individual chemical molecules (or monomers) that bind together (in a process called polymerization) to form plastic materials. Acrylates can cause allergic and irritant reactions. Contact dermatitis, which includes skin itching, burning, scaling, hives, blistering, and even eczema, has been shown to be associated with these compounds in salon workers as well as salon customers. So if customers and salon workers have had problems with acrylic nails, they will also have problems with gel polishes.

In scientific circles, the three chemicals in nail products that are associated with the most serious health issues are dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde. They are known as the “toxic trio” among worker advocates.
Dibutyl phthalate, called DBP for short, makes nail polish and other products pliable. In Australia, it is listed as a reproductive toxicant and must be labeled with the phrases “may cause harm to the unborn child” and “possible risk of impaired fertility.” Starting in June, the chemical will be prohibited from cosmetics in that country. It is one of over 1,300 chemicals banned from use in cosmetics in the European Union. But in the United States, where fewer than a dozen chemicals are prohibited in such products, there are no restrictions on DBP.  
Toluene, a type of solvent, helps polish glide on smoothly. But the E.P.A. says in a fact sheet that it can impair cognitive and kidney function. In addition, repeated exposure during pregnancy can “adversely affect the developing fetus,” according to the agency.
Formaldehyde, best known for its use in embalming, is a hardening agent in nail products. In 2011, the National Toxicology Program, part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, labeled it a human carcinogen. By 2016, it will be banned from cosmetics in the European Union.
Cosmetics industry officials say linking the chemicals to manicurists’ health complaints amounts to faulty science.
Dibutyl phthalate, toluene and formaldehyde “have been found to be safe under current conditions of use in the United States,” said Lisa Powers, a spokeswoman for the Personal Care Products Council, the main trade association and lobbying group for the cosmetics industry. 





When Ki Ok Chung, a manicurist who worked in salons for almost two decades, had her fingerprints taken in the early 2000s for her United States citizenship, she made an upsetting discovery: Her prints were almost nonexistent. They had to be taken seven times. She says constant work with files, solvents and emollients is responsible. “I realized my fingerprints had been disappearing,” she said. Today, she cannot touch hot or cold dishes without searing pain.

“I went to the hospital, and I told him, ‘I’m a manicurist,’” said the woman, who declined to give her name because she wanted her medical history to remain private. Her doctor urged her to change jobs. “The chemicals are not healthy for your lungs, your liver, and sometimes they begin cancer,” she recalled. “I was laughing. I said, ‘Who is going to pay my bills?’” She has since miscarried twice more.

“It’s a beautiful industry, it makes people feel better,” Ms. Colon, who owned the salon in Mill Basin, said in an interview, a faint wheeze just audible behind her ready laugh. “But if a lot of people knew the truth behind it, it wouldn’t happen. They wouldn’t go.”




“They come in usually with breathing problems, some symptoms similar to an allergy, and also asthma symptoms — they cannot breathe,” he said during a break between patients this winter. “Judging from the symptoms with these women, it seems that they are either smokers, secondhand smokers or asthma patients, but they are none of the above. They work for nail salons.” In interviews with over 125 nail salon workers, airway ailments like those in Dr. Hwu’s office were ubiquitous.


Some ingredients used in nail products have been tied to cancer, miscarriages, lung diseases and other ailments. The industry has long fought regulations.
