Thanks to the wide range of non-toxic nail polishes currently available in the beauty market, keeping your nails healthy and gorgeous is easier than ever. By eliminating the use of five harsh chemicals, “5-free” brands like Zoya, RGB Cosmetics, Priti NYC, and Deborah Lippmann are creating a safer and greener environment—one manicure at a time.

For a polish formula to truly be considered 5-free, it must be completely devoid of five known toxic ingredients: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. And because potent fumes won’t be an issue, these formulas are also a safer option for moms and moms-to-be.
