On being a non-toxic nail salon
Buffed Nail Lounge uses nail polish brands that are organic and free from up to 13 harmful chemicals found in a normal polish like Orly and Zoya. Lucky for us, many nail-care brands have successfully eliminated the three most potentially harmful, red-flag chemicals from their formulas: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP, for short), and toluene. These additives have long been used in traditional polishes to help the color better adhere to the nail, but there's now significant research indicating their status as serious health risks. As the customer, ask your local nail salon which level of the non-toxic polish scale their selection falls under and decide what you’re most comfortable with. But for us, most important thing is that your favorite polish should be is free of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene.
Remember, it's about taking care of you -- the safest way.
