All CNC’s UV gels and gel polishes are 15-free. Our goal is to only make nail products with the safest ingredients out there. It is hard to produce natural/ organic nail products, but we have found a way to make UV nail products without the 15 most toxic chemicals.
CNC’s gel polish is free of the toxic trio:
These three chemicals, commonly used in nail products, were first identified as toxic. The following three chemicals could cause some harmful long-term health effects to you or your customer.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
This ingredient is commonly used in nail polish and cosmetic. It is a plasticizer that is used to prevent the polish from chips and cracks. Plasticizers have been proven to be carcinogenic. The substance is also associated with liver, kidney and reproductive system problems.
This ingredient is used as a preservative in UV gel. This chemical gives UV gels that strong odor and can cause allergic reactions, breathing problems and nausea. Formaldehyde is a proven carcinogen.
This chemical is used to help suspend the color and to form a smooth finish. Toluene has not been classified as a carcinogenic, but it has been proven its harmful for the central nervous system. Causes fatigue, dizziness and nausea!
That’s why we don’t use the toxic trio in our UV Gels
We are also 5-free:
Bingo! The toxic trio is gone! What’s next? 5-free! In 5-free UV nail products 2 more toxic harmful chemicals are excluded.
This chemical adds gloss and hardness to nail products. It also helps the UV gel better adhere to the nail. Formaldehyde Resin is a well-known skin allergen and has been proven to cause dermatitis.
This ingredient is used to add more shine and elasticity to UV gels. Exposure to high concentrations of Camphor can cause skin irritations, headaches, dizziness or nausea.
