What the f&*k is "5 Free"? It means that all Bettie Pain Polishes are free of 5 of the nastiest toxic ingredients found in other commercial polish brands. These nasties are:
Toluene - A strong smelling solvent closely associated with paint thinner. Inhalation of this is known nausea, dizziness and fatigue. Not a good thing be breathing in.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) - Commonly used to make plastics and has been banned from children's toys in the EU since 1999.. so do you really want to be putting this on your nails?
Formaldehyde - This toxic substance and carcinogenic has many uses, but with its very strong smell, this chemical is known to cause asthma attacks. Not to mention this chemical is used to preserve dead bodies, ew.
Formaldehyde resin - While this derivative isn't nearly as bad , its still stinks and can cause allergic reactions. Why would you want to risk that?
Camphor - Even though this is a natural substance, it causes yellowing of your nails and can deplete nutrients and nourishment of your nails.
