Safer Nail Products


 
 

A new study by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) reveals that numerous nail care products sampled in the San Francisco Bay Area are making toxic-free claims that aren’t supported by laboratory testing.

The testing of 25 products provides a “snapshot” of the nail care products market that could lead to further research by DTSC and its partners. DTSC is calling on manufacturers to make accurate claims about what is in their products.

The findings make a case for the importance of DTSC’s Safer Consumer Products Regulations, which are scheduled to go into effect in 2012.
