Many nail polish brands contain some of the most toxic and harmful chemicals. Some are proven to cause cancer (such as formaldehyde) while others are known endocrine disruptors and can be harmful to reproduction (Phthalate - DBP). Mavala nail polishes are worry free – they contain no formaldehyde, no phthalate and no toluene.
Among cancer therapies, chemotherapy drugs aim at destroying cancerous cells. However, as they do not act to selectively destroy cells, they also attack other cells, including skin, hair and nails. Nail problems that appear may be painful, and in some cases can even lead to infections which can become serious.
