ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the removal of chemicals that are said to be linked with cancers and birth defects from nail polish products. The move by Del Laboratories, OPI Products and Orly International follows criticism from health and environmental groups. The brand, Sally Hansen, which is made by Del Laboratories, said that it would reformulate products to remove dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde and toluene, which are listed on California state's chemicals list that cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.
