Why 7-Free is Important:
Bella products are proudly made in the USA. We're "7-Free" - meaning our lacquers are brewed without cancer-causing chemicals including formaldehyde, DBP, toulene, camphor, and formaldehyde resin. Of course when it comes to our nails, we want a long-lasting and chip free formula, BUT we dont want any nasty chemicals - giving us long lasting effects!! Our lacquers are also vegan friendly and cruelty free and do not contain the following.
Formaldehyde: is usually to preserve and embalm the dead. It’s a known as a human carcinogen that can trigger asthma and a factor in causing cancer.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DPB): is used as a plasticizer. It makes materials more flexible and easy to mold or shape. Just imagine, if DBP was absorbed through your nails - It would then enter the bloodstream, to the liver, and so on. If pregnant, it also enters your growing baby which can seriously cause birth defects and reproductive problems.
Toluene: is a chemical that is used as a solvent and has the familiar smell of paint thinner. You can be exposed to toluene by breathing it in or getting it on your skin, causing skin irritation. It also can cause severe damage to the nervous system and harm unborn children.
Camphor: is a poison that can cause seizures and disorientation if used in large doses. This chemical acts as a cover on your nails, depriving them of nutrients and causing yellow staining on your nails.
Formaldehyde Resin: is a derivative of Formaldehyde, mainly used in the production of coatings and adhesives. It is not as toxic as Formaldehyde but can be an allergen. It is not as toxic as Formaldehyde but can be an allergen.
