Southern California launches healthy nail salon initiative

A new initiative in Southern California seeks to reward nail salons that make changes to reduce exposure to harmful nail polish additives for employees and customers. The suggested changes include improvements to ventilation, the requirement that workers use heavy-duty gloves and the banning of polishes that contain three additives that are considered particularly dangerous. These chemicals are formaldehyde, tolulene and dibutyl phthalate. To help promote the initiative, the city of Santa Monica is offering free advertising to salons that get rid of polishes containing the toxic ingredients.
