Nail Salons

A nail salon can be a very toxic environment both for workers and for customers. Solvents and adhesives used to remove nail polish and apply nails accumulate in the air inside a salon. Known contaminants in nail salons include phthalates, acetone, methyl, ethyl and other methacrylates, toluene, xylene, and other alcohols.

These contaminants can lead to confusion, headaches, light-headedness, nausea, and potentially more serious problems such as occupational asthma, fertility problems, and cancer.
