The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has sought consultation on the Potential Health and Safety Impacts of Chemicals in Nail Products.
This consultation aims to identify formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene, as well as a list of other Candidate Chemicals in nails products for further safety research.
Specifically, this consultation seeks to gather information from stakeholders on the use of potentially hazardous chemicals in nail products, their function and prevalence in these products, and any safer alternatives that are under development or are already in use.
The consultation period is from November 15, 2016 to February 28, 2017.
