Back to Resource Library

The Safer Consumer Products Program of the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), California Environmental Protection Agency, summarizes information from its 2023 call-in on the health effects of nail products.

DTSC has been evaluating nail products for more than ten years based on concerns that nail salon workers, salon patrons, and nail product consumers – including women of childbearing age and pregnant women – may be exposed to harmful chemicals in nail products and may experience significant adverse health impacts. This report summarizes the information reported to DTSC by those nail product
stakeholders that responded to the information call-in request.
