Answers about Acetone
After Dr.’s REMEDY got a shout-out in the Huffington Post for our Enriched Remover, so many of you asked about the potential dangers of acetone.
Q: WHAT'S UP WITH ACETONE?
A: Acetone is a harsh smelling and highly flammable liquid solvent used to remove things like nail polish, glue, and paint. Acetone is used to make plastic, fibers, drugs, and other chemicals.
Q: WHY IS ACETONE SO BAD FOR OUR NAILS?
- Acetone leads to extremely dry, damaged, and brittle nails.
- Constant use of products containing acetone leaves our nails with little to no time to recover and grow.
- Acetone has dehydrating aspects that can lead to dry cuticles, which can eventually lead to painful hangnails or even infection.
Q: IS ACETONE DANGEROUS TO MY HEALTH?
A: Breathing moderate-to-high levels of acetone for short periods of time, can cause nose, throat, lung, and eye irritation; headaches; light-headedness; confusion; increased pulse rate; effects on blood; nausea; vomiting; unconsciousness and possibly coma; and shortening of the menstrual cycle in women.
