The Hidden Dangers of VOCs in Nail Salons & The Safer Alternative

The Hidden Dangers of VOCs in Nail Salons

Are you concerned about the air quality during your nail salon visits? Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs, are not just a buzzword—they are a real health concern, especially in environments like nail salons where exposure levels can reach dangerous levels.

What Are VOCs?

VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are compounds that easily become vapors or gases. They are emitted by a wide array of products we use every day, from paint and cleaning supplies to personal care products like hairspray and cosmetics—including nail salon products.

How Are VOCs Present in Nail Salons?

In nail salons, VOCs are released from various products such as nail polishes, removers, adhesives, and hardeners. The distinctive strong smell associated with nail treatments is due to these chemicals hovering in the air.

Despite efforts to improve ventilation, it’s nearly impossible to eliminate exposure as clients are seated close to the source of emissions. Regular face masks don't filter VOCs and won't be effective in protecting you. Prolonged or frequent exposure can lead to respiratory irritation, headaches, dizziness, and more serious health issues with repeated and long-term exposure.

The Risks of Regular Salon Visits

Regular visits to the nail salon increase your chance of experiencing negative health effects from VOCs. If you find yourself dealing with unexplained allergies, inflammations, or headaches, the salon environment might be a contributing factor.
