Women of Color already have a tough time finding beauty products that work for their skin tones but unfortunately, many of those beauty products are extremely harmful causing disruption of hormones and possible risks of breast cancer. The latest studies reveal that this link is no longer in question. Click the articles below to read more.

Cosmetics targeting black women are more likely to contain potentially harmful ingredients than those marketed to the general public, according to a study published December 6, 2016 by the non-profit Environmental Working Group.

The non-profit Environmental Working Group or EWG has also confirmed these chemicals present in nail polish and other beauty products and provides extensive research on the affects on the body. Click article to read more.

All OOO Polish products are purchased from only two reputable suppliers located in California and Illinois. These businesses have supplied 8-Free products since 1995 and 1997. In the state of California it is illegal to use any products that cause birth defects and another other harmful effects to the body. This is the only supplier I use and they must provide purchasers with their MSDS sheet which lists all the ingredients used and their potential harm. As you can see below the products I use do not cause ANY harmful effects.
