Pregnancy Safe Nail Polish Remover

You may be wondering if nail polish remover is safe to use during pregnancy. The strong smell of conventional nail polish remover alerts you that it is probably dangerous. Luckily, there are some brands that offer pregnancy safe nail polish remover.

Conventional Nail Polish Remover

Acetone based nail polish remover is often used to remove solvent-based nail polish and acrylic nails. Shellac polish (a hybrid of gel and traditional nail polish) is removed using pure acetone. Acetone is given a score of 4, moderate hazard, in the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. 1  The potential health effects of pure acetone include eye irritation, drying of the skin due to repeat or prolonged exposure, and inhalation of high concentrations may cause nausea, headache, dizziness, unconsciousness, and respiratory tract irritation. 2 Acetone is one of the many harmful chemicals  present in cigarette smoke.

If you are using a solvent-based nail polish while pregnant, at least choose an acetone-free nail polish remover. Non-acetone nail polish removers tend to use ethyl acetate as a substitute. Ethyl acetate is given a score of 4 in the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, indicating moderate hazard. 3 Ethyl acetate can still dry out your hands and nails, but is not as badly as acetone. 4
