Dubai Municipality has denied the rumours about the seriousness of the presence of triphenyl phosphate
in nail polish, saying that the substance has not been banned or restricted worldwide use.
In a statement, the civic body announced: "Dubai Municipality denies the rumour of triphenyl phosphate
danger in nail polish.
But recent evidence shows that some substitute ingredients, such as the plasticizer triphenyl phosphate
(TPHP), also may be harmful.
The culprit is triphenyl phosphate
, also known as TPHP, a chemical which is used to make the polish more flexible.
