So you want to show some “Independence” this 4th of July with your own individuality and style while also being patriotic to your country, at least on a fashion basis, with tried and true red, white and blue. Understandable.
If you are 18 or 45, near the 4th of July, a product like this can make you “starry eyed.” You start thinking this is super cute and packaged all together nicely – it’s a glory purchase.
SWEET LIBERTY, RAISE THE RED FLAG: ORLY scores near very BOTTOM when it comes to being “healthy, or safe.” The Good Guide – www.goodguide.com – is a website with a team of scientists that rate products on a 0 to 10 scale for their health, environment, and social impact. The overall score for a product is an average of the above three scores, and the higher the better. ORLY does NOT score high.
Why? Problematic, banned, or contaminated ingredients. While I don’t have this particular patriotic set of products in front of me to read the ingredients, and ORLY seems to have a line on their site that is at least toulene free, many ingredients linked to toxicity come up in Orly like:
• Tosylamide Formaldehyde Resin
• Bismuth Oxychloride
• D&C Red 34
• D&C Red 6
• D&C Red 7
• Iron Oxide
• Dibutyl Phthalate
• Butyl Acetate
• Stearalkonium Hectorite
• Ethyl Acetate
• Titanium Dioxide
• FD&C Yellow 5
Long May Your Toxic-Free Fashion Flag Wave,
