Dibutyl phthalate, toxic carcinogen

2. Cuticle cream is your nail's best friend. Apply some to the base of your nails on a daily basis. This helps to stimulate circulation and promote healthy growth.
3. Soak your cuticles once a week in some warm water. Apply hand cream and manicure gloves overnight for soft and smooth hands. 4. When it comes to filing, use a soft grade natural nail and file nails from the outer edge to the centre - do not "saw" back and forth.
