In my opinion the EU in general knee jerk reacts to everything and anything having to do with food or health.

I highly doubt that they have sunk an entire industry with the stroke of a pen and since we cannot find out anything about this that it is most likely a regional thing or a newly minted urban legend.

I tend not to listen to second hand information when it comes to industry rules and regulations anyway the rumors usually turn out to be BS.

Nonsense, that's just a silly rumor. If that were true, all artificial nails would be banned because they are all acrylic, without exception. Nor do they cause cancer. There is no evidence of this and that's also silly nonsense. These products aren't listed as such by any regulatory body in the world.

What is true is that on July 12, Europe enacts new cosmetic regulations that will significantly protect nail salons and their clients from unsafe products. From this date, all cosmetic products sold in Europe have to be registered in a central online database, by the Responsible Person (either the manufacturer or first importer into Europe, who can provide detailed ingredient formulation, toxicology data to the medical or legal authorities). In addition, every national product distributor also has to register and upload images of the product labels (so these can be checked to meet the required standard)

This will make detecting unregistered distributors and products containing unsafe ingredients that much easier. This is more important than you may think. In a survey done in Sweden during 2011 and 2012, more than 15 nail products were removed from the market by the authorities because they contain banned ingredients - the products were manufactured mostly in China but also by a factory in Germany. Despite this, there are many other fly-by-night companies selling unregistered products - often nail salons who look to make extra money without wanting to understand the legal and safety requirements.

Europe has banned over 1000 ingredients from cosmetics and the vast majority are not yet banned in the US. Some of the biggies that are in many salon products are petroleum, lead, talc, formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, and parabens. These are just the big ones, there are more than a thousand more.

It's unbelievable to me that the US is so behind on regulating cosmetics. Most women cover themselves in toxic chemicals every day without even knowing it and then we all wonder why cancer rates have skyrocketed...sigh....
