What is the best non-toxic epoxy resin? One of my pet peeves is seeing artists, weekend warriors, and businesses unknowingly use toxic materials on cutting boards, cups, and charcuterie boards. That being said, NOT all epoxies are created equally. Very few epoxies can withstand heat, and when heat is added, this then releases toxicities. Heat can also do other nasty things to your epoxy resin project. But that's a whole other post.

Even though these products are considered non-toxic, you still have to wear disposable Nitrile gloves
, and either 1) work in a ventilated area or 2) wear a respirator. There are still chances you might have an allergic reaction to the resin. Never take a chance when it comes to your health and well-being! Always remember! Safety first!
