I have been aware of the dangers of Parabens for quite sometime but after studying and researching this I have made a conscious effort to change all my products.
Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products such as deodorants, moisturizers and shampoos. Common parabens include methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben. Parabens allow skin care products to survive for months or even years in your medicine cabinet; however, they also enter your body through your skin when you use these products. According to Mercola.com, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals every year. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body and disrupt functions of the endocrine system and also:
- Early puberty
- Decreased sperm level
- Dangerous to pregnant women affecting the development of the fetus
- The list goes on….
I care about what I put in my body so why not what I put on my body?!?
It really was so simple for me to swap all my products over and start using safe botanically based products that in my opionion are the best skincare products ive ever used.
