paraben-free skin care
Parabens are used in toiletries and cosmetics to preserve them, parabens help to stop the growth of moulds, fungi & bacteria. The health scare around parabens concerns their ability to mimic the female hormone oestrogen. When paraben based products are applied to the skin some of the parabens are absorbed into the blood stream. Excess oestrogen is thought to stimulate cancer growth and when some researchers found parabens in breast cancer tumours they used this as evidence of a link between breast cancer and parabens.
In reality the results are not quite so conclusive and to date there is a big debate about how dangerous (if at all) these chemicals are. Predictably the scientists sponsored by the big paraben using cosmetic companies say there's no problem with parabens, whilst the scientists working for the organic beauty industry say there is...
Whilst the jury is out on the great paraben debate we'd prefer to avoid them altogether!
Here's a list of the 5 most common parabens: methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben & iso-butylparaben
