PARABEN FREE, do you know what that means?

Parabens are chemicals that are used as preservatives in cosmetics to prevent them from being degraded by the action of microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria; These could be compared to the preservatives that are currently applied to food.

In summary, their main purpose is to keep the microbial load of cosmetics low, so we could consider them the antibiotics in cosmetics.

Where is the problem?

In 2004 oncologists at the University of Reading, Edinburgh, carried out studies with cancerous tissues and in 90% of the samples that came from biopsies of women with breast cancer, there were traces of parabens.

Currently, 80% of the products on the market in the beauty sector contain them.

How do I know if my product has parabens?

These ingredients appear under names that end in paraben, like for example: Benzylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben (E214), Isobutylparaben, Isopropylparaben, Methylparaben (E218), Propylparaben (E216).

What symptoms can I have if I have a reaction to paraben?

Usually there are no symptoms, but they can cause contact dermatitis, redness, inflammation, itching and sore skin, tightness, dryness (especially after showering), etc.
