The Truth About Parabens

Parabens in skin care… Found in almost 90% of all skin care…Are they really that bad?!?

Most people have heard that parabens are bad. But when they are out buying skin care or lotion they don’t REALLY care if there are parabens in there or not. Maybe if people were more educated on what they did to our bodies people WOULD REALLY care.

Parabens are xenoestrogens, which mean they are agents that mimic (and disrupt the production of) estrogen in the body. Your body produces less estrogen because it senses the “fake” estrogen put off by those parabens in your skin. “Estrogen disruption” has been linked to breast cancer. Parabens have been found in malignant breast tumors.

Parabens influence reproductive issues and your hormones. Meaning that if you are having troubles getting pregnant, or have irregular menstration, or have hormonal issues it COULD be because of what you are spreading on your skin!

Parabens are very “sticky” molecules and tend to stay deep own in your pores for long periods of time. They can stay there for anywhere from a few days to a few years! All the while throwing your hormones off and messing with healthy skin function.

As a result, experts in many countries are recommending limits on paraben levels in cosmetic products. What’s more, watchdog organizations worry that if parabens can be stored in the body, over time they could have a cumulative effect and pose a health risk. 

Does YOUR skincare have parabens in it? Go right now, get your cleanser, toner, moisturizer, masks, lotions and look at the ingredients! The most common parabens are: Butylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, but anything chemical that ends with -paraben is what you DON’T want in your skincare!

Now do you care if your skin care has parabens in it or not?
