We go on a lot about our products being ‘paraben free’, but then it occurred to us that you might not have a clue what parabens are, in the first place. So now comes the time for explanation!

History

Since the 1950’s, parabens have been used as a common preservative in countless beauty and body care products. They are a relatively inexpensive agents that prevent growth of bacteria and mould and have since become a staple in beauty industry.

Dangers

They are a form of synthetic oestrogen mimicking agent and the main reason they receive a lot of negative attention in the press and in medical circles is because their remains were found in breast cancer tissue. It is currently unclear how much of the body exposure to these chemicals can really pose a threat on human health, as no long term results are available Unless the product is labelled ‘paraben free’, there is a quite a potential risk. Parabens often hide under vague names such as fragrances, which can represent hundreds of chemicals.

There are many arguments against the use of parabens and in a world where your body gets exposed to harmful chemicals more than it is exposed to fresh air, limiting your skin’s exposure to harmful chemicals in any way you can, is a welcome relief for all your cells.
