Check your cosmetics for the presence of “parabens


Very often we go for the best brands and fragrances, often neglecting the key factors.


What are Parabens?


It has been a practice for many many years where manufactures have been adding preservatives to cosmetics.

Parabens have a preservative quality and help maintain the freshness of personal care products to make them
survive for years inDawn_Tobin_makeup_bridal_fashion your cabinet, by keeping fungus and bacteria away and are much valued by manufacturers.
Cosmetics that may contain Paraben are Moisterisers, Hair-care Products, Shaving products and many more.
According to, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals every year.

Despite the evidence connecting Parabens to cancer and other health issues, cosmetic giants are fighting to keep it legal, as it is cheaper than using natural preservatives.

We tend to buy large bottles as they are cheaper. But have you given it a deep thought? Manufactures produce cosmetics in large batches to bring down the cost and save time. The products are stored for many months before they are shipped to distributors, shipping warehouses and many other places. During this time the products go through a lot of changes (heat very often) before it reaches you.

Parabens are usually easy to identify by name, such as methylparaben, propylparaben,  butylparaben, or benzylparaben.


Look out for them!!!!
