Why should I worry about parabens...?

Parabens are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives (preservatives give longer shelf life) in the skin care,cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

In people with normal skin, parabens are, for the most part, non-irritating and nonsensitizing. Parabens can, however, cause skin irritation and contact dermatitis and rosacea in individuals with paraben allergies, a small percentage of the general population.

Most of us now spend a lot of time  understand the damage that foods and other substances have on our body.The Skin is largest organ we should really look at what possible damage can be done by products that absorb through the skin and what these products contain.

Health concerns about parabens are primarily focused on their potential to act like estrogen compounds in the body. Substances which behave like estrogens are known as estrogenic compounds, and they do pose some health risks, especially when consumed or used in high volumes. Estrogens primarily impacts the endocrine system, potentially creating an increased cancer risk. People who are worried about parabens argue that their estrogenic traits make them too dangerous to use in food, sin care ,  cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.
