Paraben-Free Skincare Made With Natural Ingredients

Parabens have gained a bad reputation over the past few years, with paraben-free skincare rapidly gaining popularity. So, why are they considered so problematic?

Parabens are synthetic preservatives that are often used in cosmetics and skincare. Some experts believe they might disrupt hormones in the body and lead to harm to fertility and reproductive organs. 

There are also concerns they could increase the risk of cancer. Studies have found they elevate cellular level damage caused by UV exposure, which is linked to skin cancer. 

In many people, parabens can cause skin irritations. For instance, one study found that ethylparaben, which is used as an antifungal agent (5%), often causes contact dermatitis. There are already five different parabens that have been completely banned in the EU. 

Fortunately, there are much more paraben-free skincare products available than in the past.
