That’s because the dangers of parabens are well documented, so “paraben free” is a clever marketing term for products that most often still contain toxic ingredients. Don’t be fooled, my friends.
Let’s look closer…
❌ Parabens – all of them – ethylparaben, butylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, heptylparaben, isobutylparaben and isoproylparaben are used as preservatives that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and yeast in topical products. An important job, but read on because they do more than that.
❗️Parabens possess significant estrogen-mimicking properties that are associated with increased risk of breast cancer. These chemicals, directly implicated in breast tumors, are ABSORBED through the skin.

❌ These same chemicals have also been found to slow the production of sperm and lower the testosterone levels in males.
❗️Parabens are still found in thousands of daily use products ranging from drug store brands to high end expensive brands.
It breaks my heart how commonly used these preservatives still are. 𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙙𝙧𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙨𝙖𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙤𝙥𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙘𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙣, 𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙠𝙚𝙚𝙥 𝙔𝙊𝙐 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙗𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙝! ❤️
