When it comes to your skin, you should be always vigilant. What you use every day and what you choose to put on your skin will define your skin’s health. Cosmetics do come with a bunch of chemicals that help give them a long life. Parabens are those chemicals that actually act as preservatives – they are present in almost every product these days, from soaps to shaving creams. The reason they are used so widely is because companies want to increase the shelf life of a product and make sure no bacteria grows in it. Some
say that parabens are a big risk to women – they cause fertility issues and are even linked to breast cancer. But really, right now, there is no real proof whether parabens are really that big an issue. But it makes sense for us to be careful, doesn’t it? Choosing a paraben-free product would mean you are being cautious about what you put on your skin and that’s always a good idea.
