WHAT ARE PARABENS?
Parabens (p-hydroxybenzoic) are used in many cosmetic products as preservatives. They prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, fungus and other microbes from growing and extends shelf-life. Parabens can be listed on products as methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, butylparaben, heptylparaben, isobutylparaben, benzylparaben and isopropylparaben. These are just some of the chemical compounds, most of which can be easily identified by the “paraben” suffix.
INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY
There are no scientific studies to prove that paraben cause breast cancer. Parabens are hormone-mimicking chemicals that act like estrogen. Such chemicals have been linked to breast cancer and fertility problems. As a pre-cautious measure, you should limit exposure to products that contains paraben. However, there is no published studies to indicate parabens effect on human health.
