When purchasing hair care and skin care products, do you try to buy paraben-free?
Someone was telling me about the risks of parabens in our hair and skin care products (i.e. shampoo, makeup, hand lotion, soap). Apparently it’s a cheap preservative that is put into products to extend their shelf life, but it’s present in cancer tumors and is, in general, bad news.
Since learning about this, I am now aware of paraben-free products and will look for them when making purchases in the future. There are paraben-free product websites, and there is a lot of information on them online
