Here's Why You Should Avoid Parabens in ALL of Your Beauty Products!

Parabens, which are commonly used preservatives in the beauty industry, are classified as endocrine disruptors and can be found in many of your cosmetic products! These parabens interfere with your endocrine system, which is responsible for regulating your metabolism, reproductive processes, and mood. They mimic your hormones and alter the way your endocrine system works. Because of this, parabens have been linked to reproductive issues, birth defects, metabolic issues, and even cancer. When looking at the labels on cosmetic products, look for the words that include ‘paraben’, such as methylparaben or propylparaben.
