Parabens – A Dangerous Chemicals in Cosmetics
Do you know that none of Cocochoco products contain parabens?
A lot of beauty andpersonal care products contain many harmful ingredients, and one ofthe most harmful are definitely parabens.
Parabens were first introduced in 1923 and by the middle of thecentury were used in the food and personal care industries. Today, parabens canbe found in various products – deodorants, facial cleansing gels, shampoos and even the food.
In cosmetics, parabens are used as preservatives that extend expiration date and prevent the growth of fungi and bacteria.
However, the problem with parabens is that they can easily enter our body through skin, and then become very harmful to our health. Except the fact they can cause a lot of skin conditions, such as irritation, rash, dermatitis and inflammations, the researches have shown that they can even cause cancer! Parabens can act like the hormone estrogen in the body and disrupt the normal function of hormone systems affecting male and female reproductive system functioning. They can potentially lead to increased risk for breast cancer and skin cancer.
Parabens are not only harmful to humans, but also to the environment. In one scientific study, they were also found in the bodies of marine mammals.
