It's a fact the world is getting warmer and warmer every day and sometimes it feels like the Earth is moving closer and closer to the sun, but that is not what is happening.
The Earth has a protective layer known as the ozone layer and because of all the harmful gases that are produced in our factories the ozone layer has holes in it and this exposed us to a lot of heat from the sun.
Because of global warming our skins have become sensitive to many things and this means we should pick the products that will not cause any disease or hypersensitive reactions on our skin.
One of the most dangerous ingredients found in most cosmetic and pharmaceutical products are parabens. Most people are not aware of dangers of parabens, and most of these cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries use this ignorance to their advantage. It is sad but it is true.
Parabens are group of chemicals used as preservative by most cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries as I mentioned earlier. These chemicals are cheap and readily available which explains why most of these companies use them; they use them to cut on production costs.
The Dangers of Parabens Explained
Are parabens bad ? Yes...
Scientists have discovered that products that contain paraben tend to interrupt the endocrine system and may cause cancer, breast cancer to exact.
In addition to that, paraben-rich products also cause allergic reactions as well as rashes.
Alternative Preservatives and Products
Fotunately for you and me there are safer alternative preservatives like natural vitamin E that can be used in place of paraben.
