Parabens and products: are they damaging your health?

The debate over Parabens in products and their possible detriments to health has been at the centre of media attention for a number of years now, and has been brought back into the spotlight recently with an article in ‘The Guardian’ last week by beauty expert, Sali Hughes.

Parabens are chemicals that are widely found in beauty products as a means of cheaply fighting off bacteria and fungus in order to prolong the shelf life of the product. Tests have shown, however, that these chemicals may actually be damaging to our health if we come into contact with them frequently. Studies have indicated that too much exposure to the chemicals can harm human cells, and have even been linked to the development of certain types of cancer. This evidence is by no means conclusive, as the evidence for this link is not yet substantial enough to make such an assured claim, and the jury is very much out on the true affects of the Parabens in our products on our bodies.

Even though the true affect of Parabens remains unknown, why use chemicals on your skin when you can’t be 100% sure that they aren’t causing you harm? As Sally Hughes notes in her article, “I’m irritated that Parabens are still so rife when, in most cases, there are quality alternatives that won’t cause people to fret.”

One beauty company that very much fits the bill for providing skincare products that are paraben free, yet work incredibly well is new makeup brand, Eastern Glo. Eastern Glo’s innovative products are not only strictly against animal testing, free from alcohol, suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and halal-conscious women, but are also produced from only natural ingredients, ensuring that they are completely free from these questionable Parabens. With a range consisting of mineral-based lipsticks, eye-shadows, foundation, blusher and the latest beauty innovation, BB cream, in a wide variety of shades, why not be kind to your body and invest in some guilt-free, worry-free beauty treats today?
