Let's talk Parabens.
We know, it can often sound boring scrolling through an ingredient list. However, Parabens are often found in a wide variety of products and are causing great harm to the body.
Parabens are preservatives that help prevent the growth of microbes (aka, help increase the shelf life of the product.
These chemicals interfere with the body's hormones and can disrupt the endocrine system. It is especially dangerous to young bubs and pregnant women.
What to look for on your labels
Ethylparaben, butylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, other ingredients ending in 'parabens'.
What can we do?
Avoid, avoid, avoid! Look for products labeled 'paraben-free' and make sure to read your ingredient list!
Many natural and organic companies (yes, thats us!) have found effective alternatives to prevent microbial growth in skincare products.
Your skin and overall health will thank you for it! Is it time for you to make the switch? #organicrituals #selfcarerituals
