ur skin is the most delicate part of our body. We should always make the best choice for our skin when it comes to picking out the skincare products. Certain harmful chemicals present in the skincare products can react badly on the skin and cause inflammations, allergies, acne and so forth. Their usage over the time may do irreversible damage to the skin by accelerating the ageing process and causing fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, etc,.
One such harmful chemical that is widely found in skincare products is paraben. The most common types of paraben are – methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben. You will find them in a lot of cosmetic products that you use on a daily basis, for example – soaps, shower gels, deodorants, makeup, etc. As stated by FDA, “Parabens are a family of related chemicals that are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetic products. Preservatives may be used in cosmetics to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and mold, in order to protect both the products and consumers.”
People who have sensitive skin, rosacea, dermatitis or eczema are strictly advised by the dermatologists to avoid the use of products containing parabens. The first usage of parabens dates back to the year 1950. In the recent times, its usage in cosmetics has become very common. You will rarely find a cosmetic brand with an approach to make products for their customers that are paraben free.
So what exactly is paraben free skincare and is it beneficial for your skin?
By paraben free skincare, we are referring to the skincare products which are made without the use of parabens. As there are many harmful effects of parabens, the elimination of parabens from the ingredients definitely adds many benefits to the product.
Here are some of the benefits of using paraben free skincare products –
1. Wards Off Negative Side Effects
There are many side effects reported due to the exposure of skin to parabens. The side effects include severe skin conditions like dermatitis and rosacea. Products containing parabens trigger allergies and make your skin look inflamed. If your skin starts to turn red after using a specific skincare product, then you should take a look at its ingredients list and search for any words ending with “parabens”. They are usually the ones to blame for skin flares.
You will not experience any such issues with your skin once you switch over to paraben free skincare products.
2. Lower Risk Of Cancer
Paraben, after getting absorbed by the skin, introduces a hormone named “Oestrogen” in our body. This hormone, which is similar to “Estrogen” may cause sensitive endocrine imbalance, which can lead to cancer and various other complications.
Researchers have found parabens present in the breast cancer cells. Although, the result of the research conducted is not clear at the moment, it is still a better choice to stay away from parabens and obtain the countless benefits of paraben free skincare products.
3. Lower Risk of Reproductive Complications
There are scientific studies that have linked reproductive complications like low sperm counts and birth defects with paraben. Avoiding this harsh chemical will keep you away from such complications.
4. Reduced Possibility Of Early Onset Puberty
Paraben can enter your inside your body as soon as it is applied to your skin. Paraben, having xenoestrogen effect, is known to cause estrogen disruption which is the mainspring of early puberty and breast cancer.
5. Increased Anti-Aging Benefits
Additional anti-aging benefits can be derived from a skincare product if it is free of parabens.
As it is not possible to keep away the bacteria from cosmetic products and make them stay usable for longer periods, adding a preservative to them becomes a must. To preserve the skincare products for long, a natural preservative may be used in place of parabens. Natural preservatives are a great alternative to parabens as they do not cause any harm to the skin. They come with a lot of skin rewarding properties as well.
