It is alarming to know that some brands have Parabens in almost all their products – even in their intimate wash liquids. We need to be cautious about them and restrict them from using every day as continuous usage will lead to a toxic buildup of chemicals in our body. I’m not biased or believe that Parabens are the only chemicals that are dangerous. However, anyone who is even slightly inclined to beauty blogging will agree that these are the first to look for.
There are such few of the products from each brand. I haven’t looked at the ingredients of all their products but this will know what to look out for in these brands. There are many products that don’t have Parabens in them but contain Urea, which is equally dangerous.
Let’s be aware of what we are putting on our skin. Looking at the ingredients and being aware of it is the first step in safeguarding ourselves.

What are your thoughts on Parabens in skincare products? Do comment below and let us know.

    We should be aware of all the ingredients our beauty products have in them. This was an alarming post 🙂

    • http://shadesofaduskywoman.com/ Sudhaa Gopinath

      True, Mariyam. We should at the least make sure all the brands at least disclose the ingredients used. Please check out this post I published today. It is along these lines : http://shadesofaduskywoman.com/lakme-ingredients/

  • http://www.beautynyx.com Sangeeta

    What's more alarming is that a lot of brands claim to be natural and they have parabens!

    • http://shadesofaduskywoman.com/ Sudhaa Gopinath

      True, Sangeeta. None of the so-called natural products are actually natural.

  • Anamika Chattopadhyaya
