All You Need To Know About Parabens

Over the past five years or so, “parabens” has become a huge buzzword in the beauty world—but it seems like nobody ever tells us the reason. 
Parabens are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics to increase the lifespan of a product. They prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, in order to protect the products.

Why are parabens bad for you?

  1. They cause premature ageing.
  2. Medical experts believe that parabens could be one of the reasons for growth of cancerous tumors in our body. Most deodrants contain parabens, from our underarms to our breast, they spread through absorption and can cause cancer. Those who have history of breast cancer in their family should strictly stay away from products that contain parabens.

I’m  listing down some Paraben Free Brands that are easily availble in India which have taken this great initiative to not use this ingredient and be as natural as possible!

Forest Essentials

 Kama Ayurveda

 Plum goodness

 Biotique

Fab India

 Aroma Magic

 Lotus Herbals

I’m sure there are a lot more but these are just some that I know of.

The reason why people in India are holding back from going completely paraben free is that most paraben free products are expensive and not easily available which is why we’re forced to buy products which contain parabens.

Hope things will change for better, soon!
