Parabens in Skin Care

Parabens are a commonly used group of preservatives found in skin care products.  While they offer benefits to such products, including protection through antibacterial and antifungal activity and a longer shelf life, they also come with risks and potential side effects.  Parabens can mimic hormones in the body, disrupting the endocrine system.  In fact, studies show that Parabens actually bind to estrogen when applied topically to the skin.  Considering the average woman absorbs approximately five pounds of toxins through the use of beauty products, there is much to consider here.  Since Parabens, by nature, are fat loving chemicals, they build up over time in the fatty tissues of our bodies, which can lead to abnormalities such as early onset puberty and breast cancer.  The goal here is to educate consumer on products they use on a daily basis.  Talk to your aesthetician so that she can help you find safer, more effective products for a more confident, healthier you.

Lasting Looks uses A Natural Difference products for all spa facial treatments and retails the line for your personal home use.  A Natural Difference products do not contain Parabens.
