Avoid parabens in your skin care products!
Susan Evans, MD posted:
If you read a product label that sounds like a bad science experiment, avoid this product altogether! Parabens are common ingredients found in over-the-counter skin care products that have been linked with cancer and toxicity. Instead, look for natural ingredients that will protect and heal your skin instead of causing further damage.

Although there were parabans found in a biopsy in a woman with breast cancer, there was no evidence that the parabans caused the cancer. I was just at a product class that stated it is the long chain parabans that you should avoid, the short chain parabans are not harmful.
stretchyfernia responded:
There are so many ingredients that you need to avoid and one of this is the "artificial smell" . Admittedly,all women are looking for products with good smell but do you know that the better the smell, the more artificial it is? do research on it and you'll be surprised on what you see.
