Paraben Free Cosmetics List - Stop Poisoning Yourself!!




  • Look better and live longer, go Paraben free!
  • Stop poisoning yourself with deadly chemicals and preservatives.
  • Read labels and become an empowered consumer.


What Are Parabens?


Parabens are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. These compounds, and their salts, are used primarily for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties. They can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, personal lubricants, topical/parenteral pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution, makeup,and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives.

They are becoming increasingly controversial, however, because they have been found in extremely low concentrations in breast cancer tumors (an average of 20 nanograms/g of tissue). Parabens have also displayed the ability to slightly mimic estrogen (a hormone known to play a role in the development of breast cancer).No effective direct links between parabens and cancer have been established, however.

Allergic Reactions:

In individuals with normal skin, parabens are, for the most part, non-irritating and non-sensitizing. Parabens can, however, cause skin irritation and contact dermatitis and rosacea in individuals with paraben allergies, a small percentage of the general population


Breast Cancer:

 Average levels of 20 nanograms/gram of parabens have been detected in a small sample of 20 breast tumors.

These findings, along with the demonstrated ability of some parabens to partially mimic estrogen, a hormone known to play a role in the development of breast cancers, have led some scientists to conclude that the presence of parabens may be associated with the occurrence of breast cancer.

The lead researcher of the UK study, molecular biologist Philippa Darbre, reported that the ester-bearing form of the parabens found in the tumors indicate that they came from something applied to the skin, such as an underarm deodorant, cream or body spray, and stated that the results helped to explain why up to 60% of all breast tumors are found in just one-fifth of the breast - the upper-outer quadrant, nearest the underarm.

From this research it is not possible to say whether parabens actually caused these tumors, but they may certainly be associated with the overall rise in breast cancer cases. Given that breast cancer is a large killer of women and a very high percentage of young women use underarm deodorants.

A 2004 study at Northwestern University found that an earlier age of breast cancer diagnosis related to more frequent use of antiperspirants/deodorants and underarm shaving."I personally feel there is a very strong correlation between the underarm hygiene habits and breast cancer," said immunologist Dr. Kris McGrath, the author of the study.This research has fueled a popular belief that the parabens in underarm deodorants and other cosmetics can migrate into breast tissue and contribute to the development of tumors.

No direct evidence of a causal link between parabens and cancer, however, has been shown. 
 

Sun Exposure:

Studies indicate that methylparaben applied on the skin may react with UVB leading to increased skin aging and DNA damage.

Regulation:

The European Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP) stated in 2006 that the available data on parabens do not enable a decisive response to the question of whether propyl, butyl and isobutyl paraben can be safely used in cosmetic products at individual concentrations up to 0.4%, which is the allowed limit in the EU.

Controversy:

The mainstream cosmetic industry believes that parabens, like most cosmetic ingredients, are safe based on their long term use and safety record and recent scientific studies. Public interest organizations which raise awareness about cosmetic ingredients believe that further research is necessary to determine the safety of parabens. The concerns about endocrine disruptors have led consumers and companies to search for paraben free alternatives. Grapefruit seed extract that is promoted as a natural preservative was identified as containing artificial preservatives such as methylparaben.


I am sure to be on the safer side all of you would like to purchase paraben free cosmetics from now on. Scientists have claimed that parabens in cosmetics can be a cause of breast tumour and can also increase aging!

How to Find Paraben-Free Products?

Parabens are chemicals often used in body care products and cosmetics for their preservative and antimicrobial benefits and are deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    1. Check the label of your current moisturizer. Look for any ingredients like propylparaben, ethylparaben and butylparaben, which are commonly used parabens. Check the Internet or check with the FDA for other paraben names.
    2. Understand that companies say they use some form of parabens to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination. Many don't consider it harmful and have no qualms about adding it to their ingredients label. However, there is also evidence that parabens may disrupt the body's hormone systems by duplicating the effects of estrogen. These "preservatives" are in our salad dressing, mustard, mayonnaise, jam, soft drinks, candy and more.
    3. In case of cosmetics check the labels for these terms: Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Benzyl-parahydroxybenzoic acid, Methyl-parahydroxybenzoic acid, Ethyl-parahydroxybenzoic acid, Propyl-parahydroxybenzoic acid, Butyl-parahydroxybenzoic acid, Parahydroxybenzoic acid and Parahydroxybenzoate. They are all forms of parabens. If possible, get rid of everything in your house with those ingredients.
    4. Start buying paraben-free products. The Internet is a vast resource for the consumer who wants safe, chemical-free products and food items.
    5. paraben Don't be misled by the front label. Among the ingredients, printed in small letters at the bottom of the back label is where you will find the parabens family.
    6.  Go online and search for paraben-free. Usually, if a product is paraben-free the manufacturer will say so, but check the ingredients list and product description just in case.
    7. Be educated. Household cleaning products aren't required to disclose ingredients unless they contain antimicrobial pesticides, like disinfectants. Makers of cosmetics are required to list their ingredients unless it is fragrance and that is exempt as a "trade secret."
    8. Read product reviews from other customers before you buy to find the right moisturizer for you
    9. Stop by your local Whole Foods or health food store to find paraben-free moisturizer. Most will have a body care section with a decent selection. Or, check with your local drugstore or department store and ask about paraben-free options.
    10. Try different paraben-free moisturizers until you find the right one for your skin. Look for paraben-free body lotions with lots of shea butter and paraben-free facial moisturizers with sunscreen built right in. Become part of the solution. There is food out there that is 100 percent organic actives and free of parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, preservatives and other additives. Parabens have been replaced with grapefruit seed extract and Vitamin E in many cosmetics and essential oils like cinnamon, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon and tea tree are being distilled and turned into natural preservatives.

    4. Hi,
      I have a question. I am currently using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture with SPF 15 for oily skin. I noticed that the pack mentions these preservatives: Methyl hydroxybenzoate, Ethyl hydroxybenzoate, Isopropyl hydroxybenzoate, Butyl hydroxybenzoate and Phenoxyethanol.

      Are these parabens as well? If so, I need to discontinue using this product. In that case, could you please suggest any oil-free moisturizer for my acne-prone skin?
      Thanks in advance.

    5. Hi Oindrila,

      Paraben is a generic term for p-hydroxybenzoate esters. Due to their low toxicity in the human body, as well as antiseptic and mold proofing effects, parabens are used as preservatives in medicines, cosmetics, and foods.These 4 are parabens: methyl p-hydroxybenzoate, ethyl p-hydroxybenzoate, propyl p-hydroxybenzoate, and butyl p-hydroxybenzoate.

      Phenoxyethanol is another component used as a germicide and antiseptic in cosmetics. It is a naturallyoccurring compound that is found in substances such as green tea.

      Phenoxyethanol is often used in combination with parabens in cosmetics to reduce the added paraben content.


      A good paraben free moisturiser is SebaMed Clearface Clear Gel. All Sebamed products are Paraben Free. You can also try Ayurveda from Biotique, Lotus Herbals, Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel, Suparna Trikha, Vedic Line, The Nature's Co and Sunscreens from the same brands.

    6. Hi!
      Thanks a lot for your help!! Extremely grateful to you :-) I was planning to buy the Lotus Herbals Alphamoist moisturizer but the ingredient list clearly mentions parabens, so I will settle for SebaMed :-)

      I have another query. I am currently using this product: http://www.khadinatural.com/khadi-herbal-shikakai-shampoo_pid_66.html I would be grateful if you tell me if the Khadi herbal Shikakai shampoo is paraben-free and sulphate-free? It has improved my hair texture a lot and also controlled hair fall but I am not sure about the sls, sulphates , parabens etc since these are not mentioned on the bottle. Are all Khadi shampoos paraben-free?

      ReplyDelete
    7. Hi Oindrilla,

      Your'e welcome Sebamed products are also my favourite and I don't walk outside my house without their sunscreen. As per Khadi website they have a shampoo labeled as "Paraben Free Shampoo" which is in green colour...other shampoo's are also herbal shampoo's but they may have parabens :(

    8. Hi ma'am,
      Which Sebamed Sunscreen are you using? I would love to know. I do have some brown spots creeping up on my cheekbone primariy due to negligence of not using sunscreen for many years which I am doing now. Am using the Lotus SPF 50 matte gel right now which suits my sensitive oily skin, but open to your suggestions. :-) Khadi seems to mention something as "Base Q.S." but it seems they do not list all the ingredients. I will try looking for their paraben-free variant. Thanks a lot for answering all my queries patiently. :-D

    9. Hi Oindrila,

      I use SebaMed 30+high SUN CARE MULTI PROTECT SUN LOTION. It is also available in SPF 6, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50 and 50+. I somehow enjoying 30+ because it is a lighweight formula in a spray bottle and it non-greasy ...love it :)

      The brown spots that you have on your chin are freckles they generally don't go once they appear on your face. You need to apply a sunscreen everyday so that new ones don't appear :)

      I am using Sonya Cosmetics by Forever Living Products, it is paraben free and has tabilized Aloe Vera Gel, a very high quality vegetable aloe vera (not ordinary kind). We have a new BB cream that is infused with the goodness of aloe. It has sunscreen spf20 for nude and spf10 for cocoa. It hydrates, primes,conceals,and offers sun protection while creating a soft matte, luminous glow. So you look flawless and not like having a cake o your face :-)

    16. Hi there! Thank you for this informative post, you did a great job, and I admire you for spreading the word on the harmful effects of parabens in our everyday cosmetics and lotions!

      Just an FYI though, Lorac cosmetics are NOT paraben free. :-(

    17. Surabhi, I love that you put this list together. I am always helping friends find paraben free products, makeup and other, so I love that you have shared your list with everyone. One thing though, Laura Geller is definitely NOT paraben free. Recently tried to buy some of her products and all had parabens. Checked ingredients on their website as well, and most products have parabens. They may have a few products without, but certainly not all. Also, missing from your list is Pur Minerals, which has been actively removing parabens and I believe, is now completely (or close to) paraben free. They have some great products like their 4-in-1 foundation powder.

      Cheers!

    29. This is a great article and I did not know that Paraben products had this affect. It makes sense though since they use a lot of products have some of the same solutions included in them. It is really amazing how much improvement we have made in the development of useful chemicals. There are a lot of products out here using safer chemicals. For example, the chemical such as Biomedical Polymer has done some really great things.

      1. Hello Barkha,

        Melawash is meant to be used in case you have Stubborn Acne marks, Pigmentation or discoloration due to aging. Sebamed gel is for maintaining a balanced ph level in your skin so that you don't break out!! so, you can use both of them alternatively.

        Bourjois is a good range but I think it is not paraben free. I used their BB Cream, its nice but its more like a cakey foundation.

      2. Hey Surabhi,

        I bought Melawash on your recommendation and have started using since 2 days. Feels better.

        But my hunt for foundation or bb cream is on.I want to go totally safe for my sensitive skin. Can you suggest any one just to begin blindly with. Or can i just add concealer to my moisturiser

        Had also checked your review about The body shop bb cream, what is u r call on that.

      3. Hello Barkha,

        Melawash is great keep using it!!....Sadly of you have oily acne prone skin...then BB Cream is just not meant for you...however the Body Shop BB Cream is one the best available to India!!

        Use a foundation after applying clear skin clear gel from sebamed better than any BB cream!! :)

        Delete
      4. Thanks surabhi for your prompt response. Yes i shall continue melawash as i am really satisfied in 4 applications.

        Shall i go with Inglot YSM cream foundation Or NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation
        with NYX hd concealer medium?

        Delete
      5. Sure, Barkha!! Inglot YSM cream foundation Or NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation will be great choice both are cruelty free products!!

    45. Hello Surabhi!
      Thank you for a well-written and informative artcile.

      I've got one question which regards Himalaya cosmetics: does Organique by Himalaya belong to the Himalaya cosmetics line? I see that you had repliedc on one of the comments that Himalaya products aren't free for parabens - so I wanted to clarify this on order to be sure. Thanks in advance!

      Best regards, Zlata

      Just chanced across this post! Informative! Thanks a ton for listing the products. Have you also used Omved products? They are also completely natural and paraben free. I am a blogger too who promotes all things organic on my blog and a search led me to your blog. Since we share the same interests, I thought I should let you know.

    49. Hey there!

      Firstly, your blog is really Cool!

      Thank you for taking out time to write all this. I must add that Tarte is good mainstream brand using Paraben free and natural products. So are many products from Urban Decay. Some other great natural brands are RMS cosmetics, jane iredale , 100% Pure, Josie Maran, Juice Beauty, Youngblood Cosmetics and many more. Bite Beauty apparently has invented a nearly edible lipstick. All these brands can be purchased online.

      I am trying to chalk out Paraben loaded beauty products slowly one by one and turning towards Green Makeup!

      Thanks once again! I bookmarked your Blog :)

        Have you ever tried Sheer Cover? I used it throughout my travel it's magical!! plus They're cruelty free, paraben free and totally vegan!

        Sheer Cover is different from many cosmetic products because creates a light sheer finish on the skin yet is perfect for covering, concealing or correcting the appearance of any imperfections

I fell in love with them while I was in India, but while searching to see if the formula is the same in the States (we tend to put a lot more chemicals in everything) even their website just repeats "herbal," but does not strictly say paraben free, or list ingredients so that I can check Skin Deep.
