Parabens are a group of chemicals commonly used as preservatives in household cleaners and beauty and personal care products. By hindering the growth of bacteria, parabens give products a longer, more stable shelf life. Product ingredient labels typically list more than one paraben in a product, and parabens are often used in combination with other types of preservatives to better protect against a broad range of microorganisms. Did you know that prolonged exposure to parabens can contribute to a wide range of health problems?
Studies have shown that parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, affect birth outcomes, and increase cancer risk (parabens have been found in breast cancer cells, indicating that they may act like estrogen.) They can also cause neurotoxicity and skin irritation. Parabens also pose risks to the environment, having been detected in surface water, fish, and sediment. Laboratory tests proved that low levels of butylparaben could kill coral.
