Parabens are apparently the most widely used preservatives in personal care products and the pretty make up products and cosmetics we use. They are found in soaps, moisturisers, shaving creams and deodorants and often come in fancy science names like methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben.
Parabens are used to extend the shelf life of products and to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi which is a good thing. What’s not good though are all the health and environmental concerns including being a hormone disruptor, linked to possible fertility issues and carcinogenic.
At Wholesome Hub, you don’t have to sacrifice your health, the planet’s health or the quality of the personal care products you use as we have many beautiful products all Paraben Free.
