Parabens are endocrine disruptors; nasty chemicals added to skin care and hygiene products such as: shampoos, conditioners, soaps, makeup, toothpaste, and more because they are cheap and effective as preservatives. They are commonly used because they are quite efficient at fighting off bacteria and other fungi. However; with repeated use, parabens are stored in the body and often cause quite a bit of harm; including breast cancer! They have also been known to cause skin irritations, contact dermatitis, and rosacea. So what’s the take-away point here?
Stop using those harmful, commercially manufactured products that are laden with chemicals and take charge of what you’re applying to your skin. Beauvivo's handcrafted products are anhydrous (do not include water in the finished product) and therefore do not require the use of preservatives. We are proud to say our products are preservative and paraben free.
