I wrote my last blog Natural is Natural because it is time for everyone to realize that what
we put on or in our bodies is so important. Coming from the cosmetic manufacturing industry, we all used parabens to preserve our products. But by the late 1990’s, a lot of buzz was being spread about the dangers surrounding parabens in skin care as well as color cosmetics. Methylparaben ,ethylparen, propylparaben, and butylparaben were commonly used. Parabens are synthetic preservatives that are being used in personal care, but also food and pharmaceuticals; allowing for longevity of the product and to meet FDA regulations.
