The Truth About Parabens


Ever since my parents became health nuts 10 years ago, we became very particular about what we use and consume. My dad is quite an extremist in this, but I practice such culture moderately.

However, I do agree that since our skin is the largest organ, I take special care in choosing products for the skin.

I will inspect the ingredient label on skincare. In food, the no-nos are trans fat, preservatives and sugar. It is hard to avoid but increasingly more foods have labels indicating free of the above.

Even so, you may need to look closer, as there may be substitutes, like aspartame for sugars, which is then probably worse being artificial sugar.

In skincare, the no-nos when I shop are talc, sodium laureth sulphate and paraben.

Paraben, a chemical used as a preservative in most skincare is cancer causing. Our skin will be absorbing toxic if we use for a long period of body and face moisturizers containing paraben.

L’ESSENCE D’EAU GROUP was founded in 1978, France and is now taking Singapore by storm. They have the magic bubble mask which is a deep cleaning magic bubble mask that helps to remove oils and bacteria from the skin.

Organic ingredients detoxify skin and diminish the appearance of pore. Cloves, tea tree, grape seed and other natural organic botanical extract clean and smooth skin's appearance. 100% biodegradable. This product contains no parabens, phthalates, artificial colors or animal ingredients and was not tested on animals.

This cream is meant to reduce melanin, a pigment that determines the colour of one’s skin and hair. High levels of melanin often result in darker skin tones. This cream would be able to diminish dark spots, etc. Freckles, which are small dots of concentrated melanin, could also fade away with the use of this cream. The use of this cream requires patience; it may take weeks or even months to see results as they are organic ingredients as compared to those harsh chemicals used in other skin care products for faster results.
