In my time as a makeup artist at AVEDA in NYC, I learned about the harmful chemicals that are put in many cosmetic products that we use daily to make ourselves more beautiful. These chemicals can remain in your body long after the makeup is gone and could cause all kinds of health issues. One of the most controversial of these chemicals is parabens.
What are the parabens?
Parabens are chemical compounds that are employed as preservatives in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics and also in food and beverage processing. There are four main types: methyl-ethyl, propyl and propyl parabens. You can look for them on the labels of your favorite products and then replace them with something else more efficient. The more complex solution is that parabens are believed be endocrine disruptors and reproductive poisons.
Why should I care?
Endocrine disruptors or reproductive toxins are chemicals that interfere with hormones and hinder normal growth and development. A typical American woman utilizes 12 personal care products every day while the average teenager consumes 17! Even if you use only a few of these products this is a significant amount of harmful chemicals getting into your body on a daily basis. Imagine the effect this could be over the course of a lifetime of wearing makeup. You may think you’re safe because cosmetics are only put on your body. It is important to know that if you put something onto your body (i.e. glitter, lipstick, makeup, and the like, are going into your body.
If parabens can be so harmful, why are they in my makeup?
A lot of people think that a government agency, such as the FDA, regulates what goes into your makeup. If you can purchase an item at your local department store or drugstore it is safe. This isn’t always situation. There is a lack of government regulation of cosmetics. Companies are not required by the U.S. government to perform health studies or conduct pre-market tests for safety on cosmetics. Companies are able to use nearly every chemical they want in your makeup and aren’t required to disclose to you what those chemicals are.
What can I do to ensure my family’s security?
Read the labels carefully – however, not all ingredients have to be listed on cosmetics. Cosmetic companies are proud to boast that a product is paraben-free if the label claims so. Keep in mind that claims like “organic” natural, natural, or dermatologist-tested, are not permitted in cosmetics. This does not mean that the product is safe. Do you research and refuse to buy or use cosmetics or personal care products that contain these untested chemicals.
As a creator 脫毛 – https://www.evrbeauty.com/ of cosmetics for cheerleaders and dancers and actors, I am particularly concerned about the health of children and teens who use and love my cosmetics! Teens who are pre-pubescent or pubescent are at a higher risk of exposure to these chemicals. JAM’s goal is to provide a safe cosmetic option for cheerleaders, actors and performers. This is why I am happy to announce that since the fall of 2009, JAM cosmetics is free of parabens!
