The Importance of Paraben Free Anti Aging Skin Care Products

What are Parabens? Used as an ingredient in many consumer products, cosmetics, toiletries, and medicines, parabens are preservatives that cost little to produce and are designed inhibit the growth of bacteria to extend the shelf life of moisturizers, wrinkle creams, eye serums and a great number of cosmetics.  They are simple and inexpensive for the manufacturer to use, but the cost to a woman’s health is considerable. Commonly added to moisturizers and other face creams, these cheap preservatives have been directly linked to certain health issues such as breast cancer in women by research.

The link between parabens, breast cancer risk, and aging skin

Interest among women for safer cosmetics and skin care originated from a study by scientists in Great Britain at the University of Reading who performed breast tumor toxicology examinations of 20 tissue samples. Researchers discovered that 90% (18 of 20) of samples contained traces of parabens (Darbre, Philippa, Ph.D., Journal of Applied Toxicology, Vol. 28, pp. 561–578, July 2008). The primary suspected cause was underarm deodorants containing these potentially toxic ingredients, because 60% of breast cancer tumors are found in just 20% of the breast area - the area closest to the women's underarm. An updated study published in March 2012 using mastectomy pathological results confirmed the earlier findings. Additionally, studies made scientists ask, “How were parabens getting in to women who did not use underarm deodorant?” The answer was simple: skin lotions are formulated to sink into and penetrate your skin and companies were using parabens as preservatives. Women were rubbing the parabens directly into their skin!

In addition to the breast cancer risk associated with parabens, in a report published in 2006 in Toxicology, a leading scientific medical journal, researchers at Kyoto University found that methylparaben increases skin aging in the presence of ultraviolet light. In particular, the authors discovered that methylparaben has potentially unwanted effects on skin in the presence of ultraviolet radiation as a result of "increased cell death and oxidative stress." Thus, skincare products that claim to fight wrinkles but include methylparaben may actually age you, not diminish the signs of aging - just the opposite of your desired outcome.

More recently products containing parabens are being suspected in male hormone imbalance, early onset of female puberty, and children's allergies. That is because parabens are an estrogen mimic and many body systems are sensitive to estrogen.

Needless to say, when creating a safe, effective, paraben free moisturizer, cleanser, or other skin cream, we feel that it is very important to avoid anything that is going to be toxic to our customers.  A lot of research is going on with parabens now, but until it is complete we are going to avoid using them.  We prefer instead to use preservatives that have a safer, more natural formulation and do not prematurely age skin the way parabens can.

Non-toxic anti-wrinkle products with no fillers and no harmful ingredients

Many “big name” companies promote their anti-aging products with bold claims and seductive packaging. However, a close inspection of the label often reveals that the anti-aging ingredients in these products are almost an after-thought.  The ingredients are mostly either inert, like water, or fillers and preservatives.  Is that what you are paying for – a high percentage of ingredients that at best do nothing and at worse are actually making you age?  Don’t trust the big brands to actually focus on the results you receive.  They are often more interested in meeting sales quotas than your need for a safe skin cream.  We are a smaller company and we want to earn your repeat business. That’s why our formulas contain high-grade potent ingredients to give you the maximum anti-wrinkle effect. For example, our most popular paraben free product, the anti-aging moisturizer cream, Maximum Moisture, contains the strongest effective dosage of hyaluronic acid.  

When it comes to safe skincare formulations for our wrinkle creams, moisturizers, under eye cream, and our entire line of anti-aging products, we never use cheap preservatives, common fillers or fragrances that would cause dilution of the active ingredients. Please read our labels to make the wisest and best informed buying decision on paraben-free creams and products to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help you look younger.
