Throughout my training as a makeup artist at AVEDA in NYC I was exposed to the harmful chemicals that go into many of the cosmetic products that we use everyday to look more beautiful. These chemicals can remain in your body long after the makeup has been removed and could cause all kinds of health issues. Parabens are one of the most hazardous chemicals.
What are parabens?
Parabens are chemicals that are used as preservatives in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics as well as in food and beverage processing. There are four main types: methyl-ethyl butyl, propyl, and methyl-ethyl. You can find these on the label of your favorite products and replace them with something more efficient. The more complex answer is that parabens can be endocrine disruptors as well as reproductive toxins.
Why should I be concerned?
Because endocrine disruptors and 激光脫毛 – https://www.pushbw.com/user/profile/20826 reproductive toxicants are chemicals that can interfere with hormones and cause disruption to the normal development and growth of reproductive and intelligence capabilities. A typical American woman utilizes 12 personal care products per day, while the average teenage girl consumes 17! Even if you use only some of these products it’s a large amount of harmful chemicals getting into your body every day. Imagine the impact this could be over the course of a lifetime of using makeup. You may think it’s safe because you only apply cosmetics to your body and not inside it. It is crucial to realize that if you put something on your body (i.e. lipstick, makeup glitter, etc.) it is going to be in your body.
Why do I have parabens in my makeup when they’re so hazardous?
Many people believe that the FDA regulates makeup. It is believed that if a product can be purchased at a local drugstore or departmental store, it should be safe. However, this is not always the case. Cosmetics aren’t controlled by any government regulations. The U.S. government does not require companies to conduct safety tests or health studies of cosmetics. Companies can use just about any chemical they choose to use in your makeup and aren’t required to reveal what the chemicals are.
What can I do for my family’s security?
Pay attention to the label The ingredients do not have to be listed on the labels of cosmetics. Cosmetic companies are able to claim that a product is free of parabens if it claims so. Also, keep in mind that claims like “organic”, “natural” or “dermatologist tested” are not controlled for use on cosmetics and don’t mean the product is safe. Do your own research and choose not to purchase or use personal care or cosmetic products that contain these chemicals.
I’m a makeup designer for dancers, cheerleaders, and other performers. I am particularly concerned about the health and safety of teens and children who love and 激光脫毛 – https://www.evrbeauty.com/ use my cosmetics. Teens who are pre-pubescent or pubescent are most at risk from exposure to these harmful chemicals. JAM’s mission has been to create a safer cosmetic option for 激光脫毛 – https://www.evrbeauty.com/ cheerleaders, actors and performers. This is why I am so pleased to announce that, since the fall of 2009 JAM cosmetics are PARABENS FREE!
