Parabens, parabens everywhere. I’m surprised that we haven’t all developed mob mentality and run through the streets smiting everything in our path due to our outrage at the evil beauty companies and their wicked parabens.
Now while we’ve all heard that parabens cause cancer and that they’re totally bad for our health and that we’re all going to die if we use them but yet, did you know that statement of parabens causing cancer was retracted due to there being no scientific proof? Did you know that there were absolutely no clinical studies performed to prove that parabens=cancer? I found that pretty interesting and it made me rethink the entire paraben paranoia.
Emmy award winning makeup artist, KJ Bennett, has written a though provoking article about said parabens and it’s worth a read. So ladies, do check out the article here and let me know what you guys think.
