Why Are Parabens Bad?

Parabens are preservatives used in many cosmetic and personal care products. However, some research shows that parabens could play a role in cancer - including breast cancer – possibly because of parabens’ estrogen-like properties. Estrogen is known to play a role in breast cancer and parabens have been found in breast cancer tumors.

On ingredient labels, the various parabens are easily identified: they are all words ending in “paraben” (i.e., methylparaben, propylparaben, or ethylparaben).

For PrevaLeaf, the risk is not worth using parabens. PrevaLeaf products never contain parabens.
