What is all the fuss about Parabens?

This is an excerpt from Juice Beauty’s Website on the issue of Parabens and their use in cosmetics & skincare products:

The skin care products sitting on your store shelves do so because they are preserved to provide effective protection against a broad-spectrum of contamination from molds, bacteria, yeast and fungi. Since the 1920s, parabens have been the most common preservative system used for thousands of cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical products. In 2004, the safety of this system came into question. Researchers reported that parabens were found within human breast tumors.

Juice Beauty also claims that 64% of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bodies. How’s them apples?

I really appreciate that their products contain DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Co-enzyme 1o. After reading Dr. Perricone’s book,”The Wrinkle Cure: Unlock the Power of Cosmeceuticals for Supple, Youthful Skin,” I actively seek products with these three key ingredients. The latest skin science research has shown these to be beneficial in protecting and improving our ability to develop collagen.

Not only should we put good things on our skin, but Perricone emphasizes that by eating well, our skin will benefit!  You can buy his book at Amazon.com The Wrinkle Cure, or check out his book at your local library.
