Parabens! Did you know parabens are one of the most harmful chemicals for your hair?
They are easily absorbed through the skin and can cause severe damage to your scalp.
But what are they exactly?
Paraben is a general term used to describe a large list of chemicals. These chemicals include ethylparaben, isobutyl paraben, isopropyl paraben, etc. All of these chemicals can be found in popular cosmetic brands. Parabens are used to increase the shelf life of products. They serve as a deterrent against harmful bacteria, mold, and fungi.
How will Parabens damage your health?
Parabens are one of the deadliest legal substances companies are allowed to put into their products. The compound can cause increased estrogen in the body, which is detrimental to both the health of men and women. With artificial estrogen being circulated in the bloodstream, some women can experience breast cell division and the growth of tumors. Increased levels of estrogen in men can cause lethargic behavior, man boobs, increased stomach fat and depression.
