Parabens used in cosmetics

    


Parabens are a group of chemicals that are widely used as preservatives in cosmetics and personal care products such as deodorants, shower gels and body creams. They effectively prevent the growth of microorganisms. To evaluate if the way they are currently being used is safe, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety has repeatedly over the years reviewed the scientific data on potential health effects. Experimental studies in animals have shown that these parabens have generally low toxicity and that they don’t cause cancers.
