I still can’t spell this ridiculous word correctly so I will soon petition Meriam-Webster to simply remove it from their dictionary. PHTHALATES are EDCs that make plastic ‘more plasticky’. Yep. So, in some instances, they make plastics harder to break, in others they make plastics more “loosey goosey”. Either way they are bad -bad-bad. Like bisphenols, they’re everywhere – nail polish, shampoo, deodorant, perfume, hairspray... They are literally referred to as “the everywhere chemical”. Anything that smells pretty or has a fragrance, likely contains a phthalate. Parabens Parabens are poisonous preservatives and antimicrobials which look almost identical to estrogen. Here again, BANNED by every other country on the planet, but ‘ok’ to use here in the US. Parabens saturate the cosmetic industry. They are used for their antimicrobial properties to extend the shelf life of your make-up. Seriously, when was the last time you purchased foundation? Concealer? 1987? Looks, the same, doesn’t it? Parabens easily penetrate skin, bind to estrogen receptors, and wreak all sorts of hormonal havoc. Or cause cancer. Look – poison has a dose. A little poison is one thing but putting poison directly onto your skin day after day, year after year...well, it’s just begging for problems. Paraben content isn’t particularly covert. If it sounds like or contains the word ‘paraben’, don’t use it.

· Methylparaben

· Ethylparaben

· Propylparaben

· Butylparaben

· Heptylparaben

· Isobutylparaben

· Isopropylparaben

· Benzylparaben
