Would you eat Parabens ?
Top 3 Reasons to switch NOW to Natural Deodorant!
Parabens! They are the chemical substance that acts as the preservative in the beauty and cosmetics products i.e. body lotions, deodorants’, mascara, shampoos, and foundations. Once you apply them on your skin, these are quickly absorbed into your bloodstream just like the nutrients that you eat. However, are these really what your body needs? Should you really be consuming them? Let’s find out!
1. Hormone Disruptors
Parabens are like estrogen that is already present in our body; and excess of estrogen like substances in the body results in disruption and dysfunction of the hormonal system. This disorder and dysfunction gives way to more misbalances and problems in the human body. Hormones present in the human body are accountable for many human functions i.e. digestion, reproduction, and secretion and that should be enough to tell you how a misbalance can ruin your day.
2. Early Puberty
Deodorants have become a way of life. We use them every day and irrespective of the age; but is this a good practice? Daily use of these chemicals adversely affects the growing girl’s body which is changing in both ways: physically and hormonally. So, the use of parabens is dangerous for a growing girl as its exposure leads to early puberty, early breast development, and early commencement of menstrual cycle.
3. Hormonal Cancers
As already discussed, parabens are highly similar to estrogen and thus use of parabens leads to a number of cancers like cervical and ovarian cancer. Moreover, its longer exposure may even lead to breast cancer.
