With the growth of organic products, the synthetic compounds like propylparaben
and butylparaben are not considered to be safe to be used.
There are many kinds of parabens such as butylparaben, isobutylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben
, isopropylparaben, and benzylparaben, each with its own characteristics.
Some of the most commonly used parabens are: butylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben
. Parabens are known to be absorbed into the body and remain in tissue.
The European Union has banned over 1300 chemicals from being used in cosmetics, which include quaternium-15 and propylparaben
, primarily used in various lotions and hair care products.
These chemicals include triclosan, formaldehyde, toluene, butylparaben, propylparaben
, dibutyl phthalate, diethyl phthalate and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs).
With the personal care products, two synthetic preservatives were analysed (methylparaben and propylparaben
), both widely used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
The most common names to look out for are butylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben
The most common names to look out for in the ingredients are butylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben
. WHY ARE PEOPLE WORRIED ABOUT THEM?
You will see parabens near the end of the ingredient list usually as 'methylparaben' or 'propylparaben
.' Luckily, there are many great paraben-free products out there.
Synopsis: All of us have had the experience of looking at the back of our facial moisturizer or body cream and, despite claims about "natural", the ingredients on the package, seen complicated additives like Isopropyl Myristate, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
, Sodium Benzoate, Triethanolamine, Diazolidinyl Urea,(Red 40) CI74.340.
ICCs computed using these random spots samples were lower than 0.6, except for 2,5-dichlorophenol (0.85; 95% CI: 0.69, 1.00), methylparaben (0.85; 95% CI: 0.68, 1.00), and propylparaben
(0.70; 0.40, 1.00) (Table 5).
Many household items such as cleaning products, air fresheners, bath products, toothpaste and mouthwashes contain different toxic chemicals, including parabens (e.g., methylparaben, propylparaben
, and butylparaben).
