You may know that a class of synthetic chemical preservatives known as parabens has been linked to health issues in women, but a recent study has reported that methyl-paraben may accelerate skin aging in the presence of ultraviolet light (sunlight).
So, ironically, certain skin care products containing methylparaben may actually result in more skin aging instead of less!
The study about methylparaben causing skin aging in sunlight was published in the scientific journal Toxicology by researchers at Kyoto university in Japan.
The main health concern with parabens is that they can mimic the effects of estrogens in high doses. This has linked them to breast cancer in women.
Mango Madness Skin Care’s anti-aging skin care products contain no parabens, phthalates, sulfates or petroleum-derived substances.
