Why Women Should Choose Organic Skincare

“Why choose organic skincare?

If you are a woman it’s important that you use organic skincare and natural makeup products. Why is this? Recent reports published has shown presence of paraben chemical compounds in 99 percent of breast cancer tissues sampled. This is truly a startling figure and should make all women think twice about what they are putting on their skin.

The research study examined 40 women who were being treated for primary breast cancer. In 60 percent of the cases, five different paraben chemical compounds were present.
In 60 percent of cases, five of the different esters were present.

What are parabens?
Parabens are chemicals which produce estrogen-like properties. In the development of breast cancer estrogen is one of the hormones which is involved. They are used because they are cheap preservatives.

Where are parabens found?
The main way that parabens find their way into breast tissue is through the use of deodorants and antiperspirants. However the study showed that some patients had never used deodorants which had parabens in them. This clearly shows that regardless of what skincare and cosmetic products are used paraben chemical compounds can apparently accumulate in breast tissue.

Why choose organic skincare products?
When you apply a skin cream – have you ever wondered where it goes? It is absorbed via the skin into the blood stream. It then is processed by internal organs. Think about this: how do nicotine patches work? The nicotine is absorbed into the blood stream. Whatever you apply to your skin can absorbed into your body, and over time this can cause damage.
So check you labels. Parabens can be found in shampoos, lotions, skincare creams, food additives and deodorants.

Are natural products always the best?
Check labels carefully. Even cosmetic products that are advertised as natural can also contain paraben chemical compounds. There are butyl, propyl and ethyl parabens.

Effects of aluminium in deodorants
Another danger in deodorants and antiperspirants is the presence of aluminum-based compounds. The purpose of them is to block the sweat glands and not allow sweat to be expelled from the body. Some research studies have suggested that certain types of aluminum compounds may be absorbed by the skin.

They can produce changes in estrogen receptors of breast cells. Some scientists suggest that these aluminum based chemical compounds may be a factor in the development of breast cancer. This happens because estrogen can cause the growth of both cancer and non-cancer breast cells.

Choose natural and organic skincare products. This is the best way to care for your skin.”
