Look out for these toxic ingredients in cosmetics that are dangerous and harmful

2 Parabens

Parabens are usually used as preservatives in cosmetics, body washes, deodorants, shampoos, shaving gels, moisturizers etc. The common types of Parabens are Methylparaben (MP), propylparaben (PB) and butylparaben (BP) and are used to prevent the growth of bacteria, mould and yeast.

What most people are unaware about is that these Parabens possess estrogen-mimicking properties and can increase the risk of breast cancer and when your skin absorbs the toxin, it can damage the DNA, cause cell death etc. Make sure you avoid this toxin!
