“Breast Cancer Awareness and Parabens”

Check your
products at home and if you see any form of “Paraben” on the ingredient list, that is a harsh chemical going right into
your body and know that the Jan’ 04 Journal of Applied Toxicology reported Parabens in 18 of 20 breast cancer tumors!!


Widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry (including moisturizers). An estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products contain parabens. Studies implicate their connection with cancer. They have hormone-disrupting qualities -- mimicking estrogen -- and interfere with the body's endocrine system. Tested - 18 out of 20 breast cancer tumors contain high levels of parabens.
Just like the stop smoking patch, birth control patch or heart patch, everyday products like body washes, soaps, lotions and moisturizers, release chemicals into the bloodstream.

Because your skin has the ability to absorb whatever you put on it, careful choices are critical. You want to give your skin the same thoughtful care you give your internal organs.
Potential toxins used in the name of beauty -- not a fair trade...
Yet many skin care products use ingredients with unrecognizable and unpronounceable names.
It is well-proven that when you apply these chemicals to your skin, they enter your bloodstream and become integrated into your body tissues.
Potentially harmful ingredients continue to be used. Why? Because they are cheap, readily available, and easily diluted.
Other harmful ingredients include: Sulfates, Petroleum, Mineral Oil, DEA, Isopropyl Alcohol, Phthalates, Artificial or Synthetic Colors.
