Emotionally speaking, parachutes are fun and exciting, paranormal activity movies are scary but if we start talking about facts, one thing is certain: parabens are bad for you. And if we have to say it again: no, no, no and no to them!!!
You will probably think: “what’s the problem with them?” Well, it’s big!
Let’s start from the beginning and find out what parabens actually are. Don’t worry! We won’t give you a chemistry lecture but there are a few things that you need to know.
Parabens are a type of preservative that prevents proliferation of bacteria… and other unpleasant microorganisms. Which doesn’t sound that bad, but don’t rush into conclusions.
Where can you find pa-ra-bens?
In the bathroom, in your bedroom, in your makeup case. They are artificial chemical substances that are used by the cosmetic companies in creams, shampoos, deodorants, makeup, lipsticks, eyeliners, tooth pastes, etc. Of course there are natural alternatives (for example the grapefruit seed exrtract) but these are not the ones that bother the bio eco chics.
To put it shortly while natural preservatives are thought to be not that effective, it is said that artificial parabens mess with the hormones in your body. Natural parabens are easily assimilated by the body, something that doesn’t apply to those created in laboratories. The artificial ones are absorbed through the skin in a much more concentrated amount and can lead to serious problems.
That’s why we refuse to have parabens in our bodies. And the same applies to your body!
In our opinion skin care should be simple and should contain compounds that may be “eaten” through the skin and through the mouth. Coffee, sugar, cold pressed natural oils… a real feast under the shower. That’s the reason why for your #HashtagBody scrub we choose natural ingredients. In order for your #HashtagBody to be fresh for a longer time, we use vitamin E, one veeery strong natural antioxidant.
Besides our products are not tested on animal. Just on very sexy chicks. If you still haven’t tested our fragrant scrub temptations, you know where to find us.
And of course don’t forget to share your thoughts.
