Parabens: Not So Bad After All?

Parabens have a bad rep…but is it undeserved? Yes, according to a study performed by Europe’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety.

After conducting tests on mice, using propylparaben and butylparaben (two common parabens used as preservatives in numerous grooming products), the group concluded that mammals metabolize parabens before the chemicals have a chance to enter the bloodstream – and thus, parabens are unlikely to cause cancer and other health problems.
