There are more and more people using paraben free facial moisturizers these days, and there's a very good reason why: they are much safer than those containing these harmful additives. 

Parabens are known as synthetic preservatives. They are mainly used in skin creams and other personal care products. However, since most of us really do not have the time to research our grooming products, we don't realize that parabens can be extremely harmful, especially if we exhibit allergic reactions to them. Not only can they cause skin irritation and rashes, but they can also alter estrogen levels and may even cause several different types of cancer. 

So for obvious reasons, it makes sense to shop for paraben free facial moisturizers and creams, as they will be much safer for you in the long run.  Look for ones that also don't contain harmful ingredients such as alcohols, dioxane, acrylamide, fragrances, mineral oil and toluene.  These are all very dangerous chemicals that can cause anything from mild allergic reactions to paralysis, cancer and even death in rare cases.

It's not just the cheaper products on the market that contain these harmful chemical additives either.  Some of the most popular, well-known creams and lotions contain one or more of these ingredients. Even the ones you see advertised on television or in magazines every day. That's why it's so important to read the product labels very carefully and make sure you don't see these additives, especially in products that you are going to use on a daily basis.

Look for paraben free facial moisturizers for starters.  Then scan the ingredient list and make sure the product is all natural.  Look for herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can actually improve your skin's appearance from the inside out.  Powerful natural ingredients can actually get beneath the skin's surface to produce real results, rather than just cover up wrinkles and blemishes temporarily.

If you're not sure whether or not a paraben free hand cream is in fact paraben free, ask the manufacturer.  Send an email or call up the company and ask them about it. A reputable company will be more than willing to explain what's contained within their paraben free facial moisturizers and other products.  If they're not, chances are there are a few ingredients in their skincare line they don't want the public to know about.

So next time you're in the market for some high quality skin care products for your family, make sure they are paraben free...you'll be glad you did.
