Dermatologists, skin care experts and (and Dr. Oz) are encouraging us to avoid many chemicals found in our cosmetic products. Those include, Paraben, Phthalate, Petrolatum, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Thimerosal, Oxybenzone, Triclosan and Synthetic Fragrances. That is quite a list!
The best method is to type in the brand name of the cosmetics or products that you use or have a question about like Mitchum or Burt’s Bees. If you don’t narrow it down, there is so much information to sort through!
To search popular stores for chemical-free makeup:
ULTA Beauty – in the search bar, type in Paraben free for a long list of products offered.
Sephora has 94 products listed as Paraben free on their website with many familiar brands.
Drugstore.com – type Paraben free in the search bar to see what they offer. Their sister site- Beauty.com also has 639 results for Paraben free. You can click over from the top of the Drugstore.com website .
When making choices about your cosmetics and beauty products, choose the safest!
