Researchers (and Dr. Oz) are telling us to avoid Paraben and Phthalate in our shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and skin-care lotions. I found a website that can give you a list of all the products that do not contain these ingredients. You can do your research here at SkinDeep.
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!
You can also search at 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. You can search for products here: Free Shipping on orders over $50. Plus, 3 free samples with every order!
You can also search at Drugstore.com. See what’s new at 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 .
I think we will be hearing more about these ingredients going forward.
