Perlier & Parabens
WHY do they insist on putting parabens & sulfates in their products? They preach about how wonderful & nourishing their products are, yet they put in those nasty chemicals. I would love to use the products but I can’t.
This may be true of mint and certain other natural ingredients. However, I believe our biggest concern when desiring natural and clean products is more in regards to the parabens. For those who do not know this about Parabens, they are chemicals that when absorbed into the skin mimic Estrogen and therefore increases Estrogen levels within the body. This is very harmful to any person because high levels of Estrogen have been linked to certain Cancers. This is definiteky an ingredient you do want to avoid in your skincare products. Remember this is true for chikdren too. These parabens are found in products, foods etc. This interferes with the endocrine system which is vital in gour young who are still growing and developing! You should reconsider the meaning of natural and clean!
Got to have some preservatives though. Alternatives are far worse.
So true.. sometimes a little knowledge can be more harmful than none.
I hate their products…. and they way they present them. Luckily, I don’t have to watch them or buy them!
Natural is not all it’s cracked up to be in cosmetics. I love Perlier, but I also use plenty of cosmetics and skin care products that contain – Horrors!!! – scary sounding ingredients. First, the closer to their natural state ingredients are, the more they can potentially cause all sorts of skin irritations and allergic reactions. Know it is in the best interest of these natural cosmetic companies bottom line to create concern and panic among Crunchy Granolas about synthetic ingredients in other skin care lines. They have demonized mineral oil, when it is one of the best, safest and least expensive emollient ingredients around. Peppermint, which is in many lip products, can cause dryness and blistering of the lips. It is a main ingredient in lip plumpers because it is a strong irritant and causes the lips to swell! Studies on lavender, which is in the mint family, has been shown to cause skin cell death on topical application.
It would be awesome if they would evolve out and away from those chemicals that are very harmful!
Yes people always check labels. Most items on HSN have the ingrediants posted on the website item if you look carefully.
parabens are in the ingredients list for the Imperial Honey Drops Moisturizing Body Cream
Perlier stated that the Honey Miel and the White Honey, in the TS, are made from organic honey and do not include parabens.
Wow never new Perlier uses Paraben & sulfates in their products.. Have been using Perlier for years… My favorite is the Honey Meil ones…
Will have to check labels more carefully.
Sulfates make me ITCH ITCH ITCH.
Took me years to realize it was the sulfates in body washes.
Some history on SLS (sulfates):
"It was introduced into the US after World War II as an engine degreaser."
I value my body therefore I mostly use PURE, NATURAL, SINGLE-INGREDIENT products!
They have said that their Imperial and White Honey products are paraben free.
