If you are concerned about the preservatives known as parabens that are commonly found in traditional types of sunscreen, now you have a solution: use paraben free sunscreen. The Colorescience crew has put together this selection of chemical free sunscreens that are both safe and effective, and none of them contain parabens.
Whether you are looking for a cream formulation or brush-on powder, for your face or your whole body, now you can shop with confidence knowing you're getting a high quality product from a trusted name in skincare and cosmetics. Now, let's get in to some of the specifics about parabens.
As mentioned earlier, parabens are a type of preservative that is used in many of the makeup and skincare products available today. They each have specific names, such as methylparaben and butylparaben, but they are generally used for the same reason – to preserve the product and prolong its shelf life.
This type of preservative is not just found in makeup. Parabens are present in some processed foods and pharmaceuticals for similar purposes. Basically, parabens are used in a lot of different products so that they will last longer before going bad, which is convenient for both customers and manufacturers that store and ship their goods.
However, paraben free sunscreen in the UK is becoming a big deal lately, along with other forms of skincare, because the truth is we just don't know the full extent of what these preservatives are doing to our skin and body as a whole.
No. The short answer is that Colorescience sunscreens and other UV protectors available here do not contain any type of parabens. You can rest assured that this selection of products is paraben-free.
As mentioned earlier, the scientific community is still working to find out exactly what these parabens are doing to our bodies, but the initial findings aren't good. For example, parabens have been found to interfere with oestrogen and testosterone.
Parabens have also been linked to fertility problems as a result of this interference with reproductive hormones, as well as various other health concerns. It is important to remember that these are only initial findings based on the studies that have been done so far, and we should always evaluate new information as it comes in, but for now it may be best to avoid parabens when possible.
