Parabens are a group of preservatives used in cosmetics to prevent bacterial and fungal growth in products that have come under scrutiny in recent years for a possible link to breast cancer in women and allergic reactions in some people. In response to these findings Bon SantÃ© Corp. has released a new line of paraben free, natural skin care and mineral makeup products that utilize organic and naturally derived ingredients.
(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) July 13, 2006 — In response to a study that has indicated the use of personal care products containing parabens may be harmful to a wearerâ€™s health, manufacturer Bon SantÃ© Corp. has released a new line of paraben free, natural skin care and mineral makeup products utilizing organic and naturally derived ingredients. Parabens are a group of preservatives used in cosmetics to prevent bacterial and fungal growth in products, states the company, and they have come under scrutiny in recent years for a possible link to breast cancer in women and allergic reactions in some people.
A 2004 study conducted by scientists in the United Kingdom outlines this possible breast cancer link. For more information on this visit the following websites: http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn4555 and http://www.cosmeticsdesign-europe.com/news/ng.asp?id=49026-cosmetic-chemicals-found.
â€œAlthough there is currently no definitive evidence to the exact dangers of using parabens and other chemically derived additives in personal care products our company has decided to take a pro-active, pre-cautionary position and re-formulate all of our products,â€ says Cindy Summers, President and CEO of Bon SantÃ©.
Parabens have also been known to cause allergic reactions, including dermatitis. For more information visit http://www.truetest.com/templates/8.html.
As a result, Bon SantÃ©â€™s formulas no longer contain parabens, diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, bismuth oxychloride, petrochemicals or any other known chemical sensitizers, says Summers.
â€œBon SantÃ© is committed to offering the businesses we serve as well as their consumers what we believe to be a healthier, more natural choice for their beauty and skin care needs,â€ she adds.
