Why Is It Beneficial To Go Paraben Free?



Paraben has been a topic of discussion in the beauty industry, particularly in recent years. While some assure that parabens are safe, others link them with a variety of health risks. While more research is needed to truly determine whether or not parabens are a threat, there are several benefits to being on the safe side and opting for paraben free products.
Parabens Appear to Mimic Estrogen: 
Parabens seem to mimic the hormone estrogen, which is naturally found in both genders, but exists in greater quantity in women. Estrogen is in charge of female secondary sexual characteristics such as menstruation. As with most hormones, having too much or too little can be problematic.
Avoid a Potential Cancer Risk: 
Numerous studies have linked parabens to cancer. This is due in part to the fact that parabens are not easily broken down in the human body and may continue to accumulate, and to mimic estrogen, leading to increased risks of breast cancer in women and testicular cancer in men.
Help the Environment: 
The parabens found in soaps, cosmetics and shampoos eventually end up in the ocean. While studies are ongoing about the effects of parabens in the water, there have been cases of marine animals, including dolphins, found with high paraben content. 
Paraben Free Alternatives: 
Perhaps the best benefit of going paraben free is the broad variety of alternatives. The potential risks posed by parabens has prompted many in the skin care industry to seek healthier alternatives. Whether you are looking for a paraben free skin care cream, or a paraben free Vitamin C and E serum, you have plenty of options from brand names, as well as instore and online retailers.
With potential risks and plenty of easy to access alternatives, going paraben free is simply the safer choice.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
