There has been a lot of talk in the news lately about parabens.

What are parabens?Parabens are chemicals used to preserve longevity and prevent the growth of bacteria in cosmetics and foods.  They’re there to protect us from contamination.  More often than not, a mixture of parabens is used in beauty products because the combination of preservatives provides a greater range of protection against bacteria.

In terms of skin care and beauty products, parabens are used in very low doses and most are considered safe; however, the safety of others has posed questions.  Due to the much recent discussions about the possible harmful (yet-to-be-scientifically-proven) effects of parabens, Institut’ DERMed has excluded parabens from all its skin care products!  Instead, we are using natural, plant-derived preservatives to help keep our products micro-organism-free.
