Did you know the FDA has no regulations on skincare in the US? Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not needFDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives…guys that is SCARY!
What does this mean? Well on a basic level anything can be added to our products without being regulated.
Parabens, for instance, are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Chemically, they are a series of para hydroxybenzoate’s or esters of para hydroxy benzoic acid. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas and they cause cancer so why they heck would we want to be putting them in or on or even near our bodies?
Arbonne has chosen to follow the guidelines of the Eurpenan Union and the Eropean Cosmetic Directive because their standards are SO high. This makes me feel GREAT about what I am using on my skin!
Do your research! Thoug stors like Target and Macy’s offer an affordable and convient options they are not always the best for your skin.
