The Labor Day sales have us over ...Read more.

Known to disrupt hormone function in our bodies, parabens are synthetic compounds widely used as preservatives in health, beauty and personal care products. While many products only have trace amounts of the compound, using numerous products with small amounts can lead to too much. As reported in Scientific American, researchers have found that even people who make a point to steer clear of potentially harmful beauty products, still have ...Read more.
