Importance of Preservative, Fragrance, Irritant, Hormone Disruptors-Free Skincare

For example, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates are known preservative, hormone disruptor (aka endocrine disruptor), irritant respectably. They’re commonly used or contained in the conventional skincare or beauty products.
Skincare brands uses preservatives to prevent the water-borne bacteria from forming in the products. However, when applied on skin, preservatives can disturb skin microbiomes by killing healthy resident microflora from skin. Fragrances, whether it is synthetic, or naturally derived scents, are irritants and sensitizers overtime, it can cause skin sensitivity and develop allergies. Phthalates are one of endocrine disruptors, which affect the hormonal balance. Sulfates can often dry out the skin by excessively removing the skin’s natural oil, harming skin’s protective barrier.
