After reading the recent update article on environmental estrogens, I decided to check the moisturizer I use for parabens. As luck would have it, every bottle of body or face lotion I owned had some form of paraben (methyl, propyl and one other I can’t remember).
So I went out to buy a new bottle from the drugstore since I’m heading out for a beach vacation next week and will surely be needing moisturizer. The only thing I found was that looked decent was Eucerin Original Lotion. I have no idea what half the ingredients are, but I didn’t see any paraben varients. Here’s the list:
Water, Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, PEG-40, Sorbitan Peroleate, Glycerol Lanolate, Sorbitol, Proplyene Glycol, Cetyl Palmitate, Magnesium Sulfate, Aluminum Stearate, Lanolin Alcohol, BHT, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.
Anything of concern in there? In addition, what other brands are out there that are good options for body lotion and options for face lotion?
