What's in your Shampoo? Part 2 - Parabens

Dear Readers,

Let's resume our journey through Shampoo making by looking at one ingredient that has lead manufacturers to misery and consumers to awareness: Parabens.

Note that this ingredient is present in most cosmetics, not only shampoos.

Scientific literature is R.I.C.H. with articles about Parabens and throughout my reading, I probably had doubts a few times as to their safe use. In the end, I compiled a lot of information here…

Chemicals in our Make up

So ladies, I've just finished Part3 of which you can read an excerpt here below:
