What are parabens and why are they bad for us?
In simple terms, parabens are a class of chemicals widely used to preserve many types of formulas, including toiletries, fragrances, and the like. Parabens are often used to prevent the growth of microbes in cosmetics products and can be absorbed through skin, blood and the digestive system. Did you ever think of that? Things that you put on your skin can actually get absorbed into your body. Your skin is your largest organ (American Academy of Dermatology - http://www.aad.org/dermatology-a-to-z/for-kids/about-skin).Natural bug repellents are best!
At Mikey & Momo, we do not use parabens, deet, or other chemicals that could harm your skin. Your health is the most important thing that you have. Maintaining it with healthy and natural ingredients should be your priority. We make it ours.
To health, long life, and living naturally,
Mikey & Momo
