Are Parabens Really Bad?


Are Parabens Really Bad?are parabens really bad
It seems we learn something new to avoid every day.  So, are parabens really bad?  While searching for credible information to share, I came across the following article written by Paul Pestano, Research Analyst for the EWG.  It references a recent study from researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. There are many articles about the potential dangers of parabens in personal care products.  I found this one well written and informative.

Why Organic?
We get asked if we think a product has to be organic to be good.  When we got into the soap business, we decided as a company to use organic ingredients.  In our opinion, organic ingredients align with our mission of producing high quality products that are good for the environment and good for the consumer.  As we traveled down the entrepreneur path, we realized there is a demand for handmade soap made with organic oils.  We were overwhelmed (and surprised) by the popularity of our handmade organic unscented soaps.  People are looking to make their personal environment as pure, clean and natural as possible. Detergent free soap isn’t enough. Now scent-free non-toxic products are in lavender essential oil

So, as long as you keep wanting them, we will keep making them.  We don’t just make castile soap, we make castile soap better!

  1. Great article, thank you for sharing! I am so glad to find your products do not contain parabens. I’ve made it a habit of not buying things I put on my skin that have ingredients I can’t pronounce.

  2. My daughter stopped using steroid creams. Her skin is now going through withdrawals and is overly inflamed. Which soap or liquid soap would give her relief?

    • Hello Neena,
      This is a great question. We cannot give medical advice, but we can tell you our clients have told us our unscented liquid, bar or oatmeal bar (which is unscented) work where other soaps do not. I would recommend getting one bar or one bottle to test it on your daughter. Let me know if this helps.
