It seems like everyone is talking about parabens. And how they might affect our skin. But what are they? What do they do? Are they a bad thing? Do we need to be worried? We asked scientist Chris, technical editor of Personal Care Magazine to give us the lowdown on parabens. We love how Chris breaks things down for us, and gives us accurate and relevant information about the science behind skin care. We have heard a lot said about parabens but we want to get to the truth, and what we need to know to keep our skin healthy.
