Long-term Effects Of Methylparaben Use?
Hello, I use skin care, but in ingredients there is a content of menthlyparaben, is it used in the long term ?, but the packaging says Dermatologically tested, is it still used for sensitive skin or should it be avoided? Thank you ..
Hi Vivi, Thank you for the question.
Parabens are substances that are used as preservatives for beauty products such as creams, lotions, soaps, and so on, so they can be used for a long time. Parabens are divided into several types, one of which is methylparaben. The content of parabens in a beauty product is usually still in small doses and is classified as safe if it is registered with the BPOM. Therefore, always make sure you use products that are already registered with BPOM. Although these parabens are in small amounts, they can accumulate in the body and can cause hormonal disturbances, fertility problems, and cancer in several studies, although not all studies can confirm this effect in the long term. However, as much as possible you should avoid products that use parabens. You can consult a dermatologist on the selection of safe skin / beauty care products, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Hope this information helps you.
