What is Triclosan and why is it important to use only triclosan-free products
You read earlier that this product is Triclosan-free, however, many people are not familiar with the ingredient triclosan and because of this people are unaware of the dangers that this ingredient can cause to the body. So, here is a brief summarization of the ingredients and the reason you should stay away from products that contain triclosan.
Triclosan is a high production volume ingredient used as a bactericide in personal care products such as soaps, sanitizers, toothpaste and deodorants to name a few. It has been linked to heart disease and heart failure.
Recently in a new study…
- After mice were exposed to one dose of triclosan, heart muscle function was reduced by 25 percent, and grip strength was reduced by 18 percent
- Researchers also exposed individual human muscle cells (from heart and skeletal muscles) to a triclosan does similar to everyday life exposure, and this, too, disrupted muscle function and caused both heart and skeletal muscles to fail
- Triclosan has also been linked to disruption of hormone function
What is Parabens and why is it important to use paraben free products
Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products such as deodorants, soaps, moisturizers, cosmetics, and shampoos. Common parabens include methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben. Parabens allow skin care products to survive for months or even years in your medicine cabinet, however, they also enter your body through your skin when you use these products. According to Mercola.com, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals, parabens included every year. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body and disrupt functions of the endocrine system.
In recent studies, researchers found that parabens can…
Increase the Risk of Breast Cancer
Colby College’s Clean Makeup website reports that parabens can mimic estrogen and disrupt the body’s hormone system. Cornell University reports that a high lifelong exposure to estrogen can increase breast cancer risk.
The ability of parabens to mimic other hormones makes them endocrine disruptors, substances that adversely affect the endocrine system. The endocrine system releases hormones into the bloodstream and is involved in a number of functions related to reproduction, waste elimination, digestion, and metabolism. Endocrine disruptors such as parabens can lead to early puberty in adolescent girls and boys, as reported by the New York Times. Endocrinologists have observed the average age of puberty decreasing in the past several decades and have seen girls as young as eight exhibit breast development and pubic hair growth. Endocrine disruptors can also lead to testicular enlargement and breast development in young boys.
Lower Sperm Counts
Parabens can also adversely affect the male reproductive system. In a study by the Tokyo Metropolitan Research Laboratory of Public Health, researchers administered parabens to three-week-old rats. After four weeks, researchers examined the rats and found their sperm production significantly decreased in relation to the number of parabens they had received. The rats who received the highest dose of parabens, which was consistent with the daily acceptable intake of parabens in Europe and Japan, showed a significant decrease in sperm concentration.
People should always choose soaps, hand sanitizers, and other personal care products that do not contain Triclosan or parabens. This is why I love HerbaSafe Antiseptic Hand Sanitizers, it contains only natural ingredients that are not dangerous or can harm the body.
It contains all natural oils such as citrus Citrus paradisi peel oil, cocas oil and aloe leaf.
