Spry Candles use only the best ingredients for our Candles, Reed Diffusers and Soap, more importantly our products are natural and paraben free.
For those of you who do not know much about Parabens let us explain more.
If the ingredient list on your skin care product includes the words methylparaben, propylparaben, or butylparaben, it’s time for you to switch to a safer, less toxic product. There have been studies made on parabens and it is understood that parabens mimic the hormone oestrogen which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers, can bring on early puberty, and can lower sperm counts, affecting the male reproductive system.
Parabens can be found in a lot of skin care products from shampoos, moisturisers to topical pharmaceuticals and toothpaste and has also been found being used as a food additive.
When shopping for safer, less toxic skincare products to replace the paraben-filled ones you have, keep in mind that natural and organic does not necessarily mean paraben-free or non-toxic, therefore you have to read the ingredients every time.
There is an app called ‘Think Dirty’ that makes your choices slightly easier, so make sure you download on your phone before you hit the shops.
