Paraben Free Products ? Understanding the Controversy and Not Taking Chances

Paraben free products are becoming a popular option for those who want natural skin care products.

What is paraben?

Most people do not know what they are. Parabens are preservatives. They have become popular in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. They keep products from growing fungus and bacteria as they start to age. You can find these preservatives in any number of products like toothpaste, shampoos, spray tan products, and shaving gels. They are also common in topical treatments like lotions and cleansers. They are so popular because they are cheap and a long history in these industries.

What is wrong with parabens?

Most people think if they are so popular, they must be safe. Actually, that is up for debate. Testing done on some breast tumors has found the presence of parabens in very low levels. They also have the ability to mimic estrogen at a low level. Estrogen plays an integral part in the development of breast cancer tumors. While no scientific study has directly linked parabens with breast cancer, it is best not to take a chance. Paraben free products give you the same benefits without the risk of breast cancer involved.

Another reason to consider paraben free products is a potential allergic reaction some people have. Some people show an allergic reaction to parabens in the form of skin irritation, dermatitis, and even rosacea. If you have unexplained rashes on your face after using some over the counter products, you should look at the ingredients. It is likely to contain parabens. Trying products without paraben might give you very different results. It is worth a try so you can get the cosmetic and pharmaceutical products you need for healthy skin without risking a facial rash.

Go All Natural When Possible

For those looking for all natural products, you need to ask what is paraben doing in any product. It is not natural. It is a set of chemicals produced in large quantities by the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Look for paraben free products when you are looking for skin care products or any other cosmetic preparation. You do not need to take the risk of breast cancer. You do not need to risk a skin irritation. Using all natural ingredients will give your body what it needs without such risks. You will be amazed at the effective results you get with all natural ingredients. Going all natural is a good thing.

Histamine friendly cleansers and bath products

springer spaniel dog in the bath tub

When people tell me they’re still highly reactive no matter what dietary, stress busting, or lifestyle changes they make, I immediately suggest looking at bath and beauty products. My reactions to these were so very severe that they resulted in near immediate migraine, buzzing in my head, feet and fingers, hives and what looked like acne. Over the years my tolerance has improved greatly, to the point that I can once again use scented products (very natural scents) and use some chemicals. That might not seem like much, but just a few years ago I wasn’t able to use shampoo, body wash or deodorant. Though I can tolerate nasty stuff now, I don’t use it.

Click here to learn how to tailor a histamine balanced diet and healing plan to your lifestyle.

So here’s a list of my favourite histamine-friendly cleansing products.

Because people always ask me where they can buy things I talk about, I added the amazon links here. Please feel free to ignore them and find them on your own somewhere else.

Before we kick things off, may I please ask someone why on earth I’m paying for what’s NOT in my products and food? Yes, yes, quality, blah blah, but really, not everyone who buys organic foods and beauty products are millionaires devoted to a life of hedonism. I’m certainly not. I seem to spend almost every penny I earn on food and keeping myself clean…

If you have products you love and think should be on this list, please share below and I’ll add them here. I’ll then pin this list in the navigation for those who wish to refer to it. Please remember, I can’t predict what will work for you. Just because I’m ok with something there’s no guarantee everyone else will be, but these are products that I’ve trialled and researched and found to be the most likely to work for us.

And finally, a note on higher histamine ingredients than may appear on my list: while tomato extract may be in a 100 percent pure body wash, I’ll take it any day over decyl-sulfer-methu-chemical-name-gmo-bla-bla, any day.

So here’s what’s currently in my bathroom cupboard:

100 Percent Pure Mint Green Tea Cleanser and also the Cucumber cleanser

This brand has the most AMAZING products. I use their mascara, eyeshadows, shampoos, everything! I use the unscented cucumber cleanser daily and the Green Tea one every few days. They’re both really effective and gentle on the skin. I use mine with a face brush for extra exfoliation.

100% Pure Mint White Tea Cleanser, 6.0 Fluid Ounce (Health and Beauty)


List Price: $ 21.00 USD
New From: $ 28.00 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

Andalou Naturals Willow Bark Toner

A recent find at my local health food store. This brand has the most incredible natural ingredients and plant stem cells (I have no clue if this is just sales hype but their products are really special). This toner is an absolute must for my oily skin. I keep a travel size of it in my handbag in case I need to refresh my foundation while away from home. It’s funny, I still vividly remember the days of scrubbing myself raw with a loofah, sea salt and water, and now here I am, using toner!

Willow Bark Pure Pore Toner (Health and Beauty)


List Price: $ 13.99 USD
New From: $ 8.28 USD In Stock

Incognito (unscented) Activated Charcoal Soap

I came across this soap when I ran out of the small suitcase of dead sea bath soap I brought with me from London. It only has a handful of (natural) ingredients and is great for face and body. If this doesn’t take your fancy, check out the Kiss My Face Olive Oil soap. It’s pure olive oil, nothing else. Incognito are perhaps better known as a company for their natural citronella mosquito spray. I pack that with me when traveling anywhere warm.

Incognito Noir – Infused with Dead Sea Salt and fragrance free (Misc.)


List Price: $ 10.49 USD
New From: $ 10.49 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

Green People toothpaste

So my other suitcase from London was half full of this toothpaste. I struggled for years with a severely swollen throat that sent me to the ER a number of times. Turns out that toothpaste was a huge part of the problem. When I finally researched the ingredients online I realised why. My immune system is just more active and ready to fend off perceived invaders than most people’s, so I need to take extra care. While in the past this meant totally avoiding pretty much everything on the planet, now it’s a much more balanced approach consisting mostly of not using processed products and chemicals.

Organic Children Aloe Vera & Spearmint Toothpaste – 50ml (Health and Beauty)


List Price: $ 6.99 USD
New From: $ 6.99 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

Earth Paste

Now this stuff is available in the US. It’s also nearly twice as expensive. Please, please, please share some of your favourites so I don’t have to plan my toothpaste purchases a month in advance from another country.

Redmond Earthpaste – Natural Non-Flouride Toothpaste, Peppermint, 4 Ounce Tube (3 Pack) (Misc.)


List Price: $ 18.12 USD
New From: $ 12.89 USD In Stock

100 Percent Pure Honey & Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner

These are the products I broke my no-poo cherry with. After having tossed out my shampoo for a year (because of horrible itching, dermatitis and hair loss mind you), I gingerly diluted some of this stuff and quickly rinsed my scalp in it. Success! I was fine with it and so began my love affair with this brand. I now use their Yuzu shampoo, but it definitely has more scent. I wasn’t ok with it when I first tried it, but I persevered and now am totally into it.

100% Pure: Honey and Virgin Coconut Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner Set, 8 oz (Misc.)


List Price: $ 72.00
New From: $ 167.00 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

Nourish Organic Unscented Body Wash

I’m totally cool with light, natural scents (rather than natural perfume/parfum which is anything but), but I’ve added this here because it’s a good bridge product. Their other cleaners aren’t bad either if you’re looking for unscented.

Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Body Wash, Pure Unscented, 10 Fluid Ounce (Health and Beauty)


List Price: $ 10.33 USD
New From: $ 6.38 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

Schmidt’s Unscented Deodorant

As my understanding of chemical names evolved over the years I realised the tricks cosmetic companies play in trying to cover up the nasty stuff. Things like aluminium and propylene glycol are just not meant to go under my arms. While this isn’t the strongest stuff on the planet, it sure beats the coconut oil I used to rub under there every 30 minutes.

Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick, Fragrance-Free, 3.25 Ounce (Health and Beauty)


List Price: $ 6.99 USD
New From: $ 6.99 USD In Stock

Release date December 22, 2016.

Cleanwell Thyme Hand Sanitiser

I’m not a big believer in using these products but traveling demands it. I use this stuff on planes, trains and when riding in a car service. It has a couple of ingredients I’m not crazy about so I rinse it off my hands right after spraying. It is the best I’ve found out there, short of carrying a little pot of Manuka honey around (which I’ve done in the past!)

CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Spray – Original – 1 oz (Health and Beauty)
