Parabens? We Don't Need No Stinking Parabens!

Depending on who's doing the talking, parabens are either entirely benign, inexpensive ingredients that preserve the lifespan of your beauty goods, or cancer-causing agents of death and deformation. Hmm. I'm not one for jumping on the fear bandwagon, but while the jury is out, it can't hurt to switch to some of the great products in the paraben-free, “better safe than sorry” camp (especially for products that will be absorbed into your skin).

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel ($134) is packed with herb and plant extracts to hydrate and firm skin. It absorbs quickly, and instantly made my skin feel cooler and smoother.

Ren Seaweed and Sage Body Wash ($22) will leave your skin feeling clean and supple, without stripping away moisture.

Korres Body Butter ($5-$21) is deeply moisturizing and available in four fabulous formulations: Quince, Yoghurt, Fig, and Guava.

Pangea Organics Hand and Body Lotion ($16) is great for those who need extra moisture in the sticky summer months It moisturizes without being heavy or greasy.

All products are also available through Ekoh where, for the month of August, SheFinds readers will receive a 20% discount on everything on the site! Ekho offers prestige organic, natural, and environmentally conscious beauty brands. Use the code 'shefinds' at checkout.
