We have created a new formula for our M-Folia Cream and are happy to announce that now neither our Cream or Ointment contain parabens! This new, gentle, chemical free formula still contains anti-bacterial, anti-oxident and anti-proliferative properties without any of the side effects that are associated with the continual use of parabens. Although we had always used parabens well within the safety level guidelines, our customers informed us that they were concerned about using a natural product like ours that still contained these chemicals.
While several of the commercial products that contain parabens are beauty products that are supposed to enhance the skin, such as lotions and moisturizers, research has found they accelerate the skin aging process. As reported by live-naturally.co.uk, researchers from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine in Japan found that the methyl type of parabens increases sensitivity to and damage from the sun; that is, when exposed to ultraviolet rays, skin cells die at a much faster rate than normal.
Our new formula is gentle, safe and still as effective as ever in combating the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema.
