"Check the Ingredients"

In the October 20, 2009 article, "10 ways to detoxify your life," posted on, number 7 urges readers to "Check the ingredients" in efforts to "avoid parabens."

Parabens are chemicals found in many products, especially cosmetic care products, that are used as preservatives to stop nasty bacterial growth. They come in many forms, including butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben. Companies choose to use these chemicals because they are very cheap.

These cheap preservatives that stop microscopic growth, however, are thought to contribute to another horrific process- cancer. Studies have shown that parabens have the ability to mimic estrogen in the body, primarily impacting the endocrine system and potentially creating an increased risk of cancer. Studies have also found parabens present in breast cancer tissue samples.

Natural alternatives to the use parabens include grapeseed oil and Vitamin E, which are more costly, but definitely more healthy.

It is amazing that something so commonly used can have such negative effects. The few seconds that you take to "Check the ingredients" could have life-long benefits!

South of France products will NEVER include parabens.

CNN Health Names "5 toxics that are everywhere"

In the May 31, 2010 CNN Health article written by David S. Martin, "5 toxics that are everywhere: Protect yourself," some of the most commonly found toxins were outlined, along with their effects on the human body. The toxins addressed are:

BPA - Bisphenol A
PBDEs - Polybrominatedd diphenyl ethers

The first two toxins, BPA & phthalates, are commonly found in skincare products on store shelves and in your homes. In January, 2010, the FDA declared “some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.”

According to the CNN article, "Phthalates are considered endocrine disrupters," and may lead to a number of developmental issues.

It is important for you to know about these toxic agents and the effects that they may have on your body. At South of France, our Spa Naturals line is already free of toxins such as BPA and phthalates and we are currently redesigning our body care line so that it will be 100% BPA- and phthalate- free as well. This new line of product should be availabe August 2010. The worry of whether or not you are contaminating your body should not be an issue when you are simply trying to take care of your skin.
