We all know (I hope) that parabens are bad and that we should avoid them but do you know why? Parabens are a group of compounds that are used as preservatives in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Parabens are the most widely used preservative in the cosmetic industry. You may see them listed as methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben and isobutylparaben.

Paraben Free Foundation
So why do I care and why do I want a paraben free foundation? Parabens have been linked in studies to a variety of health issues including breast cancer, declining sperm counts and disruption of our endocrine system. Everything that we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies including what’s in our makeup. I have been trying to find alternatives for makeup that contains paraben. When I was offered Ageless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation for review, I was quite happy to see that it was a paraben free foundation.
Ageless Derma Anti aging Pressed Mineral Foundations are 100% pure mineral makeup. They feel very light on your skin and give you a natural look rather than a heavily made up look. It helps to replenish the skin while it protects it and keeps it neutralized from free radicals that are damaging. The lighter texture of Ageless Derma Foundation lets your skin breathe while it repels the humidity in the air.
The key ingredients are Boron Nitride, Calming Lavender Aromatherapy, Freeze Dried Vitamins A and E, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Vitamin A, E and Green Tea Extracts. Ageless Derma is not tested on animals and is made in the USA. Ageless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation is available in ten different shades so it’s very easy to find one that matches your complexion. I received Canvas which is one of their lighter shades.
I love the coverage I got from the Ageless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation and the fact that it came with its own sponge for application. I found it very easy to apply with the sponge although the directions say that it can also be used with a brush or airbrush. If you’re trying to eliminate parabens in your makeup, I recommend you try this paraben free foundation.
I received this product through Tomoson.com. I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
