    Yes. Unfortunately there are harmful chemicals in most personal care products like deodorant, shampoo, and cosmetics. Most lotions sold contain harmful chemicals like phthalates and petrochemicals. These chemicals can cause cancer and other diseases.

    Sadly, yes. Many lotions and skincare products (yes cosmetics too) contain parabens. Parabens include the following: Methylparaben, Propylparaben, IIsoparaben, Butylparaben. They are widely used as preservatives and are possibly linked to cancer due to its estrogenic effects. Another one is petrochemicals. There have been studies that have shown oral and topical applications of petrochemcials can cause anemia, kideny degeneration, and nerve damage to the brain.
