- Parabens are a group of chemicals widely used as artificial preservatives in cosmetic and body care products since the 1920s.

They are also used in synthetic fragrances to make their scent last longer. Health concerns from phthalates include endocrine disruption, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and cancer.
