Parabens and Forever Living

What are Parabens

According to Wikipedia, parabens are a class of preservatives used in cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.  These compounds and their salts are used mainly for their bacteriological and fungicidal properties.  They can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturisers, shaving gels and many other topical products.  They are also used as food additives.

Why do Forever Living use Parabens

As Forever Living is an American company they abide by the rules of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  The F.D.A. has approved parabens for use in everyday products to protect us from harmful bacteria and fungus, and continue to monitor their use together with the Cosmetic Toiletries and Fragrance Association (CTFA).  Both organisations continue to review research on parabens.

For more than 30 years Forever Living Products has been dedicated to helping people, both financially and by providing excellent products, that promote a healthier lifestyle.  Forever Living would never market any product if they thought it would be harmful in any way.

Removing Parabens

While Forever believe their products to be absolutely safe, because of the negative public perception of Parabens Forever Living are working towards removing as many of these ingredients from their products as possible.  There have been no Parabens in any new products since 2008 and other products are being reformulated in order to find alternatives.

Parabens are added in less than 1% quantities in the products which contain them at present.

If you are interested in buying Forever Living products or in becoming a Forever Business owner then get in touch via the  contact me form.  I’m currently building my team in the UK and around the world.

Forever Business Owners can get an up to date list of which of the few remaining products are not paraben free through their local head office.  Formulations can differ in different countries so it’s always best to request the information locally.

    • Hi Victoria. If you are a forever business owner then you need to ask Business Owner Support in Warwick. If not then send me your details via the contact me form at the top of this page.

  1. Why can’t the list just be published for all customers to see. Why not make it freely available? It’s as if you are trying to hide it by not publishing it! That damages your reputation more than just making it available for all to see.
