Some of the Dermalogica products have parabens in them. There is a big controversy with parabens POSSIBLY being linked to cancer. Unfortunately, A LOT of products we all use on a daily basis could have parabens in them.
I'm an Arbonne Independent Consultant and our skin care lines do not have parabens in them. Neither does our sunscreen.
Also, some Dermalogica products are NOT pH correct, which is not safe for your skin. Being pH correct is much different than being pH balanced. Our skin has a natural pH of about 5.5, slightly acidic. We have an acid mantle layer on your skin to help protect against bacteria and infection. Products that are "pH balanced" have a pH of about 7.5, more alkaline. The only thing pH balanced products do is strip the acid mantle layer, now making you susceptible to bacteria and infection.
ALL of Arbonne's products are pH correct, not disrupting that acid mantle layer.
Anyway, check the ingredients on your container and see if it contains methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben or butylparaben. Hopefully not. Less common parabens include isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben and benzylparaben.
Hope this helps.
