Parabens are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives in the skin care, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food industries due to their bacterial and fungicidal properties. They can be found in moisturizers, cleansing creams, shampoos, toothpaste and as well as frozen, canned and processed foods, however, they are becoming increasingly controversial because they have been found in high concentrations in breast cancer tumors.
For a long time, Revivo has been aware that women are getting small amounts of parabens from a large number of sources on a daily basis. It is accumulation of parabens from so many sources day after day that can build to dangerous levels in the body.
“Research has shown that we have to be careful of parabens, but it’s hard for anyone to stay away from them when they are in so many products and foods we use or consume every day. For this reason I have undertaken the extensive program to remove parabens from all of the Spa De Soleil skin care products,” says Revivo, a leader in the organic and natural skin care products industry.
The Spa De Soleil program is no small feat. Revivo spends her days researching the best ingredients to use in her skin care products and then formulating these ingredients into her skin care lines. Many of the ingredients she researches have been used down through the ages for their youthful, skin nourishing and anti-aging properties. She also researches the source of the ingredients to ensure pure ingredients are secured for use. Each product then takes several months of formulation and testing to replace the parabens with these natural ingredients.
Once the formulation process is completed, each Spa De Soleil product, individually, goes through a lengthy series of testing. Care is given to ensure the product is stable, the ph is correct, the viscosity is right and that it meets third party microbiological testing. Multiply this by hundreds of products and one can see the enormous amount of work behind the project.
“And the final test is client satisfaction,”
