How are the New Paraben-Free Product Launches Leading the Way?

Parabens have been deemed as a villain in personal care products for a number of years. These typical cosmetic preservatives are considered to be the cause of several critical health issues, breast cancer among them. Though no scientific investigations have till date presented a link between parabens and breast cancer, the stigma has persisted. Parabens being rejected by consumers has acted as a wakeup call for many brands and thus a large number of paraben-free products have been introduced in recent years. This has acted as one of the prime fuelling components for the cosmetic purity and safety in the mass market.

  • Johnson & Johnson’s Transition on Parabens and Phthalate-Free Positioning of Products
Owing to the introduction and success of paraben-free products, top-notch manufacturers such as Affusion Skin Care, Barefoot Botanicals, Crystalux Personal Care Products, Herbalix Restoratives, Colby Organic, among others, have decided to clean up their policies and formulations and have started focusing on solely on products that are natural.

Johnson & Johnson recently decided to move away from parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives. This decision from Johnson & Johnson to carry out a global reformulation of its adult lines and baby products was indeed a game changer in the organic personal care products market. It acted as proof that it is possible even for a large organization having a number of products and various formulations to shift towards safer production.

What is the Major Hitch for the Organic Personal Care Products Market in the Coming Years?

While the aforementioned and various other efforts made by manufacturers to shift to organic products may indicate a positive shift in the industry for personal care products, these products are not a guarantee of genuine purity. Instead, these moves could be utilized to deflect attention away from other worrisome ingredients. A vendor may leverage the label of “free from” in order to appeal to the shoppers who are already impressed by the idea of more natural alternatives, and might not dig deeper to authenticate the claims. Hence, some retailers might offer better alternatives, but the majority could still sell chemical-laden products.
