What Are the Best Moisturizers to Combat Desert Dryness?Give Us Your Thoughts
- I purchased Breath-ease Nasal Moisturizer Gel seravel years ago, sight unseen. I tried it and liked it. But after reading an article about toxic ingredients in personal care products, I read the label and found it contained Methylparaben and Propylparaben, preservatives that have been linked to cancer. Because parabens generally make up less than 1 percent of total product formulations, they are considered safe by many manufacturers and ingredient-specialists. However, a study conducted at England's University of Reading found that parabens can enter the body through the skin. The study, published in the January 2004 Journal of Applied Toxicology found that 18 of 20 breast tumors contained significant concentrations of parabens! Being a cancer survivor, I no longer buy products containing Parabens. Fortunately, an increasing number of natural personal care companies are using alternative preservatives such as potassium sorbate, grapefruit seed extract, etc. As I said, I bought this product some years back. Hopefully Grossan will reformulate the product to eliminate Parabens. For nasal dryness, I recommend Ponaris Nasal Emollient. It is a clear, light liquid, which contains oils of pine, eucalyptus, peppermint, cajeput, cottonseed oil and iodine. I know it sounds pungent but it is really quite mild and soothing. I apply it with a Q-Tip for instant nasal comfort. Ponaris contains no parabens. Nor mineral oil or petroleum either. The oils in Ponaris are assimilable (petroleum products are not and in rare cases have caused respiratory (lung) disease due to inhaling traces of Vaseline put in the nose).
