There are many problems with this article which is actually an advertisement. I will just cite two.

Lyposomes have problems since they often introduce material directly into the cells rather than around the cells. This can alter cellular metabolism and cause various types of dysfunction.

As for parabens, they are very high in healthy foods. Blueberries are very high in parabens, including methyl paraben, and considered one of the healthiest of foods.

No causal link with cancer has ever been proven and so far there is no scientific evidence to support any link with any form of cancer. A recent review of the available data has concluded "it is biologically
implausible that parabens could increase the risk of any estrogen-mediated endpoint, including effects on the male reproductive tract or breast cancer" and that "worst-case daily exposure to parabens would present substantially less risk relative to exposure to naturally occurring endocrine active chemicals (EACs) in the diet such as the phytoestrogen daidzein." In addition, the American Cancer Society has concluded that there is no good scientific evidence to support a claim that use of cosmetics such as antiperspirants increase an individual's risk of developing breast cancer. Search "methyl paraben wikipedia" on Google for references.

Thank you very much. I knew it was all about commercial hype.
