Are Breast Creams Safe? – How to Choose the Right One
If you have been looking for something to give your bust a boost you are not alone. Every year thousands of women will buy a breast enlargement cream to make their breasts bigger. There are so many brands sold but not all of them are safe.
In this article, I will offer some suggestions on what to look for when searching for a safe breast cream.
You may be thinking to yourself that all breast enlargement creams are the same. Unfortunately, they are not. While it is true that many breast creams share common ingredients, this does not mean they are exactly the same.
While I don’t claim to be a know it all about breast creams, I have used dozens of creams myself and have learned what to look for when choosing one.
I have also done my fair share of research on the ingredients to look for when searching for a cream.
How to know if a breast cream is safe or not
All natural breast creams are considered safe by the companies that make them, that’s is because there are limits on how much of certain ingredient a product can have before its considered unsafe.
Parabens should be avoided if at all possible. However, many breast creams do have them.
We have all heard that parabens can cause potential health risks, the cosmetic industry claims parabens are safe, yet they have been found in the tissue of breast cancer tumors.
Parabens are used as an antimicrobial to help preserve all kinds of cosmetic products, including makeup, hand soap, lotions and of course breast creams.
There are six types of parabens which include:
Parabens are found in some breast creams to prevent bacteria, mold, and yeast. Since many cosmetics can sit on a shelf for a long time parabens are used to conserve the product.
Some of the popular breast creams even though considered safe contain traces of parabens, For example, Natureday breast cream contains Methyl Paraben while Breast Actives contains both Methyl and Propyl Paraben.
Are Parabens dangerous?
There has not been enough conclusive to say that products containing Parabens are dangerous. In fact, if you read the labels on many of the beauty products you are currently you might be shocked to find out that they do contain parabens.
So, the quick answer is yes some studies say that parabens may be hazardous to your health, but if you are concerned you probably should stop using beauty products altogether.
Propylene glycol is found in some breast creams, it is also found in many foods and drinks that we consume every day.
There are breast creams that do contain propylene glycol in amounts that are not considered harmful, however, women with sensitive skin may experience skin irritation.
Not only do breast creams contain propylene glycol so do many cosmetics. If you are currently using a lotion, shampoo or makeup containing this substance it is highly unlikely you would have any sort of skin irritation from a breast cream.
Polyethylene glycol is another ingredient I have seen in some breast creams.
Polyethylene glycol is a petroleum-based byproduct in some skin creams, it is also found in many personal care products such as sunscreen, moisturizing lotions, and cosmetics.
Are Polyethylene Glycols harmful? Some studies say yes, especially if used in large quantities.
Ingredients in breast creams are regulated by the FDA
Yes, it is true that breast creams are regulated and do have to pass FDA inspection, but that does not mean that they are safe.
There are thousands of foods, drinks, and cosmetics that contain chemicals that most of us are not aware of, even worse, we do not know the possible long-term side effects they can have.
How to Choose a safe breast cream
Unfortunately, it is most likely you will find one or more of the chemicals listed above in most popular breast creams. Most cosmetic products use them to preserve the shelf life of their products so they are hard to avoid.
If you are extremely concerned about potential side effects from using a breast cream I would suggest not using them at all.
However, most of the ingredients in breast enlargement creams are also found in everyday products you are already using.
My personal conclusion
I personally believe that we are exposed every day to far more hazardous pollutants in our environment such as radiation from cell phone towers, carbon monoxide in the air, and fluoride in our drinking water. All of these things may have an effect on our health.
I believe that there is nothing wrong with using a breast cream, I have been using them for over two years and as of yet have not had any negative reactions. However, if you are concerned about the possible side effects of the ingredients mentioned above, you should probably avoid them if you are concerned about the possible health risks you should probably avoid them.
