What Causes Aging?
As we age our bodies become more unstable in different ways the two most common are Oxidative Stress and Free Radicals.
Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.
What is a free radical?
All cells produce free radicals. A free radical is any atom or molecule, missing an electron in its outer shell. This free radical will attack and destroy other necessarily healthy atoms to get the electron it's missing. Free radicals can accumulate and cause oxidative damage. Oxidative damage causes biological organisms to age. In other words, free radicals turn the oils of our skin rancid which in turn damages the collagen in our skin. Collagen is the protein that serve as the building blocks of our skin. Free radicals have even been associated with skin cancer and premature skin-aging due to sun exposure (which speeds up free radical damage).
The Solution - Antioxidants
Antioxidants are a group of beneficial nutrients. An antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. They help to remove the free radicals and their damage from these cells. They slow down and can even stop this oxidative damage that causes the skin to age. Antioxidants reduce the damaging oxidative process in cells, including skin cells. Antioxidants block the process of oxidation by neutralizing free radicals, which means, the antioxidants themselves become oxidized. This is why there is a constant need to replenish our antioxidant supply.

Parabens preserve by stopping the natural life cycle. It does this by halting the nutrients from their complete life cycle. What does this mean? It means the skin food product in all the skincare products out there is "dead" product. Dead Product that is "preserved" with parabens mean, that your product will not rot, because it is no longer a viable source of life nourishing, nutrition. It has now been "frozen" in time, so that it does not go bad. Part of the life cycle of anything that nourishes the body, is, it will go bad. Parabens "pickle" the product with toxic chemicals so that your product will have a shelf life of forever, which means it is only delivering "dead" product filled with parabens and other toxic chemicals. Since the job of parabens is to preserve by ending the lifecycle of your skincare, what do you think these parabens are doing to your body once you apply it to your vibrant body's skin? This is a the beginning of health problems beneath the skin and of the skin... This story has no happy ending.
