Q Are parabens re­ally bad for my skin? – Li Hui Shan, 31, civil ser­vant A: Parabens are chem­i­cals used in cos­metic prod­ucts as a preser­va­tive, and have been linked to breast can­cer. But Mah Mei Hui, phar­ma­cist and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of The Skin Phar­macy, says: “There is no con­clu­sive study that links parabens to breast can­cer – it doesn’t mean that us­ing a prod­uct with parabens will lead to breast can­cer.” Those with sen­si­tive skin, how­ever, should be care­ful when us­ing prod­ucts with preser­va­tives, in­clud­ing parabens. Mei Hui adds: “To avoid parabens, you can check out plant-based al­ter­na­tives such as grape­fruit seed ex­tract or plant-based ben­zoic acid.”
