  • Screen-Shot-2014-08-25-at-2.36.47-PM Parabens 4/17/2017Immediacy of information seems like a good thing a lot of the time but so much of it can get twisted, misconstrued or enveloped in blanket statements during delivery that it makes finding the truth so much harder. Lately, the topic of parabens has been coming up a lot since we’ve brought on some new products at the office. Parabens,…
