Hi Madi, thanks for your question!
Many studies have established that parabens are safe for use in cosmetics. However, we know that some of our customers are concerned about their inclusion in our products. Parabens are being phased out in a steady process of redevelopment and it is our ambition to become a paraben-free organization. While not all our Body Butters are currently paraben-free, all new Body Butters are paraben-free and have been for at least 4 years. All new formulas are developed without parabens.
Hope this helps.
