I’m not a chemist but i learnt so much going on Stephanie Greenwood’s site: Chemical of the day.
You have to be so careful with the products that you are buying and applying on your skin.

I would like to announce today that I now have irrefutable evidence that Japanese Honeysuckle Extract does indeed contain parahydroxy benzoic acid, a “natural paraben” which has been shown- in lab tests- to act estrogenically like synthetic parabens do. No ifs, ands or buts about it!

In other words,if you are trying to avoid parabens, and find organic products with written Japanese Honeysuckle, it means that this products has parabens, natural ones but with the same effect on your body.
I have found a few organic brands using Honeysuckle: 100%Pure , i need to look for the other one, it was actually an organic shop in London….
I suggest that you could read these articles that i’m going to link.
I’m telling you, it’s so hard to shop.

So we can say that companies labeling their products “paraben free” are misinforming their customers.
