Wearing body cream is one of our daily needs, as it not only serves as a shield against hash weather conditions but also helps us maintain a healthy and good looking skin. This need has created a chain of passive income and market for most manufacturers in the health sector. 

However, in a bid to make more profit some of these manufacturers use some harmful materials in their products. Mostly because they tend to reduce the cost of production and maximize their profit. 

The beautiful packaging of a body cream can be pretty enticing, but the the truth is the content is what you are buying. They are tons of ingredients be used to make body lotions that are not just only questionable but potentially harmful to your body.

So watch out for these 6 ingredients in the label of your body lotion before making use of it.

Just watch out for butylparaben, isobutylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, or ethylparaben on the label). They are used to keep bacteria and fungus off your body creams, but can cause hormonal disruption and breast cancer.
