The Spotlight:

Cancer-causing Chemicals Have No Place in Skin Care

By:  Folake  Dosu  Abe's Marketing Coordinator  October 10th, 2014

Your shampoo. Your nail polish and nail polish remover. Your moisturizer and sunscreen. Your lipstick, eyeliner and hair spray. Your antibacterial soap ... and your bar soap. Ointments, toners and underarm deodorant. All of the products you love and use every single day? Yeah, they might be causing you harm. Why? Many commercial beauty, bath and body products contain cancer-causing chemicals like lead, aluminum, parabens, phthalates, triclosan and octyl-methoxycinnamate. Yeah, we can't pronounce that last one either.

Why expose yourself to possible dangers when you don't have to? During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Abe's wants to help raise awareness about breast cancer prevention by exposing you to toxic-free skincare products. All month, any customers who sign our pledge will unlock a code good for discounts on a selection of natural and organic beauty, bath and body products. Why? Each day, 1 in 13 women are exposed to known or probable human carcinogens through personal care products. That's scary. We want to help change that. So between now and the end of October, we will make a donation to a breast cancer charity for each person who signs the pledge. It's this easy: You sign and get a discount and help someone else. Talk about shopping therapy!
