Methylparaben?

Methylparaben?

ToyBoy ToyBoy
I am really confused right now because I am trying to review a lube that claims to be paraben-free, yet lists methylparaben as an ingredient. Am I missing something here or is methylparaben not a paraben?

That product totally lied to you then because methylparaben is definitely a paraben. I would e-mail customer service about that to let them know.

I really can't figure it out because it specifically says in bold letters on the back of the box that it is paraben-free, but it lists a paraben in the ingredients.

The product definitely lied. You can definitely let customer service know, but also make sure that you note that in your review.

Yeah hunny, here's some links to help you out:

link - Wikipedia

link - Cosmetic Parabens (includes a list, in which you will clearly see methylparaben as a paraben)

I contacted customer service and told them about the issue. You can check out the product page for yourself link. Note the performance category and ingredients.
