New line of paraben-free body products

Massage Warehouse, providers of high quality, cost-effective massage products, announces the release of its paraben-free line of Massage FX lotions and creams. Parabens, preservatives that are quickly absorbed through the skin, have been shown to mimic the activity of estrogen in the body’s cells. Some researchers suggest that methylparaben, which is widely used in cosmetics and skin creams, may increase risk of breast cancer, or accelerate the growth of these tumors.

“Paraben is a concern for both the individual getting a massage and the massage therapist who uses these products every day,” says Kray Kibler, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, Massage Warehouse. “Our new Massage FX formula eliminates paraben while maintaining the same exceptional performance characteristics of the old formula. This odorless proprietary blend is rich in vitamins and natural botanicals, glides on easily and is highly workable. Massage FX products enable massage therapists to cut costs without sacrificing quality.”

Massage FX products reflect a high standard of quality and commitment to overall wellness, featuring a proprietary blend that is rich in vitamins and natural botanicals that provide essential moisture to the skin while stimulating circulation, the company says. The new paraben-free formula does not include Massage FX oil, which never contained parabens, it added. Paraben-free Massage FX gel is also now available and rounds out the line, which previously included just oil, lotion and crème.

Massage Warehouse serves the massage therapy industry, delivering quality massage products at fair prices, including linens, oils and creams, massage tables, aromatherapy products, rehab and exercise equipment, collagens, herb wraps and salon supplies. In addition, Massage Warehouse supports the industry through advocacy and education, enabling massage therapists to optimize their practices and deliver better health and wellness to a growing number of people.

“Massage Warehouse is committed to providing product options that offer simple, all-natural ingredients to meet the dramatically increased demand among massage therapists and consumers for toxin- and paraben-free massage and personal care products,” Kibler adds.
