No association between skincare and cancer

Skincare and cancer are not linked.

There are some good news coming from Norway, where researchers Charlotta Rylander, Marit B. Veierød, Elisabete Weiderpass, Eiliv Lund and Torkjel M. Sandanger looked at damaging effect of skin care products. The hypothesis was, that extensive use of skincare products which contain endocrine disrupting compounds may have a damaging effect and could increase cancer.

The scientists used data from 106,978 participants in the population-based Norwegian Women and Cancer cohort. Participants were categorized into non-, light, moderate, frequent and heavy users of skincare products based on self-reported use of hand and facial cream and body lotion. The researchers were able link data from the Cancer Registry of Norway to individual data of the participants.
