How Methylparaben is harmful to our skin or body?

My sister just told me yesterday that the product I have been using for years consists of this harmful ingredient – Methylparaben. I refer to the ingredient list and I realise it did consist of Methylparaben. When reacted with UVB rays, skin will age prematurely. I am shocked because this product is so popular in Japan and in Singapore. I cannot believe I did blindly used this product without checking out the ingredient list. Sighs.

I have read many articles on how parabens are used as a form of preservative in skincare and cosmetics and it is impossible for myself to buy any items without paraben-free. I cannot believe how careless am I. I just read and it might lead to the cause of breast cancer. Although no concrete evidence is stated, I think it is always to be safe than sorry.

Below are some websites I googles and proved what I said.
