To search by structure, left click in the box below to display the chemdraw toolbar. Then, draw the chemical structure of interest in the box using the toolbar. When your structure is complete, click “Search by Name” or “Search by SMILES” to generate the product name or SMILES respectively. This feature will search within the Gelest product database for matching chemical names or SMILES. Note: In cases where Gelest uses alternate chemical names, it may be necessary to search for the product of interest by its CAS#.
Hi Thanks so much for all the useful posts on preservatives and I’m looking forward to your naturals class. This morning I overheard a conversation on the “dangers” of parabens. While I get the fear mongering and pseudo science that has surrounded this issue, there was one thing she said that made me wonder….Is there a potential danger from using too many products containing them? By my last count (and I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit this but apparently marketing works…) I use 45-48 products every morning….body wash, perfume, shampoo, conditioner, hair gels and thermal protecting hair sprays, lots of different makeup products, eye cream…deodorant.. serums….you name it. If every product contains parabens, could there be a health effect in that the amount on my body is no longer insignificant? Hope that makes sense. Thanks!
