paraben vs paraffin?
(0) Hearts

So my stepmom loves Bath and Body works, as do I, so she got me a slew of products from their True Blue Spa collection, such as the "Look Ma, New Hands" lotion. Me being a non-scientist, I was kind of skeptical that it was it has paraffin in it, only because it shares some of the same letters as parabens

I guess what I'm asking is, is paraffin the same as parabens at all?

Not the same. Parabens are chemicals used to preserve cosmetics: kill bacteria and fungus.  Paraffin is a wax, ok it can be used to preserve but it's more known for making things glossy or as lubricants - think candles.  Also paraffin is used in spas to soften skin using heat.
