Decades of studies have shown serious health issues (including, but not limited to asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise, and in some part due to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
What’s worse is the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful (lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates) in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids every single day, day after day.
We deserve better! It’s time to do something about it!
At Beautycounter, we’ve banned more than 1,500 ingredients setting a new health and safety standard— all while ensuring our products perform, and that they’re as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick or oil in the market. I didn’t only fall in love with Beautycounter because their products are safe and high performing, but I wanted to work with a company that is working towards real change. Beautycounter is dedicated to making changes on the legislative level and creating a safe skin care movement. They are taking action in Washington and working to reform the current laws, in hopes that other skin care companies will follow their strict safety guidelines. They also work very closely to support 3 non-profit organizations that are doing great work to reduce our amount of chemical exposure. Watch this short video to learn why I am so proud to be a part of this company.
Let’s talk about some products!
Beautycounter is dedicated to product performance, as much as product safety. After trying countless non-toxic cosmetic brands (you don’t even want to know how much money I’ve spent on this!), I can tell you that this combination of non-toxic ingredients and products that work is extremely rare.
Some natural cosmetic brands use only 100% organic ingredients. This is as pure as makeup can get, but often, the performance is lacking. While Beautycounter uses both synthetic and organic ingredients, they never compromise on the safety of the ingredients. Beautycounter has developed a groundbreaking and rigorous ingredient screening process, looking for data on skin irritation, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, cumulative exposure (are we exposed to this chemical from other sources) and more.
Every single Beautycounter product is rated between 0-2 on EWG’s Skindeep database, which is my go-to resource for researching product safety!
These products work extremely well and are comparable to the luxurious brands I am used to purchasing at department stores. Except, they are void of all the harsh chemicals. My skin has honestly never looked better!
We use Beautycounter’s children’s and adult shampoos, face wash, moisturizer, face oils and all the make-up. I haven’t tried a Beautycounter product that I didn’t absolutely love!
