Choosing Safer Beauty

How I changed out my beauty products and how you can too!

Swapping for Safer Beauty & Why

Greetings!


I'm so excited to see you here today. If you've gotten this far, I encourage you to stay to the end, hint : There's an incentive :)


Why did I start working for Beautycounter? A little background to get us started, earlier this year, I was shocked to find out my hormones were playing a little game on me called "Estrogen Dominance". It's a game I hope you never have to go through, but for those that have or have not heard of this annoyance and debilitating diagnosis, it wreaks havoc on your entire body causing a myriad of issues and problems, not to mention, it can lead to a form of aggressive breast cancer, not detectible in tests prior to diagnosis. I was devastated. I was upset. I needed to know more.


My journey of wanting to learn more has brought me to this moment, working for a trailblazing company called Beautycounter. Beautycounter was presented to myself by a friend who thought I'd like to hear about their mission and consider switching my beauty product routine over to a toxic/chemical-free product line instead. Boy, was that introduction made at a poignant time in my life. I was searching for answers and there it was, sitting in my hands as samples.


So let's rewind a minute, how did I get here? Well, as many of you, I think over the years of learning how to take care of my body best (Think eating and working out and choosing BPA Free containers) I thought I was doing a pretty good job. I mean, I don't eat kale salads because I love them, I do it for the mineral and vitamin benefits. The sad part is, I can count on two hands the number of women in my life that have been touched by the evil beast that is breast cancer. Of those amazing women, some have went on to become angels, including my Grandmother, Delight Fern Loeks. It was her life that made me consider, at all costs, how NOT to let that evil disease into my life.


Back to realty: This year, after fighting for baby #1 and coming to the realization that multiple components weren't aligning correctly within not only my body, but my husband's body, blood draw after blood draw and test after test, the conclusion has come on both sides, but mine was the most concerning, "Estrogen Dominance" which scared myself to the point of wanting to know why. Why this happens to so many women. Why so many women have PCOS, Endrmetriosis, Fibroids, infertility. And then the reasons started compiling....


Did you know, there is no governing law in the US stating what can and cannot be used in our everyday beauty products? Europe bans over 1400 toxic chemicals from their products, whereas the US only bans 11 and those 11 chemicals were banned in 1938! I mean, think about the technological advances we've made since 1938 and yet, that was the last time we looked at the chemicals being used in our products. Chemicals that cause Hormone disruption, contain carcinogens! I needed to take action, for myself and for the betterment of my family and friends.


Beautycounter is unique, one-of-a-kind. In a 62 billion dollar industry, Beautycounter has taken a stand and banned almost 1500 toxic chemicals that are harmful to the human body. See you later hormone disruptors! Adios cancer-causing ingredients. HELLO action packed ingredients that are free of toxins. That's pretty amazing don't you think? That's what I thought too...and that's why I'm beyond proud to say I work for Beautycounter!


Beautycounter is pushing for better legislation from Washington. Going to Congress and asking for change, showing how change can happen and providing better options for safer beauty, it's an amazing movement to watch and luckily, be a part of.


I can't wait to share more information with you and band together to push for change. Get ready to be a part of something safer, something better and something that gives back to the idea that we can be a part of change!
