Happy Birthday Beautycounter
March 4, 2015 Beautycounter turned two!
When I read the numbers above, I was in awe. Why is the United States so far behind the European Union in ensuring the products we put on our bodies are 100% safe?
Research has revealed that toxic chemicals in our daily lives may play a role in the increase of many serious health issues. The good news: The more you know about these harmful chemicals, the more you can safeguard yourself and those you love most.
Knowledge is power. Cross reference Beautycounter's Never List with cosmetic ingredient labels or use the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Skin Deep app on your smart phone. Scan your current products to get a toxicity rating. Skip those products that contain chemicals known to be harmful. Avoid undisclosed "fragrance" ingredients. Reducing toxic chemicals, whether it's in skin care, household cleaners or food, matters. Making a few simple changes, you can lead your family down a safer path and move the consumer market in the right direction.
Below are several recent articles I personally found both interesting and compelling.
