Cheers to a Healthy 2016!
Happy New Year!
As we head into the New Year, many of us will be making New Year's Resolutions. If you are like me that list can be pretty long as there are many things I need to work on and change! Health goals tend to be at the top of that list for most people. If you are aiming for a healthy 2016, consider what you are putting on your body not only what goes in it. Only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data. Companies are allowed to use known toxins in the products we use every single day on ourselves and our children. It is quite alarming.
The more you know...
Below are some stats about the United States and how this industry is poorly regulated. At Beautycounter, we are committed to truth, transparency, and safety. Don't you think we deserve better?
Curious about what is in the products you are currently using?
If you want to know what is inside your products at home you can download the Skin Deep App (it's free) or you can go directly to the website posted below. You can search your products and and learn more about their ingredients. The Environmental Working Group also has a great app for food and cleaning products as well.
The Never List
Below is a starting point of ingredients to avoid, we call it our Never List. We have banned over 1,500 ingredients in our products setting a new standard of safety with our strict ingredient selection process. This is about progress, not perfection. It can be overwhelming to think about all of this, it is important to remember that small changes over time add up.
