I've fallen in love
with another company and can't wait to tell you about it!
It's time for me to join a mission driven, business venture with Beautycounter.
I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to let you know that I have decided to make a change. Not only a change in my career, but a change in the choices I am making for myself and my family. Change can be daunting, but when passion and excitement are at the forefront of change, it makes it easier to know that the my decision to join Beautycounter is the right one. Why leave Stella & Dot after a successful 6 years? The answer is simple: because I wholeheartedly believe in Beautycounter's mission and I want to be part of the movement to educate consumers and change the regulations in the cosmetic industry. I have learned so much over the past 3 month after my sister, Ann, joined Beautycounter as a consultant and I hosted her first social. I fell in love with the products, have seen a noticeable difference in how my skin feels and looks and even had Lucia try the charcoal soap on her eczema which is now almost gone!
I never questioned what I was slathering on my body, washing my face with or using for lipstick or sunscreen on a DAILY BASIS. I've used everything from Neutragena to Mac to CVS brands to Burts Bees. I thought that "Dermatologist Recommended" meant that it was safe! Little did I know what harsh and toxic chemicals were in the products I was using on myself and my children. I was horrified, ticked off AND felt completely duped by the cosmetic industry after learning the underbelly of the word "fragrance"!
Now I want to educate people I care about to make smarter and safer choices when it comes to their personal care products. Beautycounter is a transformational organization focusing on high quality skin care and cosmetics whose foundation is truth, transparency and better beauty - a safe and effective beauty brand that puts your health first.
It would mean so much to me if you could take a moment to watch this 3 minute video and read about my exciting new venture.
WHY I DECIDED TO JOIN BEAUTYCOUNTER
Beautycounter is a personal care brand built on the belief that products can be beautiful, effective, high-performing AND safe. It's like a marriage of Whole Foods and Chanel. The products are simply amazing and as luxurious as anything on the market. We offer Skin and Body Care, Sunscreen, a fabulous Kids Collection, baby line and an equally fabulous line of Cosmetics that are all truly safe and toxin free.
Most of us try to lead a healthy lifestyle. I've long been one who has thought about feeding healthy foods to my kids, buying organic (where I can) and attempting to exercise (not always as much as I'd like to!) But, like 80% of Americans, I was not aware of the toxic chemicals that are in everyday personal care products. Our skin, our largest organ, absorbs what we put on it, and it takes around 26 seconds to enter the bloodstream.What goes on us is just as important as what goes in us.
The most shocking thing? The last time a federal law was passed to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products was in 1938 (Roosevelt was President!) The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting the use of over 1,300 ingredients. The United States has banned only 11 to-date, yes 11!! That is unacceptable. At Beautycounter, we have banned over 1,500 harmful ingredients from our products setting a new health and safety standard.
My sister and I at her first social - how lucky am I that we will have the chance to work together!
SHARE THE MESSAGE....LOVE THE PRODUCTS!
On www.beautycounter.com/kristenweiss you will find a wealth of empowering information about ways we can all make the world healthier, along with products you can trust are safe and effective. Because we all deserve better. Beautycounter is doing something about it. That is why I joined. To be part of a movement that has significant social impact and a company that wants to affect change all the way to Washington.
Start by scanning the bar codes of the products you are using via the Skin Deep Phone App (supported by the EWG - Environmental Working Group). This app assigns risk ratings based on chemicals each product contains. e.g., (0-2) Low Hazard, (3-6) Moderate Hazard, (7-10) High Hazard. You can also visit: www.ewg.org/consumer-guides to search products in their extensive database. You'll be amazed and once you know you'll never go back!
