THE MORE YOU KNOW

Kristen's July Beautycounter Update

Happy July 4th Long Weekend!

Summer is in full swing! My boys are at overnight camp for one more week so Lucia and I have been enjoying some "girl time" in Kennebunk. Lazy days at the beach (with plenty of BC sunscreen!), justifiable ice cream outings and trips to the library and candy store. I so appreciate the flexibility this job offers and how I can seamlessly bring my business from one state to another without missing a beat.


The week before I left for Maine, I offered individual one on ones for women who wanted to shop but had limited time. Women came over to my house for 15-20 minutes to try on and check out the Beaurycounter collection.. I loved having the opportunity to really get to know what their awareness level was with personal care products - mainly because I really didn't question a thing before joining Beautycounter. It was inspiring to know that so many women have already been proactive of what they are choosing to put on their bodies and prod its for their children. For women, like myself, who were in the dark about the unregulated industry, it provided them a safe format to ask questions, get information, become aware and choose products that are not only beautiful, high performing but safe.


As you know, Beautycounter's mission is about providing safe and effective products and bringing awareness to every consumer. The other day I was shopping for shampoo and picked up a bottle that was marketed as Paraben-free. I turned over the bottle to read the list of ingredients and was surprised that although it was Paraben-free is had 10 other ingredients that are on BC"s Never List. I put it back on the shelf and was reminded once again that because the personal care industry is not regulated, companies can create a concoction of harmful ingredients but market it as "all natural" or "organic" even if just one ingredient in a slew of hundreds falls into that category. Not okay but unfortunately allowed.


There is nothing more empowering than becoming an educated consumer and choosing which brands you want to give your money and business to. I don't know about you, but I certainly want to support companies that has my health and my families health and safety at the forefront.

JUST SAY NO TO OXYBENZONE!

I know I've posted information on sunscreen before but because it's a product we are using day in and day out In the summer months, it"s important to remember to choose a sunscreen that is Zinc Oxide based and not made with Oxybenzone which is a hormone disruptor. I have to admit, I now cringe when I hear the sound of a spray sunscreen being used at the beach. Bad for your lungs and horrible for the enviornment! Remember, sometimes convenience does not equate with safety!


Don't forget to download the Healthy Livng app and see where your sunscreen rates. Beautycounter's sunscreen was just rated #1 by EWG. We offer a lotion, a sunstick and lip balm. A larger version of the sunstixk will be coming out soon - stay tuned!
