Better YOU: Beautycounter
Truth. Transparency. Beauty.
Why did I choose Beautycounter?
Most of us try our best to lead a healthy lifestyle. We try to make the healthiest food choices for ourselves and our children, buy organic when we can--and exercise (at least on a semi-regular basis). So in that same spirit, I’ve decided to take a closer look at what I’m putting ON my body--in addition to what I put in it--which is where Beautycounter comes in. I care very much about my health and the health of the planet-- I'm guessing you do, too! If I'm right, you're going to want to take a closer look at Beautycounter...I promise.
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues are all on the rise--and this is due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals. This resonates with me on a personal level, as I am a cancer survivor of 2 years. I've also watched other family members and friends struggle with health issues including diabetes, cancer, and infertility. Soooo, how are we being protected in the US? The short answer: we're not. The last time a federal law was passed to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products was in 1938! This is an unacceptable statistic in my book. The European Union, in contrast, has spent the past two decades banning or restricting the use of 1,300+ ingredients. The US has banned 11 to date. 11 . ELEVEN!!! It’s up to us to educate ourselves about the dangers of mystery ingredients being used in our health and beauty products. This is where making BETTER, more informed choices comes in to play. Beautycounter IS the better choice! We have an extensive "Never List" (1300 banned in EU + more) of ingredients that will NEVER be used in our products! We believe in transparency, so we will disclose exactly what IS in – and what IS NOT in all of our products. Finally--a beauty brand that puts our health first!
This is why I joined Beautycounter--to be part of this mission; to bring about change, & to put SAFE products into the hands of everyone!
