It’s not only important to watch what you put IN your body but also what you put ON it!!
For quite some time now I’ve been searching for a company that I can trust to provide safe yet effective beauty products. I’ve tried soooo many and have even made my own, but all have been a disappointment when learning a product is not as safe and healthy as I thought or it falls short in the performance category. Then I found Beautycounter.
But first….the importance of using safe beauty products.
Decades of studies show that serious health issues (including, but not limited to asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise, and due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals. Unfortunately we live in a swimming pool of toxic substances – be it the air, water, food, or cleaning products.
Douglas Costle, an administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that, “almost 35,000 of the chemicals used in the US are classified by the EPA as being either definitely or potentially harmful to human health”.
There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. Only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data.
The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. The European Union has banned more than 1,300 ingredients, the US has only banned 11. Beautycounter has banned over 1,500 ingredients setting a new health and safety standard.
I’ve been using Beautycounter products for about 9 months now. Not only is Beautycounter dedicated to putting safe personal care products into the hands of everyone – their products actually work.
Sometimes when trying a more natural alternative (especially make up) the outcome can be less than ideal….Beautycounter has worked so hard to make sure their products are at the best performance standards and I can completely attest and say that their hard work has paid off.
So if you’re looking to take your health into your own hands and take the next step to minimize the harmful toxins you’re exposed to daily – start HERE and order safe personal care products today!!
