So, I would love to tell you about Beautycounter and why I am so passionate about it and the products…. Basically it’s because I want to know that what I am using on my skin and body is safe, non-harmful, but effective ! I believe that many of us take care of ourselves and our children by trying to eat right, exercise right, etc but we don’t even realize that what we are putting on our skin, our largest organ may be harming us tremendously ! I would love to share with you my reasons and how I found out about Beautycounter but as a resource for many people who come to SY, I felt this to be a BIG important piece for our health!
I’ve included just some info for a quick read about Beautycounter!
"We believe that the products you use regularly—cleansers, moisturizers, scrubs—should be gentle, effective, and safe. Ingredients in these products should not add to the load of toxic chemicals that we all carry with us due to daily environmental exposures. Our products provide a safe first layer that leaves you protected and primed for whatever comes next.
Our whole-picture approach to product development ensures that every ingredient goes through Beautycounter’s rigorous screening process before we add it to our products, and that every ingredient we use is fully disclosed. We have nothing to hide. We believe in complete transparency!
It’s been 76 years since the federal government passed a law in the U.S. regulating the ingredients used in cosmetic and personal care products. A lot has changed since then.
While the EU has banned or restricted more than 1,300 harmful and toxic chemicals from personal care products, the US bans or restricts just 11. At Beautycounter, there are 1,500 ingredients we will never use. Every ingredient in our products has a function; nothing is used without careful consideration for efficacy and performance. No unwanted extras, no dyes, no mysteries. Just ingredients with purpose!"
DID YOU KNOW?
1in 3 children will be diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Asthma, or Allergies. Even more troubling, chemicals linked to learning disabilities, breast cancer, fertility and other health issues are allowed in the the products we may be using everyday! Our Kids deserve better, we all deserve better! We have a few favorites for our little ones, Kidscounter as well as the new Babycounter products too! Would love to share them with you and educate you more!
