I am now a BeautyCounter consultant! I’ll be sharing things I love–nutrition, recipes, holistic living tips, and info about BeautyCounter products on a new instagram here! Follow along for our family’s fun journey.
What is BeautyCounter? It’s a company on a mission to get safer products in to the hands of everyone. [you can learn more by clicking here] They have banned over 1500 harmful chemicals in their products and are working hard every day to improve the quality of what they produce. In addition to this, they are working hard to be environmentally friendly and fight for fair working conditions for people globally.
The United States has not passed a law to regulate what is in our beauty products since 1938, restricting only 250 ingredients. Meanwhile the European Union has banned 1400 chemicals. That’s not saying much about our country’s regulations.
Over a decade of research indicates that health issues such as (but not limited to) asthma, cancer, and infertility are rising. There are over 80,000 chemicals on the market–a good majority of those in beauty products. Research shows that those chemicals can not only affect our hormonal health [in both women and men] but can pass from mother to fetus when a woman is pregnant.
Even worse, the FDA has no authority to remove harmful ingredients from products produced by large corporate beauty companies.
