Your skin is not only your largest organ, it’s also your largest detoxification organ.
AND WHAT YOU PUT ON IT MATTERS!
If you want clear, healthy skin, it’s critical to use personal care and beauty products that are free of harmful ingredients that can disrupt how your body is meant to function, adding another layer of stress for your body to combat.
Perhaps like you, I didn't know what I didn't know.
I didn’t know that harmful ingredients are legally allowed in beauty and personal care products. These ingredients impact our health in ways you'd never imagine. Harsh sulfates, formaldehyde-releasers, artificial fragrances, PEGs, mineral oil, carbon black and heavy metals.
These ingredients are known to disrupt hormonal function, affecting almost every function in your body from digestion to fertility, and have been linked to a number of health problems from allergies to diseases like cancer.
The scary thing is that is perfectly legal in the United States because currently there's only one and a half pages of legislation that regulate the multi-million dollar beauty industry.
In the U.S., there hasn't been any legislation passed on this since 1938.
As a Functional Nutrition Coach, I teach people how to make diet and lifestyle changes to improve their health. This includes how we’re exposed to harmful toxins inside of our homes every day, and what to do about it.
The best defense is avoidance and when it comes to beauty and personal care products, the easiest way to do this is to use products that have been tested for safety.
Beautycounter is the leader in the clean, safer beauty movement. We educate, make high-performing, safer products, and advocate for transparency and more health protective laws.
Unlike the food industry, in the personal care and beauty industry terms like "organic" and "natural" doesn't mean anything because there haven’t been any standards set as to what those terms should mean. It's the wild, wild west.
At Beautycounter, our mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone.
We fulfill this mission by creating products that blend safety and high performance, and we’re committed to our rigorous ingredient safety standards that includes third-party testing that takes place on raw materials, at product formulation, and during the supply chain production process.
We also advocate tirelessly on the national stage for greater transparency and regulation in the beauty industry.
When I use Beautycounter products, I know that I'm not compromising quality for safety. I can still look and feel polished with the peace of mind of knowing that I'm not harming my health!
