There are many ingredients allowed in popular beauty and skin care products that impact our health in ways you'd never imagine. They are things like harsh sulfates, formaldehyde-releasers, artificial fragrances, PEGs, mineral oil, carbon black and heavy metals. These harmful ingredients can affect our hormonal function, fertility, and have been linked to allergies and diseases like cancers.
The scary thing is that these practices are perfectly legal because there hasn't been legislation governing the personal care industry passed on this since 1938.
At Beautycounter, our mission is to get to safe products into the hands of everyone. This is why we're asking Congress to take action and you can help!
