Join the Beautycounter Movement for Safer Beauty.
I recently joined on as a Beautycounter Consultant. One of the big reasons I decided to join this venture is that the Beautycounter mission aligns with my personal ideals and what our family believes in. In case you didn’t know it, my family runs Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs. We believe in choosing organic whenever possible and products that are clean. Founder Gregg Renfrew decided to start Beautycounter to create beauty and personal care products that were cleaner and safe for her and her family. Beauty companies are not highly regulated in what ingredients they are allowed to use. It is scary when you start to realize what companies are allowed to use in making their products. We are behind in the United States as we have only limited a small number of harmful chemicals used in beauty and personal care products (only 30) while the European Union has banned 1,300! (Beautycounter). If you ask me, this is ridiculous!
What has Beautycounter done to fight against this and to make changes? Beautycounter has created a “Never List” of products that they will not use in their beauty and personal care products. 1,500 ingredients to be exact! Now that is awesome! Beautycounter has partnered with The Environmental Working Group, The Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, and Healthy Child Healthy World to help further their cause.
