Do You Know What’s in Your Beauty Products?
Did You Know…
- A woman uses approximately 12 products a day, which can equate to over 100 different Chemicals.
- There are about 12,000 ingredients commonly used in personal care products, and 80% of them have NEVER been tested for.
- There has not been a significant federal law passed governing the personal care industry in the U.S. since 1938
- The Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful (lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates) in the products we put on our bodies AND on our kids every single day… day after day.
Our mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone. We believe that the products you use regularly — cleansers, moisturizers, scrubs, makeup — should be gentle, effective, and safe. Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including, but not limited to asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise, and due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
Compared to the European Union, the U.S. is WAY behind when it comes to our health and safety. The E.U. has banned close to 1,400 known or potentially harmful chemicals from the use of personal care products. The U.S has only banned 30. Beautycounter has the strictest ingredient selection process in the industry and bans more than 1500! We know that WE DESERVE BETTER and IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE!!! Effective, gorgeous products CAN be made without toxic chemicals.
