What is Beautycounter?
Beautycounter is a disruptive beauty brand that creates and sells safer and effective, high-performing skincare and color cosmetics. Our skincare products are for the ENTIRE family and are safer because we prohibit the use of over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients!
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!
I LOVE that Beautycounter has the strictest ingredient selection process in the industry and prohibits the use of more than 1500 known or questionable ingredients. They do the research for me and I know that what I am putting on my skin and on my family’s skin is safe.
We know that WE DESERVE BETTER and IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE!!! Effective, gorgeous products CAN be made without toxic chemicals.
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.

So… Why Did I Become A Beautycounter Consultant?
I will be the first to say that NEVER in a million years did I see myself becoming a Beautycounter Consultant (or become part of any direct sales company at all). But life is full of surprises! After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and having to resign from my job as a Pathologists’ Assistant, my life vision changed.
A friend of mine then introduced me to Beautycounter. I tried the products on myself and my daughters and LOVED them. Learning that the products were made without the use of over 1500 known or potentially harmful ingredients was icing on the cake. She then mentioned the business opportunity of becoming a Beautycounter Consultant and I was instantly intrigued.
It had been one year since I resigned, my health still was not great and we needed money. As a family of four, being on one income is tough… and that’s an understatement! However, I just could not see myself becoming a consultant since I never had any sales experience. I thought of every reason not to become a consultant and put off making the decision for months… then something hit me and I decided why not try?
To Be Honest…
Honestly, being a Consultant was not easy in the beginning and I own that it was 100% my fault (thanks to my amazing ability to overthink everything). However, the positives far outweigh the negatives. I have had the opportunity to be at home with my daughters. To see them reach every milestone as they grow up. To volunteer in their school and not worry when they get sick. I am pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and still using my medical background (I mean do you know what those harmful ingredients can do to your body?). As a Beautycounter Consultant, I am in a position to make my own hours and contribute to the family finances therefore taking some stress off of my husband’s shoulders and that is priceless.
I know that the opportunities and potential for this business are endless as long as I put the work into it. I am always looking for people who want more to join my team. And by more I mean people looking to have more of a social impact; those looking for more income; and/or those looking to make a change for themselves, their families and our society. Why? Because we all deserve better.
