I decided to join Beautycounter as a new adventure to pair along side my new blog adventure. I'm turning 30 this year and have really been thinking about being my best self. I want to eat better, exercise more and use better products for my family and I.
After downloading the Think Dirty App, going through all my products both home, beauty, baby & skincare I was really amazed how bad all the products I was using are. That got me really thinking and researching for new products for our family. I came across Beautycounter and really started to look into their mission and their products.
Beautycounter's mission is: To get safer products into the hands of everyone. That really resonated with me!
Like I said in my previous post: Cosmetics and personal care products are one of the least regulated industries in the United States. Europe and Canada have far more regulation and have banned so many more chemicals. The FDA has banned only 11 chemicals for use in cosmetics while the EU has banned 1,328 chemicals. WHATT!! Correspondingly, the Canadian government maintains and updates a Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist with many of the chemicals listed that are either restricted or prohibited from use in cosmetics. Crazy huh?
EWG.org is also a great resource for researching products. See Beautycounter's EWG scores here.
Beautycounter is committed to banning these ingredients in all of their products. The Never List. They are a certified B Corperation. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
We deserve better so let's doing something about it!
Beautycounter has also aligned themselves with great brands and brands that I love! Such as...
Beautycounter is also sold with GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow's brand. Lauren Conrad has also been known to talk about Beautycounter. Plus some of my favorite bloggers love Beautycounter too! All Against the Grain, Lifestyled Atlanta, In Honor of Design & more!
Also let's be honest, a great way to score discounts & free products is to be a consultant! :)
Wanna join me? Reach out! You can also just be a Band of Beauty Member: For only $29 a year you receive 15% product credit with every order, free shipping on orders over $100 & exclusive special offers—a great deal!
I'll be back with my favorite products & products reviews for the family!
