After researching environmental toxins for my book 360 Health, I became even more convicted and convinced that using non-toxic products with non-carcinogenic ingredients is a critical piece of our good health and of disease prevention. I never thought I would become a consultant of any sort and am not a "salesy" sort of person. But because I feel so strongly about Beautycounter and helping people find safer and healthier products, I said yes!
We all use personal care items ranging from lotions and creams to makeup and hair care. In fact, the average woman uses 12 personal care products a day. But did you know that in the United States, no major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products has been passed since 1938? Even worse, around 13,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics, but only 10% have been evaluated for safety by the FDA. The E.U. has banned 1,400 chemicals, but the U.S. has only partially banned 30 to date.
And since all of us need to use personal care products, why not use the safest ones available? Why not shop with a company that has 100% transparency in their ingredients and that ranks highest with the Environmental Working Group?
Beautycounter is committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what's required by U.S. law. It has prohibited the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through "The Never List™" -- all while ensuring that products perform and that they're as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.
You can get all of your skincare, makeup, and bath and body products in one place. And you can feel good about your purchases, never giving toxins a second thought. Beautycounter thinks about it, so you don't have to.
Here are my top 6 favorite products, although there are plenty more I'm crazy about.
No.3 Balancing Facial Mask -- charcoal mask that detoxifies and deep cleans
Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage -- tinted moisturizer with SPF
Overnight Resurfacing Peel -- "no-peel peel" ... brightens skin and decreases fine lines
Rejuvenating Night Cream -- anti-aging cream that reduces fine lines and richly hydrates
Charcoal Cleansing Bar -- cleanser that absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out
Lip Gloss -- my favorite is Dahlia
I'd love to be your consultant. Won't you join me on this crusade towards safer skincare?
