Did you know the last time Congress passed a major law overseeing the cosmetic industry was in 1938? The law, which is only one-and-a-half pages long, does little to protect our health; harmful cosmetics ingredients are allowed in the products we put on our bodies every day. In contrast to the U.S., the European Union has banned or restricted nearly 1,400 chemicals from cosmetics. It’s safe to say the U.S. is dangerously behind the times.
Beautycounter is a beauty brand committed to cosmetics reform and is on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. Beautycounter’s Ingredient Selection Process starts by banning over 1,500 of the industry’s worst offenders. The ingredients used in Beautycounter’s formulas are rigorously and regularly screened to ensure none have links to health like cancer, infertility, hormone disruption, or early puberty.
As a company, Beautycounter is moving the personal care industry in three key ways: through educating consumers about ingredient safety concerns, by providing solutions with innovative products, and by advocating for more health-protective laws on Capitol Hill.
Consultant Judith Lamb states, “As a Beautycounter consultant, I was drawn to this company because of its approach to making products safer and affordable. I am opposed for moral reasons to the testing of cosmetic products or any product on animals. I was surprised to find out that numerous companies state that they do not use animal testing; however, you might be surprised to know that these companies are no longer owned by individuals and that they have been sold to companies that do animal testing.”
Beautycounter is forthright in its commitment to bring consumers the best and healthiest products. The Brightening Oil has been touted by fans and awarded high praise by Allure Magazine.
Offered in the product lineup are numerous treatment lines and cosmetics and can be purchased online with or without the solid advice from one of Beautycounter’s independent consultants. Safety, products that perform, and no animal testing is just the beginning of what you will find at Beautycounter.
If you’re drawn to be a part of the movement, you can shop online or with an independent consultant as a client or as a Band of Beauty member. You can share what you’ve learned with your loved ones and your greater community as a host or by joining our team. No matter how you support the Beautycounter movement, your voice matters.
