While fitness and nutrition are important for optimal health–what we put on our bodies–hair and skin–is just as critical.
Research shows us that ingredients in our personal care products–commonly used in the beauty industry–may be linked to potential health risks like cancer, hormone disruption, infertility and other problems.
While Europe bans or partially restricts more than 1400 AND Canada bans 600 harmful and potential harmful chemicals – the US only bans 30 — while more that 80,000 chemicals have been introduced into our marketplace over the last 40 years. During this time, we are seeing an increase in cancer, learning disabilities, allergies, and fertility issues. Because there has not been a significant law passed since 1932–the beauty industry is basically unregulated–meaning not only can harmful chemicals be in our products–but labels don’t have to reflect these chemicals.
We don’t have to compromise our health in the name of beauty. There are alternatives.
Beautycounter goes far beyond the current industry standards to develop formulas and packaging to bring us cutting-edge products that our healthier and safer. We have safer alternatives for our skin and hair care–for the entire family.
