Keepin’ My Kids Clean and Healthy

29-Beautycounter-Kidscounter_Category_824x376_1_1

Friday, I shared tons of information about ingredients to NEVER use in any skin-care or personal-care products.   I have been so careful when purchasing products for our children to use, because this list is scary knowing how often they shower, moisturize, and put on suntan lotion.  

I’m glad NONE of these ingredients are in any product carefully created by  BEAUTYCOUNTER.

Warmer days means more time outside, thus, its time to pull out the sunscreen –
be sure it is 100% safe for your family!

26seconds



Every single time you shower, wash your face, put on body lotion and perfume/cologne, etc…you are potentially exposing your body to toxins.  Take a look at how many toxins the average woman is exposed to each day.  Not to mention personal care items that are next to the most fragile skin on our bodies for many hours each day during our menstrual cycles.

I’m so excited to be able to share a product line with you that stands for something so near and dear to my heart – keeping me and my family healthy!   They stand up against the government regulations for the beauty care industry that has been absent for over 100+ years.  They stand up against ingredients that have no business being in any product that touches the skin of an infant or small child.  They stand up for you and me.  Which gives me great joy to stand up for them and applaud their efforts.   I love every product that I have tried and I have complete confidence in the direction they are going – creating the safest products for all of us.   MEN – WOMEN – BOYS – GIRLS – of all ages.  

Simply click here and begin using products you can use with full confidence!

10 THINGS You Didn’t Know About the Personal Care Industry and Our Health

10thingsyou

We often find that people are shocked when we tell the Beautycounter story. They assume, understandably, that the personal care industry is regulated, but that’s just not the case. Here, Founder and CEO Gregg Renfrew takes us through 10 things you didn’t know about our health and the products that we use every day. She believes that we all deserve better—in fact, this belief is at the core of everything we do here at Beautycounter, and why our products are developed on a foundation of safety and transparency.

20141015_Beautycounter-Mobile-03_640x920


(1) The United States has not passed a federal law governing the cosmetics industry since 1938.
(2) There are approximately 12,000 chemicals used in the cosmetics industry—about 90% of these have never been assessed for the impact on long-term health.
(3) On average, an American woman uses 12 beauty products every day.
(4) This means that she’s likely exposed to 100 or more chemicals in those 12 products.
(5) Though it hasn’t been proven, some believe that women who wear lipstick will consume seven pounds of it, on average, over the course of a decade.
(6) Because of intellectual property laws, companies do not need to disclose what’s in “fragrance,” which is considered a “trade secret.” It may include hundreds of secret ingredients.
(7) The European Union has banned or restricted 1300 chemicals from cosmetics, but the United States has only banned or restricted 11.
(8) In the United States, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes.
(9) Currently, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Only about 10% of these women carry a gene for the disease.
(10) 1 in 3 children will be diagnosed with autism, ADHD, allergies, or asthma. Though these issues are complex, exposure to toxic chemicals is thought to be one factor for the increase in these disorders or health issues.
