I'm a Senior Consultant for Beautycounter. Why? Our health. My health, your health, the health of everyone I know.
My family and I have been plagued with auto-immune diseases and other health issues for years. 4 years ago we gave up all highly processed foods and took a long hard look at the products we use to clean our home. 3 years ago we decided to eat mostly paleo, as a way to combat our health issues. Changes were happening. We got off medications, saved thousands of dollars a month, started feeling incredibly better. Changing what we put into our body was our best medicine. We felt better with the products we were using in our home and the foods we were eating, especially with our kids.
Yet, after years of trying brand after brand of safer skin care, safer sun screen, safer make up, we could not find an effective safer option for us, which resulted in disappointing use of a product until it ran out, or use of products that weren't serving our bodies in the way we knew we should.
Your skin is your largest organ, and it absorbs everything you put on it. If we are watching what we put into our mouths, what we clean our homes with, why aren't we worried as much about what we put on our skin?
The USA only bans or restricts 30 ingredients from being in our skin care and make up products. Europe bans or restrics 1400. Beautycounter bans 1500. 1500 ingredients and chemicals that can cause health problems, cancer, infertility, you name it. They lobby the government for stricter and safer beauty standards. They educate people and the industry on what is safe to be on our skin. They test ingredients that aren't being tested elsewhere. They list every ingredient that is used in their products. They are transparent. They are on a mission to educate and bring safer beauty products to the world. This is my why.
I was fortunate enough for a friend to share her products with me, sending me with a basket to try. This stuff was effective. The skin care products are making my skin look even better than the best products I used before. The Countersun mineral sun screen is a saving grace from torturous applications of other mineral sunscreens at the beach. The make up is so natural and light feeling I can't believe it, even though I am hardly needing much make up anymore!
Safer and effective. My why.
