Beautycounter is a company that is committed to delivering safer cosmetics and personal care products into the hands of everyone. I first discovered this company in 2018 when I was looking to replace my chemical-filled cosmetics with safer options that wouldn't harm me. After one year of using their products personally, I decided to make it that much easier for folks to access safer products themselves by becoming a consultant with the company.
As a consumer who knows that not everything that is marketed to us is safe, I value a company who is transparent about their ingredients and where they are sourced. When searching through the Beautycounter website, you'll notice that an ingredient list is included with each product, and on top of this, Beautycounter has an Ingredient Glossary where you can learn where each ingredient is sourced. These are important things to know when choosing cosmetics and personal care products.
Beautycounter products have some of the highest safety ratings available for cosmetics and skin care products, and their commitment to safety, ethical sourcing of ingredients, and transparency with their formulations are all in alignment with my commitment to support patients. After all, one of the goals I strive to achieve with my patients is to eliminate any obstacles to cure.
Many (if not most) cosmetics and personal care products on store shelves and in our home cupboards contain chemicals that are proven to disrupt hormone balance, cause organ dysfunction such as the kidney failure, cause allergies and asthma, and even cause cancer. If our goal is to achieve optimal health, we have to consider if some of the products we are using every day may, in fact, be poisoning us.
