Why I use Beautycounter
I have close friends who are my age and are getting sick. They are getting all forms of cancer, without having any of the risk factors. They don’t smoke. They are fit and healthy. They are young. There must be some kind of connection between the chemicals in our environment and how our body reacts to them.
We know that these toxic chemicals are getting into our bodies. For the most part, one toxic chemical in just one product is not likely to cause harm. But because many are building up in our bodies over time, we can never know which exposure pushed us from being seemingly healthy to being ill. Chemicals like bisphenol A (BPA), fire retardants, and nonstick and waterproofing chemicals have all been found in the bodies of average Americans and even in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies.
By making a few simple changes, you can begin to reduce your family’s exposures.
Women use an average of 12 personal care products per day, containing 168 ingredients. In many ways our skincare and makeup is more important than our diet. I live in a household where we think not only about what we eat, but what we put on our skin, and what we wash our bodies with. My daughter will grow up knowing that this is important.
