You can’t unlearn what you learn

Beautycounter-Just_the_Facts-1939The last time the government passed a federal law regulating the use of ingredients in personal care products was 1938. That’s 75 years ago. In layman’s terms: The five billion dollar beauty industry is at full liberty to use whatever ingredient they want in the products you use every day.

Known carcinogens, hormone disruptors, skin irritants, allergens are fair game, as are ingredients thought to contribute to infertility, ADHD, the sharp rise of Autism, and cancer.

These are all present in many of the cosmetics and personal care items that line the showers and bathroom counters of families everywhere.

We deserve better, don’t you think?

Check the items in your home to see how they stack up on the health & safety scale at EWG’s Skin Deep Database. The lower the product’s score, the safer it is.

We feel like its a priority to pass this fact on. If enough people learn the truth and change their buying habits, we can create a safer tomorrow.  Teaming up with Beautycounter is a great way for us to spread the word and offer a solution that’s safe, affordable and effective.  Learn more about Beautycounter, they’re working to reform the laws that protect us.

The Truth Serum

My guess, is that once you start learning about what lies beneath product labels, you won’t be able to stop learning either. And that’s where The Truth Serum comes in: there are solutions, and we are here to find the ones that are easy-to-implement, affordable, chic and sustainable. We do the heavy-lifting for you—we sift through all the ingredient lists, the products, and tell you which ones deserve your dollars and how to implement them easily into your daily routine.

From helpful graphs to behind-the-scenes interviews, Beautycounter has tapped tastemakers, industry heavyweights, do-it-all entrepreneurs, and even members of their own team—for a constant source of honest, in-depth information into the issues that matter most.  They are in the main channel for reforming safety legislation and we think its the best way to stay tuned into clean products for you and your family.

Clean It Up

Most people use 10 products on average before they leave the house in the morning.  When you do the math, the startling fact is, you cover yourself in hundreds on ingredients each time you decide to “take a shower and get ready”. That’s why its so important to pay attention to what your products have in them, so that you can be aware of how exposed you really are and make the changes needed to protect yourself and your family.


Automate Your Shower

The best way we recommend cleaning up your shower routine is to automate it.  Making sure you don’t run out of the “good stuff” is essential in really cutting out unnecessary chemicals and ingredients from your daily routine. Running out means heading to a drugsotre or megamart to pick up products in a pinch and that will cost you.  Not just money, but time and your safety.

Simple Shipments. Immediate Positive Changes In Your Skin and Hair

Automating your shower with Beautycounter’s Body Collection takes care of your Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash and Body Lotion all in one simple shipment.  The collection last around 30 days for 2-3 people and if your family is bigger, just add a second set.  In the end you’ll save yourself exposure to hundreds of chemicals every single day..

Whats and Endocrine Disruptor?

More often than not, when we think of how exposure to chemicals can harm us, we conjure images of barrels full of toxic sludge with the tell-tale skull and crossbones. Truth be told, that simply is not the case. Some chemicals can be harmful even in really low doses, like hormone (or endocrine) disruptors. In fact, tiny amounts of these chemicals can sometimes do more damage than large amounts. It may be counterintuitive, but the body is used to dealing with really small amounts of natural hormones. So when foreign endocrine disruptors from our environment—like our food and our cosmetics—enter our bodies in tiny doses throughout the day, they mimic real life.

The endocrine system is extraordinarily complex and important—it regulates our mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, sexual function, and reproductive processes. Any of these changes can produce serious developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune problems.

Do You Wonder How People Get Cancer?

Did you know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in their lifetime? We can’t point the finger to just one thing. It may be genetics, but it may also be the personal care products we use, the food we eat, and the air we breathe. So we ask: Why not control what you can control?

Cancer is caused by changes in a cell’s DNA. Some of these changes can be inherited. Others may be caused by outside exposures, or “environmental exposures,” (like toxic ingredients in personal care products).

Substances that can lead to cancer are called carcinogens. Some carcinogens damage DNA directly, and others may cause cells to divide at a faster than normal rate, which increases the chance that DNA changes will occur.

The European Union Is Ahead Of The Game
