1938... why did I post this? Well, as part of #wednesdaywisdom I think it's important to impart you with some knowledge. 1938 was the last year any federal legislation was passed on personal skincare products- why is this important to you? Because that means that there have been NO Laws passed regulating the ingredients in personal care products (think makeup, skincare products, shampoo, deodorant, etc.) in 80 years. Yeah, kind of a big deal. While the U.K. And other countries ban over 1400 ingredients, the US only bans 30. Sick, right? Your skin is your largest organ, and you absorb 60% of everything you put on it... yep, it goes straight into the bloodstream. I don't know about you, but I find this unacceptable. I found this so upsetting that I was compelled to do something about it, so now, not only do I use #Beautycounter, I also sell it. Beautycounter bans over 1500 ingredients in an effort to make change. Change in perception, change in lives, and change in policy. We are the only company in the US with this standard, and stringent screen policy- I say that not for anything other than, we shouldn't be. We shouldn't be the only company who demands this level of protection. Vote with your dollars, folks. I love locking arms with other women who not only want to make change happen, but make it happen through education and a relentless heart for doing good. Whether or not you buy Beautycounter isn't the point. I want you, as friends, to make changes based on this information. Become an educated consumer ask questions, and don't just ask for more transparency, demand it. If you want to learn more about Beautycounter and their amazing skincare, or what changes we are trying to make on the hill, click the link in my bio! Or DM me, I would love to hear from you!
