How I found Beautycounter
Here is a little about my journey to becoming an Beautycounter consultant. As many of you know I strive to do the best I can to treat my one and only body well. After finding out that I needed to go gluten free, my eyes were opened up to the fact that gluten is in everything. I went through my makeup bag and realized almost all of it needed to be replaced. I started with my foundation and lip products as these were the most likely to enter into my body. I found many products that were gluten free but unfortunately had a ton of ingredients and their performance was subpar. So I set out on a quest for cleaner alternatives without compromising on performance. In my search, I found a company called Beautycounter.
Why Choose Beautycounter
Beautycounter is a better beauty company that is on a mission to make the safest products with exceptional performance. The beauty industry has very little regulation and most people are not aware of this. The last major law in the beauty industry in the US was passed in 1938. The United States has banned only 30 ingredients while the European Union has banned 1,400. Studies have shown many of the ingredients that are banned by the EU have links to cancer, infertility, skin sensitivity, asthma, and hormone disruption. The mission of Beautycounter is to help educate and get safer products into the hands of everyone. They also focus on sustainability, transparency, and giving back.

The Never List
In selecting the ingredients to use for their products they have created a never list that is made up of approximately 1,500 harmful or questionable ingredients. These ingredients are banned from Beautycounter products. This includes the 1,400 ingredients that are restricted in the European Union but not the United States.
