If you’re like me, you trust the big brand names that have been around for years and believe their products are reliable and safe for the little people in our lives that we love so much! Would you be surprised to hear that 80-90% of the ingredients used in cosmetic and skincare items are NOT tested to see if they have any negative impact on human health? I certainly was! Which is why I’ve made it a mission to learn more and help educate!
As I started to do a little research, I learned…
Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRPs) are used in many personal care products , particularly in shampoos and liquid baby soaps. These chemicals, which help prevent bacteria from growing in water-based products, can be absorbed through the skin and have been linked to allergic skin reactions and cancer.
No doubt, this is a public health issue!!
Now is the time to educate and to take a stance on our personal and family’s health!
They are taking a stance for change and you can too!
60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body.
We love Beautycounter because they are…
- Committed to educate families to check labels so we can start controlling our environments
- 100% transparent on the ingredients used in their products
- Working hard to update the laws that surround the beauty and health industry to keep us and our families healthy
