I sometimes get questions about various products that I use—everything from eyeliner to frying pans.
And I totally get it. There are toxins in so many unsuspecting areas (coal tar and petroleum in your makeup, anyone?), and “greenwashing” is so rampant in product marketing, that it makes it really hard to know what is truly natural and nontoxic… and what isn’t.
In fact, I recently discovered a report that found asbestos in makeup for kids. Woah! If there’s asbestos in something marketed to kids… there’s surely asbestos in my own makeup products.
That’s Why I Was So Psyched When I Discovered Beautycounter…
I’ve always tried my very best to use all natural solutions for everything in my life. (Hey, I don’t even use much soap!) But sometimes mama wants to put on a little lipstick—just not that stuff from the drugstore (One study found heavy metals in most lipsticks tested!)
Beautycounter, on the other hand, aims to get safer products in the hands of consumers. The company sells over 150 items, from lipstick, to moisturizer, to shampoo, all guaranteed free from more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals, including over 1,400 chemicals banned or restricted in personal care products in other parts of the world like the European Union.
