Five years ago I got really sick.
A combination of things like stress, diet, excessive antibiotic use, and harmful ingredients in the personal care products I was using had slowly chipped away at my immune + digestive system and left me with scary chronic health issues.
It’s taken years of research, finding the right health team, and diet + lifestyle changes for me to begin to recover (and I still have a lot of healing to go)!
One of the first lifestyle changes my doctor had me make was to stop using commercial beauty, cleaning, and personal care products.
Did you know?
- 80% of ingredients in beauty products have never been tested for safety
- Chemicals linked to cancer, infertility, learning disabilities, and other health issues are allowed in the products we use every day
- The United States hasn’t passed a law regulating the cosmetic industry since 1938. This means companies in the beauty industry are not required to divulge the ingredients in their products.
- The EU bans 1,400 harmful ingredients from their personal care products, while the US only bans 30
Beautycounter, being committed to safer beauty, has banned 1,800 harmful ingredients from their products.
