Hello friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend! My weekend was so busy and it felt like it completely flew by. Last week was so fun and busy too but the absolute highlight was a Beautycounter event I hosted for my best friend here in my home. It ended up being such a fun night full of wine, snacks and so much info about the beauty and skincare products that myself and so many of my friends were using.
After hosting the event and learning more about all of the toxic and harmful ingredients in the products I was using everyday, I decided to become an ambassador and consultant for the company as well and I am SO excited. If you are not familiar with Beautycounter, it is a beauty and skincare line that is committed to getting safer and healthier products into everyone’s hands. Did you know that over the past two decades, the European Union has banned more than 1,300 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date.
Learning that the United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938 and that companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about safety was terrifying. In some cases, we are using products daily on ourselves and our children filled with chemicals that could be harmful and have long-term health effects.
If you would like to learn more about Beautycounter, their mission, and how to provide safer and healthier products to you and your family, let me know! I know that I am completely shocked with all of the information I learned and I want every woman and mom to learn as much as they can about the products they are using!
Have a great week and see you next time! xoxo
