Safer Skincare with  Beautycounter

Why I choose safer skincare

Safer skincare is a somewhat recent, but very strong passion of mine. I used to think this kind of stuff was for the hippie types, who wanted to live alone in the mountains, raise goats and not have wi-fi. I’m not that kind of person and I really didn’t know why I should care. There must be an agency that oversees personal care products? Surely, it is someone’s job to evaluate and remove harmful cheicals, right?! NOPE. Currently, there is not one governing body with the authority to keep harmful products and ingredients off the shelves. Regular, everyday things, like shampoo and mascara can legally be made with known carcinogens and hormone disruptors. With over 80,000 chemicals on the market, you’d think the laws would be a little more strict!

We know from research that autoimmune disorders, cancers and other diseases are on the rise and are partially due to our constant toxin exposure, and, to make matters worse, a major federal law concerning cosmetics has not been passed since 1938. Let that sink in-1938! It’s been 80+ years since ingredients and the creation processes within the beauty industry have been updated.

Since 1938, people have created milk cartons, velcro, microwaves, credit cards, personal computers, and cell phones etc… These other fields have moved forward and made beneficial advances, while beauty has been left in the dust. It’s the 2020’s (!) and we deserve to know what is in our products. We deserve safer skincare because beauty should be good for you.

More personally, I choose safer skincare because of my daughter. My little girl who develops so quickly is the reason… My baby who is so much bigger than when she was born, who no longer needs me to hold her head up, who now says words like “kitty” and “strawberry” is the reason I choose safer skincare.

As a mama, I want to give her the best chance at a wonderful, fulfilling, and beautiful life. In those early months when I was face to face with the sleep deprivation(!) and constant crying, I could see. I could see her grow and change so quickly and it really opened my eyes to the things that could hinder her development. The chemicals we are exposed to everyday are dangerous, especially to our little ones who are in critical stages of development every day. Many of chemicals are known to cause cancer and disrupt normal hormone function. Part of my responsibility is to teach my baby girl how to best take care of herself. I cannot protect her from every bad chemical or toxin in this world, but I can help her see that our bodies deserve to be treated well. I will teach her that we have a choice. I will show her that we do not have to settle and we can speak up for what is important. I will encourage her to seek education around the products we use because when we know better, we do better
