I have always shared with you everything that I know about how to move your body, what we put in our bodies and NOW what products we use on our bodies!
I have been a yoga teacher for over 10 years and I have shared with you my practice and what types of food have fueled me.
However, I was missing a huge chunk of information! I totally figured that the products I was using were safe and regulated. I only recently learned that I was completely wrong.
This is not meant to scare you but companies are allowed to use ingredients that are hidden by using words like 'fragrance' and other technical terms that you may not know are linked to cancer, reproductive issues, and hormone disruption. Worse some companies don't even label what is in the products because THEY DON'T HAVE TO!
The EU currently bans some 1300 chemicals, meanwhile the U.S. has only restricted 11! Say what?!! Even my very expensive shampoo and conditioner (sulfate free) had some questionable ingredients. I was really bummed, I loved my products but it was time to get clean with what I was putting on me.
Beautycounter has banned 1500 ingredients but is also on a mission to get safer skincare into everyone's hands. They are taking on the government to get laws passed to protect the public. This is definitely a company I wanted to stand behind.
Luckily, I love their products too. I was slow to jump in but every single thing I have tried, I love. I started with their baby collection, a must have for all new moms. After picking up a few more of their products like the balancing oil and cleansing balm, I tried a few make-up products (the mascara just won Allure magazine 2016 Best of Beauty Awards).
So at the end of the day I am so proud to promote these products because they are safe but they also perform really, really well!
