That polish? Definitely NOT a clean beauty product. I use it, however, less than two months a year so I don’t lose too much sleep over it.
In a reflective moment, I sat back and thought about all the products I personally use in a typical day. Only two (three if you count floss) are not from Beautycounter. I make my own deodorant/antiperspirant from Beautycounter Body Wash and baking soda. This polish in glorious cyanotic blue-green and a hair gum/paste are my only products with questionable ingredients.
Transparency matters to me. I read every label on every food package I pick up. These days, food in a package is very seldom found in my cart. I prefer to eat the ingredients. This transparency matters so much, I bought a 1/4 of a grass-fed cow and half a pastured pig from a friend who happens to be a farmer. I buy organic produce when possible. It depends on availability, price, appearance, budget etc.
Naturally, the desire for knowing what I’m eating spilled over to my products. This is where Beautycounter came into my life.
The impact of safer ingredients in personal care products and cosmetics is far grander than we really comprehend. We use our products. Our health is impacted. We wash off our products. Where do you think that water winds up eventually? Our aquatic life is one group that is paying that cost.
We want to look good but our health should not be paying the price. We also want high performing products without remortgaging our homes. We want safe but we don’t want our makeup to look like Alice Cooper after an hour.
Yes, Beautycounter products are more expensive than what you buy at the drugstore or grocery store. The products are on par price-wise with a lot of items at Sephora, but that is where the similarities stop.
Why would you want to spend more on something that seems similar at first glance?
🚫 no fillers, you use less of each product so a little goes a long way
🚫 no phthalates to affect your hormones or your kids hormones. The hormone fairy has a tough enough job, let’s not make it harder
🚫 no parabens, which are plasticizers to help your body absorb the harmful ingredients
🚫 never any animal testing, ever
🚫 no micro beads in any product to harm our aquatic life. Where did you think the stuff we rinse down the drain winds up?
