First of all some great news: Beauty Counter is now available in Canada. I know many of you have been asking when it would move north and it has!
I use Beauty Counter products because I know they are safe. So many products labeled natural and safe these days aren’t really natural and safe if you look closely at the ingredients (see the never list at the bottom of this post).
The reason I trust Beauty Counter is because they are actually trying to bring about change in a largely unregulated industry.
“Skin care and beauty products are some of the least-regulated consumer products on the market. Consider this: The last time Congress passed a major law to regulate cosmetic ingredients was in 1938. The United States has only partially restricted 11 ingredients from use in the beauty industry; the European Union has banned nearly 1,400. It’s safe to say we’re dangerously behind the times.”
Boo loves the kids line and I love that they are all the same size and that I can buy the pumps to use over and over…it regulates how much product she uses. My sister is due to have a new baby in June so I’m excited that Beauty Counter has recently added a baby line to their products. An all-over gentle wash, a protective balm, and a soothing skin oil:
Here’s what Boo uses from Beauty Counter’s Kids Counter line:
This is Beauty Counter’s list of ingredients to never use on your skin. You can check your existing products against. I carry it in my wallet to check products if I’m out and about. I created a PDF you can print off onto card stock as well (click here to download or click the image to open and print):
