You don’t know what you don’t know.
That’s basically how I sum up my journey to finding Beautycounter.
Two of the biggest things I didn’t know.
1 – What good products were capable of doing for me.
2 – What a trash industry all of our personal care products come from.
I’m talking like NO regulation. Unless you count what was passed eons ago. Since like 1938.
A few statistics I learned that put me in a position to make some changes & never turn back:
*The EU has banned or restricted somewhere around 1400 chemicals from being used in personal care products. Last I checked, the US had banned only 30.
*200 industrial chemicals can/were found in the cord blood of newborns (I’ll let you guess how it got there)
*70% of American women believe their products are safe (like I said, you don’t know what you don’t know)
*80,000 ingredients have been introduced since the last legislation was passed & out of those only 20% were tested on humans.
So I decided I’m worth it. My kiddo is worth it.
We deserve to be the best selves that we can. And that starts with how we treat our bodies. You do, too!
So two things I want to say.
One – don’t be overwhelmed. You can start small. Think of the 2 or 3 products you use the most. Start finding safer alternatives there.
Two – Download the EWG’s Healthy Living App. You can scan your current products or products you’re considering purchasing. It rates products by safety. Knowledge in your pocket.
