Hi, I’m Katja! And if you follow my blog, you already know that I’m passionate about helping people live healthier, cleaner lives through simple real food recipes. But there’s more to clean living then the food we put into our bodies. Clean living encompasses our entire lifestyles, especially the products we put on our bodies every single day.
That is the MAIN reason that I decided to partner with my favorite safer skincare company, Beautycounter. Over the years, I have been super selective about the brands that I partner with. Anything I promote MUST be in line with my values. And it must be something that I use myself on a daily basis. After deep research and using the products myself for a couple of years now, I am proud to say that I love working with Beautycounter and 100% support their mission of getting safer products into the hands of everyone.
The personal care industry in the United States is drastically behind the times. There has been no real legislation to increase safety since 1938. And without proper legal standards, companies are basically free to police themselves, which is why we are still seeing chemicals being used in everyday personal care products that have been banned in the European Union.
I chose Beautycounter because their products are amazing and rigorously screened for safety. I chose Beautycounter because not only is it a company that sells great safer products that perform well, it’s also a B-Corp that’s deeply involved in changing legislature on the local, state, and federal levels. Beautycounter is company with integrity, committed to real change to make this world a better place. I am proud to be part of that change.
Why is Beautycounter Different from Other Brands?
THE NEVER LIST : Beautycounter has banned more than 1,500 ingredients, yet their products perform like high end salon and cosmetic products. From the make-up and skincare lines to the hair-care line, it’s all glamour-worthy – without all the junk. Some natural cosmetic brands use only 100% organic ingredients. This is as pure as makeup can get, but often, the performance is lacking. While Beautycounter uses both synthetic and organic ingredients, they never compromise on the safety of the ingredients.
EVERY PRODUCT: Every single Beautycounter product is rated between 0-3 on EWG’s Skindeep database, which is the most amazing go-to resource for product safety! If you haven’t checked that database out for some of the products you are using in your home, I highly recommend it. You can download it on your phone and research all of your household products on the go while you shop.
TESTING TESTING TESTING: Beautycounter has developed a rigorous ingredient screening process, looking for data on skin irritation, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, and more. Beautycounter screens every single ingredient for safety by reviewing the scientific literature and commissioning studies where data is lacking. They test every batch of color cosmetics THREE TIMES for heavy metal contamination (did you know “natural” makeup, like mineral makeup, is at risk for high metals contamination?) They’re transparent about every ingredient they use and why. And even better? They use active ingredients that work.
