When you’re a kid, rules are the bane of your existence. “Why can’t we just have ice cream for dinner?!” But as you get older, you realize there are certain laws and regulations put in place to help protect you. Like the enforcement of child car seats, the smoking ban on airplanes, and even a simple stop sign. While these laws seem like small, simple changes, they make a world of difference for our health and safety. We believe cosmetic safety reform should fit into this category. Because while you would think the products we use on our hair and body every day would be monitored for harmful ingredients, the truth is that the beauty industry is hardly regulated at all.
Throughout the months of May and June we collaborated with Stand Up To Cancer to bring awareness to the disease, the value of research, and the people it impacts.

In the increasingly crowded safer beauty marketplace, it’s often hard to distinguish what is jargon and what is actually effective and safer for your health. At Beautycounter, we believe in radical transparency and products that are safer by design. To that end, we go well beyond what even the most stringent international safety regulations require, because existing laws just aren’t strong enough.
June 8th is World Oceans Day. A day dedicated to honoring our oceans and spreading the word about how to better preserve them. Not only is the ocean beautiful and fun to play in, it’s also vital to our lives. Did you know the ocean produces 70% of the oxygen we breathe thanks to its marine life? (Source: nationalgeographic.org) Which is why we need to do a better job of taking care of it.
As a female led company, we are a big fan of moms.
So, in honor of Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating our mothers by sharing the best advice we’ve learned from them.
When we know better, we do better, right? Yet, while skin cancer affects one in five Americans, the majority of people in the U.S. fail to wear sunscreen on a daily basis. The simple act of wearing protective SPF can prevent skin cancer and premature aging.
