I have always been very physically active and made fairly healthy eating choices. What I didn't think too much about were the household and personal care products that I used. I assumed they were safe! It wasn't until after a brush with cancer and the birth of my son that I started paying attention to what was in my personal care and household products. I learned that what went on my skin was as important as what I ate, as many ingredients pass through the skin into your bloodstream. This knowledge made me determined to make sure that the products I was using were safe for my family!
A friend and business colleague introduced me to a new company called Beautycounter. This company has a three fold purpose that immediately drew me in: 1) Educate the public about the ingredients in products, 2) Provide safer products, and 3) Push for better legislation of the personal care and cosmetics industries (there's only two pages of laws)! This company and its mission were exactly what I had been looking for.
Why am I telling you this? I would like to invite you to join my journey to safer living. Come learn with me about safer household and personal care products and the ways that ingredients can impact your life and the lives of those you love!
