Today, Beautycounter Founder and CEO Gregg Renfrew is speaking at the Environmental Media Association Impact Summit on a panel titled The Age of Transparency. As a company built on core values of transparency, progress, and education, we are constantly asked, “What does transparency mean to Beautycounter?” It’s a good question—and one that’s built into our DNA.
You might think oily or combination skin is the trickiest type to work with, but it doesn’t have to be! With the right products and a solid regimen, it can be just as easy to manage and balance as other skin types. Some extra attention goes a long way to prevent and protect, so you can walk away looking more radiant.
You don’t need a 16-step skin care regimen, a weekly facial, or your dermatologist on speed dial to help keep your skin radiant. If dull skin or dark spots are your main concern, you’re going to love The Beautycounter+ Brightening Collection, a line of targeted treatments infused with skin-brightening vitamin C complex. All three products—a mask, mist, and oil—are specially formulated to enhance your existing skin care regimen. Incorporate them with the Nourishing Essential line to reveal a more radiant, even skin tone.
As the years pass, your skin definitely changes, so it makes sense that your skin care routine should, too. This doesn’t mean you need to overhaul your beauty arsenal with a 20-step regimen (seriously, who has time for that?). But it does mean it’s a good idea to start weaving treatments into your core beauty regimen for firmer skin.
Wandering down the beauty aisle, you’re likely to see words like “organic” or “chemical-free” on your mascara or body wash labels. They match your healthy lifestyle, so you’re good, right? Actually, it may not be that simple.
Because of major loopholes in U.S. federal law, cosmetics brands are able to boldly make claims like “natural” and “non-toxic” without proper regulations, so most of these terms end up becoming meaningless. This is known as greenwashing.
We’ve got some big news for little ones… Calming Diaper Rash Cream and a Classic Diaper Bag just arrived!

An amazing beauty routine doesn’t have to suffer in cold, humid, or rainy weather. Here are some tips to work around the weather and stay gorgeous without purchasing waterproof versions of your favorite products.
Nanotechnology is a science that’s increasingly being applied to electronics, medicine, and—in a huge way—cosmetics.
Many of the biggest international brands are now making products using microscopic nanoparticles, and some even proudly boast about their use of nanotechnology on labels. But, like many ingredients used in personal care products, these tiny particles come with tiny amounts of research related to whether or not they are safe in terms of long-term health effects.
If you’ve designed your skin care regimen to combat oily skin, the idea of using a face oil might seem counterintuitive. You’re trying to get rid of oil, right? So why would you willingly apply it to your face?
Across the pond, the European Union has spent the past two decades restricting or banning approximately 1,400 harmful chemicals and ingredients from personal care products. In Canada, the number of restricted ingredients is a little less than half that, at around 600.
The United States? 30.
