A major victory just took place in the crusade for safer cleaning products

Beautycounter’s passion for safer products doesn’t stop with personal care—we want to see more ingredient transparency in everything we use at home and at work. That’s why we’re thrilled that the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 (SB 258) was signed into California law on October 15, requiring manufacturers to disclose cleaning product ingredients for the first time ever.

An open letter from Beautycounter’s founder and CEO

RE: California must act to protect salon workers from harmful chemicals

Dear Members of the California State Legislature,

I write as the founder of Beautycounter, a company that is a leader in the safer skin care and cleaner cosmetics category.

Your hairstylist’s health may be in danger—here’s how you can help

If you want to know what’s in your at-home beauty products, you can look on their labels (and cross-reference with The Never List™!) to find out how safe their ingredients are—with the exception of those pesky “fragrances,” of course. But sadly, hairstylists, manicurists, and other beauty pros don’t have it so easy when they’re at work. That’s because product manufacturers aren’t required to disclose what’s in their salon formulas—harmful chemicals included—leaving many bottles without an ingredient list. Yes, really.

Don’t you and your glam squad deserve to know if your health is in danger? We certainly think so, which is why we’re fighting to change the law—and we need your help.

Putting Health, Safety and Quality First

We are voluntarily issuing a recall of one lot of our Volume & Shape Shampoo, after learning that it did not meet our strict standards expectations. While this is an isolated incident, and no other Beautycounter products are affected, we take any indication of potential quality or health issues very seriously.

5 BRILLIANT TIPS FOR USING FACE AND BODY OILS IN SUMMER

Oils might not be the first skin solution you reach for when temperatures rise, but they can also be good in warmer weather—they’re actually lighter than the majority of creams. A few tiny drops will absorb instantly and seamlessly, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, balancing out oil production, and soothing dehydration. The end result: Plump and radiant skin that feels nourished, healthy, and hydrated.

But all-over application isn’t the only way to use these glow-getting products. We asked our Chief Artistic Officer, Christy Coleman, for some face and body oil tips that you might not have considered. Read on for her genius advice!
