How We Made the Impossible Mascara

20160502-Mascara

Since Beautycounter launched in 2013, developing a safer mascara has been on our to-do list, and we’ve been determined to get it right. That’s why our brand-new Lengthening Mascara took more than three years to make. Three years of rejecting harmful ingredients often found in mainstream mascaras. Three years of researching better options that wouldn’t sacrifice performance—a common thread in other “clean” mascaras. And three years of refining the formula until it delivered the results we wanted: dramatically long, defined lashes. In large part thanks to our unparalleled Ingredient Selection Process, here’s how we achieved the impossible.

20160307-WishIHadKnown-656x402

While many of you know me as a CEO and entrepreneur, my most important job is being a mom. During preparations for our baby line launch, I asked the Beautycounter team to share stories of their early days as parents. Some of these stories made us laugh, and others reminded me of what I wish I’d known then. I hope some of these tips help to make the early days a bit better and safer, for you and your baby.

Beautycounter Is Three! Help Us Celebrate Today

20160304-AnniversaryPost-Image01_656x351-1

Three years ago, Beautycounter’s mission to get safe products into the hands of everyone was born. From the start, we wanted to make safer skin care and cosmetics that performed better than the products you had come to trust. As if that wasn’t a big enough goal, we’ve also made it our mission to push for reform in the outdated beauty industry. In our third year, we’ve made some serious strides—including our team’s visit to Washington, D.C., last fall, where we hosted a congressional briefing and met with Senate offices to tell our Beautycounter story and the need for change.

We may be celebrating our third birthday, but instead of balloons, we’d love better beauty laws. In lieu of cake, we request change. And rather than presents, we want all products made without potentially harmful ingredients. We’d love for you to celebrate our anniversary by joining us in asking Congress to prioritize safe beauty.
