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.
These grey skies are giving us a serious case of spring fever. What better way to treat it than with desert-inspired hues for eyes, cheeks, and lips? Warm up your look with our newly-released Limited Edition Desert Sunrise Palette, including two never-before-seen eyeshadows. We’re absolutely swooning over how this collection of shadows and blushes brings desert colors to life. Plus, we’re introducing two totally new Lip Glosses, Coralbell and Beeblossom, to add bright contrast and complete the spring vibe.
As we look ahead to a new year and all the possibilities it holds, we find ourselves also looking back on the things we’re most proud of. As a company with game-changing ideas, Beautycounter strives to make positive change that goes beyond product by advocating for higher standards within the beauty industry, supporting organizations aligned with our values, and empowering women and girls in every aspect of our business and mission.
At Beautycounter, we use a comprehensive Ingredient Selection Process to develop our formulas that is comprised of five steps: we ban intentionally, screen rigorously, learn constantly, source responsibly, and share transparently. Despite our best efforts, we realize that there are still many potential ingredients for use in beauty products that simply do not have enough safety data.
The term “heavy metal” may not mean much to you (unless it’s referring to the musical genre, of course), but you likely know plenty about lead.
Lead is the headliner of the heavy metals category, due to its devastating and often irreversible effects on brain development and behavior in children, and its serious health risks in exposed adults, such as neurological effects, high blood pressure, thyroid dysfunction, and reproductive toxicity.
Recently, we asked Consultants everywhere to share stories of why they felt compelled to #TakeTheJob at Beautycounter. This ongoing series will feature new stories written by women leading the movement for better beauty.
Helping make the world safer for women and girls is in Beautycounter’s DNA. We aim to be bold in upholding our core values by defending women’s and girls’ right to live free from harm, no matter what form it takes. We believe that all women and girls should be able to live their lives fully and confidently without fear. That’s why we’re proud to have supported The Girl Effect with a $100,000 donation inspired by our 100 Lashes campaign earlier this year.
“I’m the ultimate problem-solver and painfully persistent and dedicated,” says Rachel Blumenthal, mother of two, and founder and CEO of Rockets of Awesome, an up-and-coming children’s clothing company. “The biggest challenge was knowing that if I didn’t make it happen every day, nobody else would.”
Boarding a plane soon? You’ve probably noticed that flying leaves your skin more dry than usual and can cause breakouts. That’s because recirculated air in plane cabins creates an environment that pulls moisture out wherever it can, including your skin. So whether you’re planning a getaway to hit the slopes, jet-setting internationally, or flying a few states over to spend the holidays with family, your skin is going to feel it.
