Beautycounter is a direct retail brand that sets the standard for clean beauty. Operating in the United States and Canada, Beautycounter advocates for safer skincare and cosmetic products by working directly with government officials and through a community of independent Consultants.
OUR CONSULTANT COMMUNITY
Beautycounter Consultants share the company’s industry-changing message and products with those close to them. Over the course of 2017, Beautycounter had a total of 33,408 Registered Consultants* and 29,000 Active Consultants** in the United States who received a Commission payment in at least one month of the year.
Consultants join Beautycounter to share our mission of getting safer products into the hands of everyone. In doing so, Consultants are eligible to earn up to 35% combined Retail and Personal Sales Bonus Commissions for selling products. In addition, they may enroll other Consultants to develop their own teams. Consultants are then eligible to earn Override Commissions on the sales of their teams. Consultants may also earn special bonuses, such as those that reward performance in the first months after becoming a Consultant, achieving the Director title, or mentoring a large and successful team.
Consultants join Beautycounter by purchasing a $98.00 Enrollment Kit that includes sales materials, products, and a personal website. Many Consultants choose to buy an optional Starter Set, which includes products to use, demonstrate, and sample, in addition to the Enrollment Kit.
COMMISSIONS IN 2017
To empower and reward our Consultant community for its efforts, Beautycounter paid over $80 million USD in Commissions in the United States and Canada in 2017.
The total amount of Commissions that a Consultant earns depends on many factors, including the amount of time he or she dedicates to Beautycounter.
Consultants determine when and how much they wish to work. Many of our Consultants choose to spend a few hours a week with Beautycounter, while others work on their businesses full-time. As a result, the amount of Commissions earned can vary significantly from Consultant to Consultant. In general, those who dedicate the most time and effort to Beautycounter have the potential to earn the most income.

These figures show compensation paid by Beautycounter, and they do not reflect other expenses incurred by Consultants while operating their businesses. Beautycounter and/or any of our independent Consultants do not guarantee any level of income. Each Consultant’s success in earning Commissions will depend on his or her efforts, abilities, and circumstances. Financial success with Beautycounter requires dedication to one’s Consultant business and diligent effort. In addition, success requires demonstrated skill in selling, recruiting, and leading a team of other Consultants. Those considering becoming Consultants should carefully consider their unique circumstances to set any expectation of Commissions that may be earned, rather than relying upon testimonials of others or hypothetical examples.
