    Our Ingredient Selection Process


    Our Ingredient Selection Process


    Ban Intentionally

    The Never List™ is made up of approximately 1,500 harmful or questionable ingredients we prohibit from our product formulations, including the nearly 1,400 ingredients banned in the European Union.

    Screen Rigourously

    Using the best available sources, we screen every potential ingredient for information on specific hazards like cancer, developmental toxicity, hormone disruption, and infertility.

    Learn Constantly

    There are major data gaps on most cosmetics ingredients, so we review emerging data regularly and even commission our own studies.

    Source Responsibly

    We choose the best organic, natural, sustainable, and synthetic ingredients that meet our standards. Over 80% of the ingredients in our products are natural or plant-derived.

    Share Transparently

  • Health and Safety Achievements

    Beautycounter received the highest score in the Chemical Footprint Project's inaugural survey in 2016 and 2017. We are proud to be among 24 pioneering businesses both small (millions in annual revenue) and large (tens of billions in annual revenue) to have their chemical management practices closely examined.
    Similar to carbon footprinting, the project applies clear and consistent metrics for benchmarking companies. Scores are based on a company's efforts to reduce and replace the use of harmful chemicals with safer alternatives, and to disclose this work. Our top score demonstrates to companies worldwide that it's possible to find safer ingredients to grow a business. It brings us a step closer to moving the market in a better direction.
