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.
