Hey friends! So, full disclosure, I work with a marvelous company called Beautycounter and I want you to join me in changing the world! Here’s why…and how!
My son was born 2 months early via emergency c-section after a my Dr. couldn’t find a heartbeat during a routine check. We had quite an experience, to put it mildly, and learned ALOT! First, we learned that prematurity is on the rise and they don’t know why! Later I learned that ingredients in products are being linked to infertility and hormone disruption, along with a other similarly upsetting things. I don’t know for sure….but I colored my hair, did my nails, and wore all the makeup for many years. Does that sound crazy that products could do something like that? Well, its not!
Studies, many by researchers at Tufts University, are linking product ingredients to things like cancer, organ toxicity and developmental toxicity.
During my pregnancies, and while nursing, I had stopped using all of my “good” makeup, and was pretty much using coconut oil for everything else. I was aware that there were bad ingredients out there, and that they could cross the placenta, and pass into breast milk. Then I found Beautycounter.
Not only do I LOVE the products I use, but I am helping change the industry! We focus on educating women(and men) about harmful ingredients and safer alternatives(Bc or otherwise)! If harmful ingredients aren’t being purchased, they won’t be produced! We vote with our dollars, my friends, and consumers have power! I want my kids to live in a world where they don’t have to check the labels for harmful ingredients!
Did you know that there are over 80,000 chemicals on the market today? Many have no safety data. We have over 1500 chemicals that we will never use in our products. We’re also a certified B Corporation, which means we meet high standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency! A company started by a mom on a mission, and we were the number 1 googled beauty company in 2018! Whaaat?!!!
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for safety! As an example of how Beautycounter meets industry standards of performance without harmful side effects, we recently launched a new anti-aging skin care line called CounterTime! Reti-natural, a combo of Bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine Rose(two plants) is performing as well as or better than Retinol in clinical studies! I can say, without any reservations, the line is AMAZING!
I would be using Beautycounter products anyway, but the business I have built is offering me so much more than I ever imagined. I am able to work from home and contribute to my family’s finances in a significant way while making a social impact! And I have also found the most amazing friends. We go to leadership events and combine business and mom support in a very unique and special way!
If you would like to learn more about working with me click here! You can also send me an email using our contact form, or connect via Instagram @theyounghomestead! Maybe you are passionate about health and environmental protection, or $500 extra a month would be huge for you. Maybe you just want to be a part of our amazing community.
If the biz isn’t for you, you can also join our Band of Beauty and switch out some of those products with unpronounceable, and frankly, potentially dangerous ingredients to something safer! Remember, we vote with our dollars.
Tip: if you are going to change one thing…lotion! Or anything else that covers the most surface area of your skin! Also, please stop using anything with “fragrance” on the label. Our skin is our body’s largest organ, and ingredients we apply go directly into the bloodstream! Click here for the Band of Beauty details!
If you have any questions at all, reach out! I’m happy to help!
