Beautycounter's Mission: To get safer products into the hands of everyone.
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry.
What’s worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day, and to make their own judgments about safety.
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE.
At Beautycounter, we’re committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law: We’ve banned the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through our "Never List”—all while ensuring our products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.
IT’S NOT EASY WORK, BUT IT’S WELL WORTH IT.
Making safer products starts with safer ingredients. Beautycounter’s five-step Ingredient Selection Process truly sets them apart.
Step 1: Ban Intentionally
The Never List: 1,500 questionable or harmful ingredients we do not use, no matter what (including nearly 1,400 cosmetic ingredients banned in the European Union).
Step 2: Screen Rigorously.
Using the best available data, we screen every potential ingredient, considering it both individually and within a mixture of chemicals, as it would be in a final product. After all, if a company removes one toxic chemical and replaces it with another, nothing has been done to actually protect our health.
Step 3: Learn Constantly.
We regularly review emerging data on ingredients and even commission our own studies. The absence of data does not mean that a chemical is safe.
Step 4: Source Responsibly:
- Choose the best available ingredient options.
- Work to source ingredients from non-GMO, sustainable sources, many of which are organic. Over 80% of our ingredients are natural or plant-derived.
- Ask for certificates of purity, and test for heavy metal contamination.
- Work to manufacture all products in the U.S.
- Do not test products or ingredients on animals.
Step 5: Share Transparently.
Every ingredient we use is shared on our product packaging, online, and in EWG’s Skin Deep database. We share the source of all ingredients.
