Beautycounter is by far my top choice for highly effective, safe products. They place human health and safety as their top priority when formulating products.
As a scientist, I am in awe of their thoroughness and commitment to using green chemistry to make safe and effective products. They screen every single ingredient using 17 research databases evaluating 23 different endpoints for human end environmental health.
These endpoints range from human reproductive toxicity and hormone disruption, to environmental consequences aquatic toxicity and bioaccumulation. Most companies (clean beauty or conventional) are likely only screening for things like allergic reactions, skin irritation, or death.
All packaging materials are also screened for those same endpoints.
And everything is screened for the most vulnerable populations (the very young, the very old, pregnant and breastfeeding women) because once products are safe for those people, we know they’re safe for the general population.
Fact: the European Union has a list of about 1400 ingredients that they ban or restrict the use of in cosmetics and personal care products due to known or suspected danger to human health; the United states only has a list of 30. Beautycounter took Europe’s list and expanded it to make it more comprehensive and safer.
I’ve wasted a lot of money over the years trying “natural” brands that do not perform like conventional products and that left me feeling unkempt and not well groomed. The wonderful thing about Beautycounter is that they do not release a product until it is perfected to perform as well or BETTER than high-end conventional (toxic) options.
Plus Beautycounter offers a 60 day return period, so you can try the products for more than a month to make sure you absolutely love them and if you don’t you can return them using the pre-paid shipping label that comes in your box.
