At Beautycounter, our mission is to get safe beauty and skin care products into the hands of everyone.
In 2013 I was diagnosed with Melanoma. Never one to spend to much time in the sun, I began to question other factors that may have contributed to me developing cancer. My first thought was diet and exercise but it wasn't until I became pregnant, a year later, that I connected the impact that day-to-day products have on our lives and health. If these products could harm my pregnancy what was it doing to me on a day-to-day basis? What I found was an industry that creates with very little restriction. The US has only banned 11 ingredients from use; the European Union has banned 1300+. We deserve better. At Beautycounter, we’re doing something about it by creating affordable skin and beauty products you can feel good about - on the inside and out! We have voluntarily eliminated over 1500 ingredients using the most restrictive selection process in the industry. Our ingredients are safe, effective, and beautiful. We promise: *to never use an ingredient known to be harmful; linked to carcinogens, endocrine blockers, or harmful to reproductive health. *be fully transparent with our ingredients *create products that are safe for the entire family, even while pregnant or nursing Contact Megan Cuda with any questions on products or how to become involved in the Beautycounter mission.
