It’s no secret I am a health nut. I take every opportunity I can to optimize the health of myself and those around me. Exercise? Check! Mind/Body/Soul? Check! Healthy food? Double Check! I’ve even been successful in using healthy household cleaners since my daughter Antonia was born. Finding new laundry soap, dish washing detergent, dish soap, and stain removers took some time and this site helped a TON! But it wasn’t enough to simply find “healthy” products, I had to make sure they worked GREAT (if you know me, you know I don’t settle for mediocre!).
Now, the best for last! Really…the most daunting for last. How the heck will I find healthy skincare products THAT ACTUALLY WORK?! Sure, lathering coconut oil on your face and hair is one option, but it isn’t exactly an enjoyable experience, nor can you walk out of the house with it slathered on your skin. Naturally, I was skeptical when I learned about Beautycounter. A number of other dietitians and healthcare providers in my holistic network raved about the company, but I decided to do my own research. I was relieved to see the products received such healthy grades on the Environmental Working Group’s database. Was there a catch? After sampling the products for myself, I fell more deeply in love–it felt as though I had mini spa treatments in my home! Lastly, I was pleasantly surprised when I placed my first order. The prices were more than fair, but not only that, you need such little product they really will last a few months. SOLD! And the rest is history. I have incorporated Beautycounter products into my practice.
I am proud to stand behind such an influential company. Beautycounter advocates for safe ingredients in all skincare products and cosmetics–why settle for less?
