A little about Beauty counter:
Our Mission: To get safer products into the hands of everyone.
One by one, we are leading a movement to a future where all beauty is clean beauty. We are powered by people, and our collective mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. Formulate, advocate, & educate—that’s our motto for creating products that truly perform while holding ourselves to unparalleled standards of safety. Why? It’s really this simple: beauty should be good for you.
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) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids' bodies every single day, day after day.
In the increasingly crowded safer beauty marketplace, it’s often hard to distinguish what is jargon and what is actually effective and safer for your health. At Beautycounter, we believe in radical transparency and products that are safer by design. To that end, we go well beyond what even the most stringent international safety regulations require, because existing laws just aren’t strong enough.
Our commitment to safety starts with formulation and we begin by consulting The Never List™ which is composed of over 1,500 ingredients we choose never to formulate with. In comparison, the U.S. government restricts only 30 ingredients while Canada restricts more than 600 and the E.U. more than 1,400 ingredients. We’re proud of our commitment to choose only ingredients that undergo strenuous review.
Yet, even with our rigorous screening process, we receive questions from clients that ask what sets Beautycounter apart from our Canadian and European counterparts. The answer is simple – Beautycounter goes above and beyond what is allowed overseas by banning intentionally, screening rigorously, learning constantly, sourcing responsibly and sharing transparently.
To show how we go above and beyond what’s required in places like the E.U., consider our cleansers. Of the three main types of surfactants or cleansing agents, Beautycounter prohibits both sulfates and ethoxylated surfactants which Europe, Canada and the U.S. all allow. Instead, we choose sugar derived surfactants for our products.
Among commonly used active ingredients, Beautycounter does not use ingredients like retinoids or hydroquinone which are allowed or partially restricted in Europe. And in the area of preservatives, we prohibit all parabens and formaldehyde releasers while in contrast, some parabens are allowed in the European markets, including methy and ethyl parabens as well as propyl and butyl parabens. Moreover, while Europe has banned formaldehyde, many formaldehyde releasers such as diazolidinyl urea, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate and bronopol are still allowed.
Simply put, Beautycounter is far more restrictive of personal care ingredients than even Europe. In fact, our safety blueprint takes into account 23 safety endpoints including everything from irritation to carcinogenicity to reproductive harms and endocrine activity.
We recognize that our mission towards better beauty is a goal and not a destination. Science will continue to evolve and innovation in ingredients and the manufacturing process will transform our business. The beauty industry will not look the same in ten years. But we can promise that one thing will never change. Beautycounter will work everyday to deliver both performance and safety because we believe that beauty shouldn’t only make you look good but be good for everyone.
