Years ago on a mission to reclaim my health, after suffering for years with the ups and downs that come from living with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid, I made a major change to my diet. The positive results I experienced from my new healthier diet created a bit of a domino effect for me, and I then moved away from using toxic chemical-laden household cleaners and brought safe but effective organic cleaners in to my home. I also began incorporating Young Living essential oils as an everyday part of life. The last domino to fall on my healthy living path was switching to safer beauty products.
As a self proclaimed cosmetics junkie, I used to peruse the aisles of Sephora and Ulta with wild abandon. Blissfully unaware, I assumed all the products were safe to use; because well, this is America where we regulate everything. Don’t we? Unfortunately for us American consumers, the billion-dollar beauty industry is one of the least regulated. What does this mean? It means companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about safety. With more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today, it means we as consumers carry the burden of regulating our own safety when it comes to the products we use.
For this reason I joined the Beautycounter movement and mission: “To get safe products into the hands of everyone!” I started the Safer Beauty Tribe, and once a month I distribute a free, informative e-newsletter that helps tribe members learn about what ingredients to avoid and how to incorporate natural, effective solutions. Overall, the Safer Beauty Tribe newsletter aims to help tribe members make healthier, more informed personal care product choices for themselves and their families. Because you can only do better when you KNOW better!
