One of the reasons I joined Beautycounter was because I fell in love with the movement. The company's mission is to get safe products in the hands of everyone and part of that mission is effecting change in the industry by pushing to reform the 77 year old federal law regulating the industry. The United States only bans 11 ingredients whereas the European Union bans close to 1400. So ingredients that have been linked to health problems are allowed in our products. The products you put on yourself and your family every day, day after day. Beautycounter has proven that you can have high-performing, luxurious products made without harmful ingredients. So we hope others will follow suit.
It was 77 years ago today (that's 1938 y'all!) that President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law our weak cosmetics regulations. So it’s only fitting that today Beautycounter has decided to announce our position on the newly introduced cosmetics reform bill in the U.S. Senate.

What if everyone sent two emails today to their U.S. senators? Things can and will change—but only with your help. I sent my two emails to the two Georgia senators - won't you join me?
