Made in the USA, this line of clinical skincare is used to correct signs of aging, protect healthy skin and prevent future damage. SkinCeuticals products are backed by science from the first stages of their development through the packaging of the final formulations.
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including, but not limited to asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise, and 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.
Only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data.
What's worse is the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful (lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates) in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids every single day, day after day.
The United States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients, the US has only banned 11 to date.
At Beautycounter, we've banned more than 1,500 ingredients setting a new health and safety standard - all while ensuring our products perform, and that they're as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick or oil in the market.
It's not easy work, but it's well worth it.
This is about progress—not perfection. Because every little bit counts.
