What the *&^% is on your face? #beauty #health #wellness

One of my friends from college just recently took up a great cause. Not that I'm surprised. This amazing lady, that's Mick Teti-Beaudin to you ladies and gents, often champions heart-warming causes.

So I'd like to give a shout-out to her latest cause, Beautycounter with Mick. (Though how she has time for this endeavor in between rescuing all the animals and knitting adorable baby garments, I have no idea).

Beautycounter's mission? "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...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.


WE DESERVE BETTER, AND WE'RE DOING 
SOMETHING ABOUT IT."
Read their full mission statement here.

I spent a great deal perusing their site and can vouch that they have an extensive line of bath and body products, as well as cosmetics.

As that fru fru hippie chick who already reads the ingredients on the back of all her shampoos and makes her own face moisturizer, I can totally get behind this. And I know that many of friends are also super concerned about what they put on their bodies. So if this is something that you are into, please hit up my friend Mick. She's a fab lady who will take good care of you.

Here is the link to Mick's beautycounter again: BAM!


Also, be sure to give her a like on Facebook while you're at it!
