Years ago, I began to realize the powerful connection between what I put IN my body and my health.
I began incorporating more organic food, hormone-free, free-range and grass fed meats, reading labels and questioning ingredients like artificial sweeteners and “diet” or “low fat” foods that I had grown up eating every day.
Despite YEARS of efforts toward healing through food, yoga and stress management, I never thought about the fact that products I was slathering on my body every day were potentially toxic, unsafe and aggravating my autoimmune condition.
I had to ask myself:
What is the point in eating organic, ditching the plastic and filtering my water if I’m just slathering on harmful toxins every day?
What we eat is important, no doubt. But it’s easy to overlook the safety of what goes on our skin.
Our skin is our largest organ and what we put on it can be in our bloodstream in as little as 26 seconds.
It started with reading product labels looking for endocrine disruptors like parabens. Quickly, I learned that potentially harmful ingredients like parabens were in pretty much every beauty and hair product I owned. I found Parabens are even in products like liquid children’s cold medicine and tortillas. Yes, tortillas.
When our daughter was born, I took it to the next level and my list of ingredients to avoid kept getting longer. It’s one thing to put harmful chemicals knowingly on ourselves, but it’s another to put it on this precious and innocent life you brought into the world, right?
There is a widespread assumption in the U.S. that if a product is on the shelf, it has been evaluated and found to be free and clear of ingredients that might be harmful.
Sadly, this is far from true.
Beautycounter does the homework for you.
They ban over 1500 chemicals from being used in any Beautycounter product. They even have a handy Neverlist of ingredients you will never see in any of their products. Ever.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
Now I know— and you do too—that what we put ON our body is important.
