🎄❤️ Day 4: Banned Ingredients/The Never List THIRTY. When I first made the commitment to really switch over my personal care products, I just bellied up to the counter at a local natural grocery store and tried a bunch of stuff. I figured that was my best bet. I knew that there were safer products out there, but I also assumed there was stronger regulation and safety standards for all products on our shelves. I just didn’t know any better. And even though I was choosing better by stocking up on products at the local hippie market, I wasn't truly educated. Just because it’s in a Whole Foods doesn’t mean it’s safe or healthy. It’s kinda like the Cookie Butter at Trader Joe’s — that’s not a health food, my friends. So I was still using stuff that had a lot of questionable ingredients, to include parabens and phthalates and fragrance. Because the United States allows all of these ingredients to be in our products despite the fact that they are connected to many disturbing health issues. 1400 in the European Union. 600 in Canada. 30 in the US. Beautycounter chooses to exclude over 1500 ingredients from their products because they are possibly harmful and toxic to the body. (This is known as The Never List, and you can print out a version to keep in your wallet for quick reference.) That's 500 times more than this country requires. A 2 billion dollar industry is governed by 1.5 pages of legislation. Companies are not required to disclose the ingredients in their products. I think that is messed up, you guys. We deserve better.

Soothe your scalp with the Hair Smoothie. This conditioning treatment helps stimulate the scalp with herbs like parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and leaves your hair soft and smooth and not weighed down — all while treating the scalp. . PS- I also use this to shave my legs! I’ve used hair conditioner to shave for years, is that weird? I’m not sure but it works for me. 😉 . PPS- I will mention that this conditioner does have a very herbaceous scent from all the herbs and broccoli oil, it grows on you though. 🌱 🥦 🌿
Hey positive vibes tribe, I can’t wait for you to receive my email tomorrow 🙊🙊🙊, I share a really powerful exercise in living your best life beyond eczema. 💫✍️ Today has been so unplanned. I went on a walk to get some eco-therapy and an old man fell over in front of me. My boyfriend and I ran to help him up and walked him back to where he told us his home was, to find it wasn’t his home and some lovely German people lived there. Unfortunately this left him distressed and angry, he was convinced it was his home and his wife was in bed. Honestly heartbreaking. Hours later his wife found him and took him home 💫🙏💖. Moral, be kind, be patience, be caring. There are other people fighting big battles that may need your support. If I had stayed in bed upset about my scratches, then I wouldn’t have been there to help this wonderful soul. So, no matter how your eczema is making you feel, get up, get out and know you are NEEDED in this world. Lots of love and positive vibes, Camille x ☕️
Be patient everything is coming together. This is something that I am developing because sometimes I just want things to happen quickly. I’m realizing that it’s all a process and it takes time. Have a wonderful Saturday.
🎄❤️ Day 3 — Transparency What does transparency mean? To me, it means that a company is sharing 100% of their ingredients, process, and the source of their raw materials. Companies often hide ingredients behind seemingly pleasant sounding words (like fragrance), so I'm a skeptic about anything less than complete transparency. If I'm buying a product, putting it in or on my body, I have a right to know what's in it. It's a major RED FLAG when I can't track down ingredients in products. In foods you often see words like ”Spices” and “Natural Flavorings”. In products you put on your skin, you often see words like “Parfum”, and “Fragrance”. Due to what is known as "Trade Secret" legislation, those ingredients could be a lot of really gnarly stuff. Legally, we just don’t always know what toxic chemicals are hiding behind vague labels. They aren’t required to disclose any ingredients. If a company doesn't want to comply, I move on and find somewhere else to spend my money. Luckily, the tides are changing and more companies are making transparency a top priority. But we need ALL companies to be doing this, which is another reason I have such admiration for Beautycounter. We are fighting to get legislation so all companies are held to higher standards of safety. Beautycounter came about after founder, Gregg Renfrew learned that the personal care products industry is extremely under-regulated, and that companies aren’t required to tell consumers what is in the products they sell. She wanted to offer better, safer products while bringing transparency back to beauty. Cleaner, better beauty can only begin when you know what’s in your products. All of the ingredients Beautycounter uses when formulating products, including all known components of fragrances that traditionally fall under the words “fragrance” or “parfum” are fully disclosed on the website. There is an Ingredients Glossary where they list the sources of BC

“She was the kind of elegance That would never tarnish. A mixture of lace and mesh, Like a classic heirloom that begged to be worn. . . She was sharp intellect and quick wit.The type of woman that spoke her mind, Even if it shook. (Or even if no one was listening.) . . She was beautiful. But not someone you’d see in magazines, Her hips were too wide, her hair a mess of wispy tendrils, (Rather, she was actually very ordinary.) . . My, was she stubborn! She’d drive you mad! (Sometimes, you’d probably call her crazy.) . . But mostly, her laughter was a joyful moment. Like a warm towel fresh from the dryer, Or finding a twenty-dollar bill in your winter coat. . . And that was the true revelation. That magic does exist, It ran through her like a wild, fiery current.” - M.J. Abraham . . . . . . .

🎄❤️🎄Day 2 — History of the Personal Care Product Legislation Did you know the last piece of major legislation in regards to the Personal Care industry was in 1938? And did you know it was instigated because a woman went blind from a mascara product? Let's have a little history lesson.... ⚫️1906: We see the start of the FDA as part of the Pure Food and Drug Act. This act was passed because of the outrage over the conditions of Chicago Stockyards detailed in Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and about 100 billsaimed to reign in serious abuses in the consumer product market. ⚫️1933: A woman by the name of Mrs. Brown bought a product called Lash Lure. Over the course of a few months, her corneas started to deteriorate and she eventually went blind. ⚫️1937: Elixir Sulfamide came to market. Sulfamide was a commonly used pill that treated minor ailments. But in an effort to make it drinkable (taste good), the manufacturer added Diethylene Glycol. Also known as ANTI-FREEZE. The product was tested for shelf life, ease of shipping, and flavor. But it was NEVER TESTED FOR TOXICITY. Within 1 month, over 100 people died, most of them children. ⚫️1938: President Roosevelt is forced to pass the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act of 1938. And for a bit, there were some great protective laws on the books. But then…World War II occurred and with it, so did the chemical revolution. Since that time, over 85,000 chemicals have been introduced into commerce but less than 10% of these have been tested for safety on humans. Ingredients like mercury, coal tar, formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, allergens, and pollutants! We know just by looking at this list that these ingredients ARE NOT SAFE. But they are said to be “safe enough.” WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!? Safe enough for who? Me? My children?? Are you surprised by any of this? I think what upsets me the most is the lack of awareness. People assume our government is taking precautions

Without a doubt the MOST important step in my skin care routine is ALWAYS using sun screen before I leave the house. Rain or shine its so important to protect your skin from the damaging suns rays, especially if you are using other skin care products to enhance your skins quality. Why, well its simple, when we ae revitalizing our skin we should be very careful to protect the fresh new skin we are revealing, and protecting it from the suns rays is critical!. I must admit that in the past it took a lot of effort for me to want to use sun screen, finding the right consistency without making me break out was a huge challenge, but I have finally found an excellent solution! I am so impressed with EVER DAYLIGHT Radiance Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF-32 by @LisaPretto. Its the perfect consistency and applies just like a moisturizer should, but has the added benefits of sun screen. I use it under my makeup or even alone on those days where I want to go out with a fresh face and my skin has never looked better. I am so excited to have found a sun screen that does not make me feel greasy or break out and feels wonderful on my skin!
Lioness Cat Eyes #motd using the new @honest_beauty Eyeshadow Palette! Guys!! I'm so impressed with this! It has 10 super pigmented shadows (a mixture of both mattes, shimmers, AND satins!) The #1 thing I always complain about with palettes is not having a black eyeshadow! But I'm happy to say that you can create some pretty intense dark smokey eyes with this one because it has a jetttt black matte that is absolute perfection. Applied matte brown through the crease, packed a gold shadow onto the lid, lined my eyes and smoked out the outer corners with black :D #bold#makeup#honestbeauty#honestambassador#cleanbeautythatworks#thatshonest
Day 1 — Welcome to 12 Days of Safer Beauty Education! ❤️🎄❤️ ❤️ As a Beautycounter consultant, I hear about safer beauty education every day … and I forget that the majority of the people haven’t been educated about this topic. In fact, the latest statistic I heard is that only 20% of US consumers are aware that there are potentially harmful ingredients in products. And even then, most people don’t understand what that really means. So over the next 12 days, I will be sharing some topics of safer beauty education that will equip you with usable knowledge so you can be a better advocate for yourself and your loved ones. Because the truth is it is up to us. The US beauty industry is valued at 66 billion dollars, and it is shockingly unregulated. And the FDA has the equivalent of just 6 full-time inspectors to monitor 3 million shipments of cosmetics coming in each year. So it’s time for us to be the inspectors. In preparation for the next 11 days, I’m going to give you a little bit of homework: 1) If you haven’t yet, download the EWG app on your phone so you can investigate products and search ingredients. 2) Count up the number of personal care products you use everyday. And don’t forget toothpaste and soap! The average woman uses 12 products which contain 168 chemicals. 3) Lastly, I want you to admit something to yourself. What’s that one thing you use that you know in your heart of hearts that isn’t goof for you? You don’t have to write it down or say it out loud … just identify it. I know what mine is :)
Do one ☝️ lovely 😊 thing for yourself every day. It may be giving yourself a facial or giving yourself permission to say “no” to something you don’t want to do. It could be just taking a soak in the bath 🛀🏾. Give yourself permission for indulgence. What are you going to do for yourself today? I’m going to the gym. No excuses for me.
I have been using the resurfacing peel 2 to 3 nights a week and I am loving it! 🌟 Why is it safer than other peels? Our Overnight Resurfacing Peel is formulated without synthetic fragrances, PEGs, and formaldehyde-based preservatives commonly found in peels. Our peel uses a unique combination of both resurfacing acids and soothing acids that hydrate, replenish, and protect skin. This precise combination of acids optimizes performance while maintaining a pH level that doesn’t cause irritation. So if you’re ready to say goodbye to brown spots, fine lines and dull skin and ready to say hello to youthful, glowing skin the peel is a great choice!! 🤩 You can shop directly from the link in my bio.
