It didn’t take long for me to realize that I had to become involved with Beautycounter. Of course, I was nervous. I had never done anything like this and from what I had heard, most of these kinds of ‘things’ were scams, but I just couldn’t help but think that Beautycounter wasn’t like everyone else.
I wasn’t a ‘salesperson’, in fact, I’m still not. I hate sales, actually, but I knew I loved educating. I loved meeting new people and I loved getting the conversation started.
When I was first introduced to Beautycounter I didn’t really appreciate it the way I should have. Not once did it ever occur to me that the products sold in stores may not be safe for me. But after learning more about this unregulated industry I realized there was actually nothing like Beautycounter on the market.
Beautycounter had set a new standard by banning over 1,500 harmful toxins and chemicals from their products. They are a company completely committed to truth and transparency.
Their business wasn’t just focused on sales. The focus was education. The drive was the mission to get safe products into the hands of everyone. And that was something I knew I had to support any way I could.
As a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, I knew I had to become a part of the movement to get safe products into the hands of everyone. I shared Gregg’s vision where one day my kids (yours too!) would be able to shop wherever and have full disclosure on what’s in their personal care products and cosmetics. People shouldn’t have to choose between health and beauty. And the I learned the truth and how no one is standing up for us, I knew I had to.
As a consumer, I was tired of being lied to. Tricked. Deceived. Why was I being exposed to Cancer causing toxins without ever knowing? How could these ingredients be allowed in the products I put on myself and my children every single day? Why should my shampoo cause infertility? How could my makeup contain the more lead than gasoline? How was it possible that before I took my first sip of coffee for the day I had already exposed myself to hundreds of toxic chemicals, many that had no safety data whatsoever? The list of questions goes on and on.
And there is no acceptable answer.
The bottom line is we deserve better and at Beautycounter we’re doing something about it.
I became a part of this movement because I knew I had to be a voice. I knew I had to tell people the truth. And I had to give people a chance to stand up for themselves.
I also wanted a ‘job’ where I knew I was making a difference in the lives of others. Ending each day knowing that I did something more. That I had the opportunity to give back, not just to my family, but to my community, to my friends, to those I loved, and even to those I had never met.
But really, more than all of that, I became a part of this movement because I wanted to be an example for my kids. I wanted to show them that you can make a difference no matter how big or how small. And if you’re passionate about something to go for it. Take chances on yourself and stand up for what matters. And remember to stand up even if you’re the only one standing.
Because when you know better you do better and that can change everything.
