Almost 5 years ago, I saw a post from a friend on Facebook about safer shampoo. I messaged her "What are you talking about?" I did not know there is no regulation over the products we put on our hair and skin every single day. I assumed, like most people, that the FDA governed the industry, regulated the industry and kept us safe. (Watch this testimony at a hearing before a Congressional subcommittee in December 2019. EYE opening! https://energycommerce.house.gov/committee-activity/hearings/hearing-on-building-consumer-confidence-by-empowering-fda-to-improve)
The friend who had made the post about safer shampoo introduced me to Beautycounter products. I loved how they performed and I loved the mission of the company - to get safer products into the hands of everyone - using education, advocacy work and a high performing safer product line.
I was not looking for a new job. I was not looking for a side gig. I was not wanting to sell anything. I did not wear makeup except mascara every day.
But the mission grabbed me and I was so angry about the products I had been putting on my girls their whole lives, I checked out Beautycounter. I made Brian, my husband with his 25+ years of sales and MBA, check out the company to make sure it was legitimate.
Here I am now loving the community, income opportunity, and products. Come on this journey with me. Progress, not perfection.
