On a really good day, your kids’ bathroom looks like a disheveled Target shelf. Body wash, bubble bath, toys– things everywhere. But here’s a complicated question: Do you know what’s in all of that stuff? We take so much care about what goes IN their bodies; but what about what goes ON them? This is where Beautycounter comes in.

The US has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938 (!). The European Union has banned more than 1,400 ingredients, while the U.S. has only banned 30 to date. We deserve better. Beautycounter has banned more than 1,500 ingredients, setting a new health and safety standard.  You can view their never-list here.  PS. Fragrance should be your newest enemy. Go check your labels!

One of the things we really love about Beautycounter is that they are an educ

ation-first company. Beautycounter is on a mission to get safe products into the hands of everyone. They’re even involved on the legislative side, lobbying for us, and asking Congress for better health-protective laws regulating the outdated beauty industry. Beautycounter is proud to be a B-Corp (along with companies like Toms and Patagonia), which means they’ve been certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Why does this matter? Our skin is our largest organ, so what we put on our bodies (AND OUR KIDS’ BODIES!) is worth paying attention to. Just think about everything you put on your skin—cleansers, toners, moisturizers, oils, sunscreen, makeup, body wash, scrubs, shampoo…..the list goes on and on. As Beautycounter says: This is about progress—not perfection. Because every little bit counts.

That being said his week we are super excited to team up with them and Ryann Detamore (a fellow Houston mom of 3 under 4) to bring you an amazing giveaway! One lucky winner will receive the entire Kids Collection— Body Wash, Shampoo, and Conditioner! These are high performing, great smelling, and SAFE that kids all the way from toddlers to teenagers can get behind. It suds up extremely well and leaves their hair clean and fresh but not strongly. The conditioner is seriously a game changer for tangly girls hair or curly boys hair too! A little goes a long way and the bottles are great for kids to bathe themselves!

Plus, you can get a FREE GIFT with purchase: for every $150+ order placed today through August 11, you’ll have the choice of one FREE product below. (First come first serve; e-mail Ryann after placing your order and let her know which product you’d like).
