Unfortunately every single one of us has been touched by cancer. It became real for me when my best friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma at 38 years old. Thankfully, she is 5+ years cancer free but the increasing number of cancer cases has to end. Beautycounter's mission extends far beyond our product line. For the month of July, Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Beautycounter have come together to honor all who have been touched by cancer. We deliver on our mission in three important ways: through our beautiful products, education, and by advocating for more laws protecting health. This campaign is an example of our mission in action. We believe that preventing exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in the products we use every day is simply the right thing to do. At Beautycounter, we’ve banned more than 1,500 ingredients, setting a new health and safety standard—intentionally screening each ingredient used for safety. Help us prevent cancer before it starts. Together we can make a difference to end this horrible disease.
