Raise your hand if cancer has struck too close to home. I'm sure if you're reading this your hand is up. We live in an era when 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women are receiving cancer diagnoses. My mother in law recently passed of brain cancer, I watch friends fight cancer on Facebook, my family has a long history of thyroid cancer, my grandfather died of colon cancer, and my mom has been battling cancer for decades. This is an epidemic, and it must stop. Cancer prevention is near and dear to Beautycounter's heart. The mission of beautycounter is to get safe products into the hands of everyone. To eliminate known carcinogens from our personal care products. To offer products that we can use and sleep at night knowing they've been made with known safe ingredients. The company is petitioning Washington to make stricter laws so using known carcinogens in products is no longer legal or commonplace. Now, beautycounter is taking their mission a step farther. For the month of July beautycounter is matching all donations (up to 50,000$) to the organization stand up to cancer. I encourage you to donate, in the memory of someone you love fighting this battle, and let's help change this epidemic one person at a time.
