Beautycounter founder Gregg Renfrew is countering the skin care and beauty industry, one step at a time, with the help of independent consultants all over the U.S. and Canada. Gregg’s mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone, and she is doing just that…plus EVEN MORE.
Did you know that around 85 percent of breast cancers are not linked to family history? That means, in many cases, there are steps that can be taken to reduce risk.
October is Breast Cancer Prevention Month. Gregg is doing all that she can to support the cause, and you can join the efforts as well. Keep reading to figure out how.
As part of Breast Cancer Prevention Month, we’ve teamed up with two incredible organizations, @bcppartners and @keepabreast. As our Consultants hold socials this month to talk about safer beauty, they will also be sharing important info on prevention. Want to know more? Read our recent blog post (link in bio) and check out our partners at bcpp.org and keep-a-breast.org.
Three simple ways to help prevent breast cancer:
1.Donate to breast cancer prevention organizations
BCPP( Breast Cancer Prevention Partners) and Keep A Breast have each created Beautycounter-specific fundraising pages for the month of October. Visit these links to donate, and feel free to share them with friends and family.
2. Stay informed and educate others
Beautycounter has worked with both of their non-profit partners to create prevention-focused graphics, which they will be sharing on their social feeds all month. ( @Beautycounter ) You’re welcome to share them, too! You never know—by spreading this useful information, you may help save a life.
3. Switch to safer beauty and cleaning products—and encourage your loved ones to do the same.
At Beautycounter, they screen all ingredients in their formulations to make sure they don’t have links to cancer, based on existing scientific literature.There are lots of other simple and affordable safer beauty hacks, such as using coconut oil as a hydrating mask, makeup remover, and dandruff solution, or swapping olive oil for your skin moisturizer. The same goes for cleaning products around the house. You can use baking soda to scrub your tub, fresh lemon to make your faucets shine or even a mixture of one part white vinegar and three parts water for a countertop disinfectant.
