AA 084: Switching to Safer Beauty & Beautycounter with Nicole Christensen

November 27, 2017

GIVEAWAY this week! THREE WINNERS will receive Simply Organic’s three best-selling spices – chili powder, garlic powder and cinnamon! To enter, head to our Instagram (@actuallyadultish), follow us and @simplyorganic, and comment on our latest photo tagging a friend! The giveaway will end December 1st!

This week I’m joined by Nicole Christensen, a Senior Director at Beautycounter and my personal Beautycounter mentor. In this episode, we chat about how Nicole found Beautycounter and why she became a Consultant. She shares her journey of transitioning to a healthier lifestyle and how she learned about the importance of using nontoxic personal care items. We talk about why Beautycounter is so passionate about making a change in the beauty industry, the truth about regulation when it comes to personal care products, why “fragrance” isn’t a great thing to have on an ingredients list, and what labels to look out for. We talk about addressing the toxins in your life besides food and how that affects your overall health, and why companies don’t disclose their full ingredients lists. We also talk about the way in which toxic personal care items affect our hormones, and how these toxins are related to infertility and cancer rates. We cover how we never want to sacrifice performance for safety and how Beautycounter’s strict ingredient screening process works. We also talk about why Beautycounter is direct retail, what being a Consultant is really like, and how much we love the Beautycounter community.

To chat with Nicole, you can find her on Instagram @nicolemariechristensen or email her at nicolechristensen@outlook.com
