As a leader in the development of more secure beauty products, Beautycounter is continuously innovating, both in the usage of components and the development of products. However, making much safer products is hard and our rigorous testing process implies that much of the synthetic and natural components typically utilized in individual care products do not meet our requirements for security. That is why we are delighted to support the Sustainable Chemistry Research and Development Act of 2018 presented today by Senator Coons (D-DE) and Senator Collins (R-ME). This crucial expense will broaden the number of safe, sustainable components available to customer product business such as Beautycounter by developing a federal sustainable chemistry program that promotes sustainable chemistry research, training and education.
Sustainable chemistry offers the capability to introduce much safer ingredients to the marketplace while lowering ecological effects and waste generation. As Joel Tickner, Executive Director of the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3) Sustainable Chemistry Alliance keeps in mind,” [c] urrent research study recommend that the international sustainable chemical market will surpass $100 billion by 2022. The improved governmental coordination offered by the Sustainable Chemistry Research Study and Advancement Act can assist in private sector innovation and production growth in this appealing area, protecting U.S. management in a growing international market.”
At Beautycounter, we recognize the possibility for sustainable chemistry to transform the beauty market. That is why we belong to GC3 and a guiding committee member of the Sustainable Chemistry Alliance, working to bring more secure items to market. Our commitment to sustainable component sourcing, decreasing our manufacturing footprint and strenuous testing to guarantee the safety and efficiency of our personal care products and cosmetics reflects today’s consumer demand. We praise Senators Coons and Collins for introducing legislation that is excellent for business, for consumers and for the environment. Stay tuned for updates to this bill as it moves through the Senate.
