I’m Kristie! Like many of you, I didn’t know that when I applied sunscreen, lotion, shampoo and the dozens of other products that I use daily, that I was applying toxic chemicals directly to my skin. In addition, some of these chemicals can get absorbed into our bloodstream.
Like many of us did or do, I assumed that we live in a highly regulated country, so the products I am using must be safe. I honestly, never questioned safety at all until about 10 years ago. I was so surprised when I finally learned that when it comes to the personal care industry, there are very minimal regulations.
Companies are allowed to use known toxins—ingredients that have been linked to cancer, reproductive issues, and hormone disruption—without even disclosing these ingredients to us! Seems crazy, right?
Luckily, it’s not all doom and gloom. There are some companies working hard to create safe skincare products and to change the industry. I’ve been spending tons of time researching them.
I am excited to share what I’ve learned with you and to inspire you to make safer choices!
Yes, you read that right! 1938!
Are you as shocked as I am by this?
Wait for it…
And only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data.
Researchers at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health published a study in 2013 that detected lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminum and five other metals in many popular brands of lipsticks and lip glosses commonly found in drugstores and department stores.
The study also noted that children are especially susceptible to heavy metal accumulation and should not play with make up. Think of all the young girls that apply make-up daily or even multiple times a day?
WELCOME TO SAVVY MINERALS
Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including, but not limited to asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise, and due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home.
What’s worse is the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics) allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful (lead, formaldehyde, and phthalates) in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids every single day, day after day.
We deserve better! It’s time to do something about it!
This is why I’ve partnered up with Young Living
Now, let’s talk about some actual products!
Some natural cosmetic brands use only 100% organic ingredients. This is as pure as makeup can get, but often, the performance is lacking. While Savvy Minerals uses both synthetic and organic ingredients, they never compromise on the safety of the ingredients. Savvy Minerals has developed a groundbreaking and rigorous ingredient screening process, looking for data on skin irritation, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, cumulative exposure (are we exposed to this chemical from other sources) and more.
These products work extremely well and are comparable to the luxurious brands from department stores. Except, they are void of all the harsh chemicals.
Here are a few of the best Young Living Beauty products!
This is by far the best foundation I’ve ever used. It is full coverage and lasts all day, but leaves your skin hydrated and able to breathe.

Blush is something that I’ve always been annoyed with in the past. The powders usually end up breaking, and getting all over the place in my makeup bag. That’s why this creamy blusher is AMAZING! I love the look it gives me, and how easy and mess-free it is.

A mineral-rich mix of kaolin clay and charcoal, Purifying Charcoal Mask works to gently exfoliate, draw out impurities, and soothe. The formula helps improve skin’s overall condition by refining the appearance of pores and increasing elasticity.
