Hosting a Facebook online event on Wednesday, 3/22 starting @ 11:30 AM EST. Join even if you can’t be there for the live launch. The event will remain open for 2 weeks. There will be much information shared on some of the most toxic chemicals for children which highlights why Beautycounter’s mission carries such significance.
WHY AN EVENT ESPECIALLY DEDICATED TO THE YOUNGSTERS IN OUR LIVES? Here is an excerpt from the event script.
Children are a population particularly vulnerable to toxic exposure. Their bodies are smaller, and, therefore, the same amount of chemicals equates to a higher percentage of body weight. Their protective systems are not fully developed and thus do not offer the same shielding and processing as an adult body. Also, due to rapid development and increased number of processes taking place, children’s bodies, systems and brains may be more severely impacted.
This is especially true for development during pregnancy, younger children and kids going through hormonal changes.
