Meet Safer Beauty Bar; a personal care consumer advocacy group, dedicated to raising awareness of the lack of regulations within the personal care industry (aka beauty industry). The Safer Beauty Team is committed to finding safer solutions for you, the American consumer, while advocating for stricter regulations.
This nonprofit organization was created by a team of women entrepreneurs and small business owners, who recently discovered what only 20 percent of Americans know that there are thousands of toxic chemicals still being used in our beauty products and in our everyday personal care products, all across the board. This does not exclude ‘professional’ or ‘high end’ lines. With an 80 year old system still in place, this puts every single one of us at risk when buying deodorant, lotion, soap, makeup, shampoo, aftershave etc.
“I’ve been a business owner for over 10 years and I realized a long time ago that there is power in numbers and how important it is to support one another. Our message is very important and we know it’s going to take a lot of us to get the changes needed. Not only are we working hard on our mission, we are also having a lot of fun. We have more and more people reaching out to us wanting to be a part of it and we couldn’t be happier about that. It’s an exciting time, with a lot of amazing things happening,” says Soraya Garfield, BraBar Boutique and sales rep for Monat.
