Student-led event introduces healthier alternative beauty products

Over 20 young women filled the International Lounge of the J.C. Williams Center on Wednesday, Oct. 17 to learn about Beautycounter, an alternative to harmful beauty products that contain hazardous ingredients.

Sophomores Lauren Carmona and Julia Slonkosky led the event, providing chips and buffalo chicken dip to the attendees while sharing illuminating information about risky beauty products.

The hosts shared this information both through a video advertising Beautycounter and through a website designed to help people find non-harmful beauty products. The information was followed up by a raffle for gift cards and Beautycounter products, as well as an opportunity to sample some of the products Carmona and Slonkosky brought from their own repertoire.

According to the informational video the ladies viewed, Beautycounter is a company that makes purely organic and safe beauty products, ranging from makeup to face masks to shampoos. The company was founded by Gregg Renfrew, who began Beautycounter when she saw that other companies used hazardous ingredients in their products that could often cause cancer and other skin and bodily ailments and which were not restricted by the FDA.
