Can you be pro-commerce and pro-regulation? Absolutely.
Before starting this blog, I had no idea that the cosmetics and personal care industry is not regulated. The law that governs the multi-billion dollar industry is about a page long and has not been updated since, wait for it, 1938.
World War II was new. The internet didn’t exist. Do you honestly think nothing has changed in the beauty industry since then? No.
Companies like Beautycounter are stepping up, promoting advocacy, educating others and making amazing products that are effective and safe.
