Trying to remember all the harmful ingredients out there isn’t easy (there are a lot), so Beautycounter developed The Never List™, which now has more than 1,500 questionable chemicals in it—and they’re all prohibited from being used as ingredients in our formulas. This is their clean promise. They also created an extensive ingredient selection process so that the products we sell meet our safety standards and create a superior end result.

Among commonly used active ingredients, Beautycounter does not use ingredients like retinoids or hydroquinone which are allowed or partially restricted in Europe. And in the area of preservatives, we prohibit all parabens and formaldehyde releasers while in contrast, some parabens are allowed in the European markets, including methy and ethyl parabens as well as propyl and butyl parabens. Moreover, while Europe has banned formaldehyde, many formaldehyde releasers such as diazolidinyl urea, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate and bronopol are still allowed.
