Dare to Compare: High End Luxury Facial Moisturizer with Be You Authentic Beauty Skin Renewal Solution
By Tera Warner
It’s time for us to release our latest love project–a line of authentic beauty care products designed to empower and improve a woman’s self-confidence and her gorgeous, natural glow. Since most women are used to spending their pennies on little plastic bottles of petroleum-based products to make them “pretty,” we felt it important to accompany our authentic beauty project with a re-education initiative. We’re trying to change the way women understand and care for their beauty, and hey! If the whole wide cosmetic industry as we know it suddenly came crashing down, we probably wouldn’t shed too many tears.
While billions are spent on botox and chemical concoctions making women sick in the name of “beauty” we’re trying to lay a few bricks on the road to a sustainable, ethical, empowering and Nature-based model for beauty. A model that isn’t about how you look, but how you live and that allows beauty to be what it should--a true reflection of your overall well-being and an inspiring demonstration of authenticity!
We’re starting off with a series of “dare to compare” blogs that look at a few common luxury beauty care products with our be you authentic beauty products.
What’s In It?
Here’s the label for the high end moisturizer:
Here’s an Interpretation of Those Ingredients:
Lauryl Sulfate: Skin or eye irritation, exposure over time may cause allergic reactions of redness, swelling or hives.
Hexylene glycol: petroleum-based, flammable chemical
Propylene glycol: antifreeze
PEG-8: Plyethylene glycol: may be contaminated with carcinogens known to cause breast cancer, brain cancer, uterine cancer and if used on broken skin may cause kidney toxicity.
Retinol palmitate – often in sunscreen to break down UV light. However, when exposed to UV light it breaks down to create free radicals which damage the skin and cause skin tumours. Can be toxic to a developing fetus. (often listed on ingredient lists as “vitamin A”
Undyclenic acid: preservative, surfactant, cleanser, cosmetic biocide (kills life), antifungal, causes organ toxicity.
Sodium benzoate: preservative that when it reacts with Vitamin C (which is listed in these ingredients) forms benzene–a known cause of leukaemia.
BHT – Butylated Hydroxytoluene: an anti-oxidant which reacts with oxygen free radicals to slow down the autoxidation rate of ingredients in a product that can cause changes in the taste or color. primarily used to prevent fats in foods from becoming rancid – but it is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid. Sure sounds like BHT is something that should definitely be in our food, right?

Here’s our label:
Here’s a little bit about the benefits to the health and skin of those ingredients:
Golden jojoba oil – This golden oil naturally rich in lipids and peptides creating a soft, silky, feel that has long lasting conditioning effects on the skin. It also smooths and softens the skin, and contains Vitamin E.
Virgin coconut oil – There are SO many benefits to coconut oil – here are a few: it doesn’t clog pores, it is easily absorbed into the skin, and it reduces wrinkles and fine lines, is anti fungal, loaded with nutrition for the skin.
Lavender essential oil – Just a few of the many benefits of lavender are that it calms the mind and relieves anxiety (put a few drops in your bath for instant, deep relaxation), promotes healing, prevents scarring , helps even skin tone.
How Much Does it Cost?
Both products come in a 50ml container.
The conventional luxury skin product costs $483 Canadian. (Be you’s Skin renewal Solution is $50, but it works out to being even less expensive when purchased with our be you authentic beauty luxury self-pampering kit.)
However, the real cost of these products can’t just be measured in dollars and cents. Using toxic beauty care products not only damages the skin and interferes with good health, it continues to send the message to marketing companies that we’re looking for a quick fix
