When Santa Monica-based Gregg Renfrew founded Beautycounter in 2011, she set out to shift the focus of the personal care industry toward transparency and safety. Renfrew’s nontoxic skincare and makeup brand has since helped pioneer the national clean beauty movement, distributing its goods through 30,000-plus independent consultants. Here, the mother of three lets us in on what she does when she’s not advocating for updated federal regulations, guest lecturing at Stanford University, or partnering with nonprofits such as Healthy Child Healthy World. beautycounter.com.
