WHAT IT IS: Are you curious about the ingredients in personal care products such as sunscreen, soaps, and cosmetics? Skin Deep is an app that allows you to get critical information on the ingredients you put on your skin.
WHY WE LIKE IT: We all care about our health. Skin Deep app offers a simple way to search for products you already use or intend to buy, and get their safety rating.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is the information source for the EWG Skin Deep cosmetic app database, which includes more than 70,000 products. It is THE non-profit that polices and rates products (based on ingredients) from a scale of 1 (best) to 10 (worst), and helps to make sense of the ingredients we read on the back of the bottle. We’re all for making safer choices.
HOW MUCH IT COSTS: Free.
NOW, TAKE THE FIRST STEP: Download the app. Type in the name or scan the barcode for the product you use or intend to buy. Search the rating system and read about the ingredient safety of your product!
