EWG recently combined two of its’ best resources (Food Scores and Skin Deep, which we featured in Volume 4of The RUNDOWN) into one new easy-to use, visually pleasing app: Healthy Living. (It’s a much better name in our opinion!) Simply scan the barcode or enter the name of a product and you’ll quickly get a rating based on a 1 to 10 scale based on a variety of elements including ingredient concerns. Review the findings (the lower the score, the better) and decide whether this is a healthy product for you and your family.
The app also has a “Browse” function, which allows you to search for ratings for EWG Verified Products, Sunscreens, Cosmetics, and Foods, which are then further broken down by category. This summer we clicked on the Sunscreen category to get a list of the “Best beach and sport sunscreens” after finding that our usual (very popular) brand was not quite as safe as we once believed.
HOW MUCH IT COSTS: It’s free.
