Description

From food to shampoo – we are exposed to chemicals every second, yet we know very little about them. To navigate this complicated world and make safer choices, EWG combined two of our most popular resources to form our Healthy Living App. Now, the product health and safety ratings for over 200,000 food and cosmetics products are simply one click away.

Scan a product
Review its rating.
Pick the better choice.

It’s that simple.

Get to Know: EWG’s Skin Deep

Have you ever counted how many cosmetics or personal care products you use in a day? Chances are it's about 10. Through those 10 products you expose yourself to more than 126 ingredients a day. Most people use these products without a second thought, believing that the government must certainly be policing the safety of the mixtures in these myriad containers. But it doesn’t.

That’s why EWG created Skin Deep -- the world’s largest personal care products safety reference tool. It offers easy-to-navigate safety ratings for nearly 80,000 products.

Get to Know: EWG’s Food Scores

How do we know what we’re eating, really? There are so many claims on food labels these days, and ingredients no one can pronounce.

We created EWG’s Food Scores because we all want to know what we’re putting in our bodies. Food Scores rates more than 80,000 foods, 5,000 ingredients and 1,500 brands.

Many other food apps rate food products on nutrition, but EWG went two steps further. Products are rated based on three elements: nutrition, ingredient concerns and degree of processing. We combine these three scores into a single overall product score. We weigh nutrition most heavily, ingredient concerns next and processing relatively lightly. We rate all foods on a 1 to 10 scale, with the best foods scoring a 1 and the worst foods scoring a 10.

Amazing App!

I have been waiting for this app for so long - glad it's finally here! It's everything I hoped it would be. Thank you! I have used the Skin Deep website database for over 7 years and now I have an app for it. I have tried out the scanner and it works great. Can't wait to see how this database expands and hopefully helps to change our personal and commercial environments for the better. Everyone should have this app!

Useless

Of the ten products I scanned, only one barcode was recognized ... a Gillette aftershave. Colgate toothpastes? Nope. Various major brand shampoos? No. Deodorants? Again no. Big waste of time. Why release an app like this with such an incomplete database?
