Needs more info
I like the way they give you helpful information and advice on what to look for when you are purchasing everyday items. I was already doing most of the recommendations. I just wish this app would also list actual items to buy or safe to use (When I scan the product that I already have, it didn’t tell me if the product was on the “safe to use list”). Just a suggestion.
I was looking for an app where I could scan an item and have the app tell me about the ingredients and why I should avoid them. With this app you scan an item and it tells you what to avoid when shopping for that particular type of product.
Full of so much helpful info...
There is so much great info in this free app. Every time I use it I find something new and helpful. I really like the Top 10 Tips in the Label and DIY Guide.
