Very misleading now pushing notices more than daily

chipotlite

I downloaded this app a few years ago after reading about it on a favorite bloggers site. She was very impressed. I checked a few things I use and a few things the blogger was throwing out. I have a BS, MS, and doctorate degree in the sciences. My masters is in Environmental Sciences. I have always worked in the biological sciences. I found the app information and scoring quite alarmist. Here’s an example. Selsun Blue is listed as toxic. The reason because it has Selenium. Selenium can be toxic. But it is also an essential mineral for animals. So just stating it is toxic is silly. A short exposure to selenium in your shampoo should not be harmful. In fact tinea versicolor a fungal infection of the skin can be treated by applying Selsun Blue to your skin and waiting 20 minutes before showering. So the suggestion that simple use of Selsun Blue as a dandruff shampoo is dangerous because it includes selenium is at least misleading.

I haven’t used the app in a few years.

What lead me to comment today is the fact that this app has started sending me notices. It is pushing products.

Imperative

Being that the cosmetic laws about beauty products haven't changed since 1938 this App is something every gal should have! It's all too easy to get caught up in all the joyful colors at Sephora and spend a billion dollars on things that will kill you. I'd much rather know what's actually in that bottle and make the decision whether to add it to my routine or keep searching for a product that works yet won't harm me. Their mission is awesome to give the knowledge bak to the consumer even if iit will take a while to populate the database completely. I find it frustrating that stuff isn't in there yet and then I remember how many products must be out there and I help by uploading. I give them 5 stars for even undertaking that responsibility. Thank You !

Be Mindful

LindaSueMindful

Just discovered this app. I read through the ratings and I give this a 5. It doesn't list all the products I use and "true" it may list a product as a "9" with only one or two ingredients making the "hit" list; however, as "sun" damage is "cumulative" and leads to skin cancer (as I have experienced) more than likely using products with ingredients that are on the "hit" list can lead to "cumulative" changes in the skin/body. I just think in this day and age - "be mindful" of products placed on your skin as well as food you intake into your body. I've sent the link to this app to my daughter and daughter-in-law who are both in their early 30's. More than enough time to become more "mindful".
