"Skin Deep" is a great tool to check on safety of the skin care products!
Our government does not and cannot mandate safety studies of cosmetics, and 89% of the over 10,000 ingredients used have not been assessed for safety by the
industry's review panel! Environmental Working Group is working to change that, but in the meantime, you can use Environmental Working Group “Skin Deep” database to find safer choices for you and your family. The database to check up on your shampoo's safety is now new and improved. Environmental Working Group toiled away and nearly doubled the number of personal care products in the enormously popular Skin Deep and cross-checked their ingredients with 37 toxicity databases. There are some nifty new features like company rankings, a "Custom Shopping List"
creator, and even a page where you can
add products that aren't in the
database and get instant safety reports!
