Skin Deep, an online safety guide for cosmetics and personal care products. Our aim was to fill in where companies and the government leave off: companies are allowed to use almost any ingredient they wish, and our government doesn't require companies to test products for safety before they're sold. EWG's scientists built Skin Deep to be a one-of-a-kind resource, integrating our in-house collection of personal care product ingredient listings with more than 50 toxicity and regulatory databases.
Now in its fourth year and third major update, our Skin Deep database provides you with easy-to-navigate safety ratings for nearly a quarter of all products on the market — 27,206 products with 7,111 ingredients. At about one million page views per month, Skin Deep is the world's largest and most popular product safety guide.
I'm a big user of Kinerase, Philosophy, Fresh, Pureology, Bliss.....I could go on and on..... all have lots of bad bad stuff. Kinerase, surprisingly, isn't rated too bad, and I love it so much, I'll stick with it. Even my Pureology shampoo and conditioner, which are sulphate free, vegan and the rest of it, rated poorly. No sulphates and still it can cause me cancer?! Ack! I'm also a mayjah fan of Bare Escentuals. LOVE Bare Escentuals. It's supposed to be pure, clean, mineral makeup right? Not. Full of toxins.... What's a product queen to do? Stella McCartney's new organic line, here I come........
