What a great idea!

App enables consumers to scan and check cosmetic product ingredients.

I’m always looking up ingredients on the web to learn more about them, how they are derived, where they come from and if there are studies, I could go on. Truth be told, labels are confusing, what with things like “designer ingredients” that are actually several ingredients combined, this app will be much more convenient and more clear.

The app assesses products based on what is deemed to be the safety of the ingredients, which is based on references to government lists of prohibited chemicals, studies in peer-reviewed journals and regulatory guidance.

I hope cosmetic companies get on board and submit their products to the Think Dirty database in an effort to become more transparent.

In Health and Happiness
