See how your personal care products rate in EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.
Bad news: Punxsutawney Phil just predicted six more weeks of winter. If you’re anything like me, that means six more weeks of slathering on moisturizer, lip balm and lotion while wishing for warmer days – and less dry skin!
The trouble is, chemicals with strong links to cancer and endocrine disruption – think parabens, phthalates and formaldehyde – are in many of the personal care products we use every day.
That’s why there’s no better time to check out EWG’s Skin Deep® Cosmetics Database!
With more than 71,000 products, Skin Deep® is the world's largest safety guide to personal care products. So go ahead, look up your favorite moisturizers, shampoos, toothpastes and more to see how they score!
And that’s a good thing, because the average American is exposed to 126 cosmetics ingredients every day – and none of them are required to be tested for safety before they’re sold in the marketplace.
Big corporations don’t tell you this. And the government doesn’t demand it. EWG’s Skin Deep® is the only place where you can find out what’s really going on your skin and into your body.
Skin Deep®’s easy-to-use rating system helps you make safer, healthier product choices. A low rating means lower hazard concern; higher-scoring products should be avoided.
With EWG’s Skin Deep®, you can make safer, healthier choices about the products you use every day.
