What's in your products? An introduction to the best cosmetics database

Are you overwhelmed and unsure if any of your personal care products are safe? Do not despair! The Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database is loaded with products and information about ingredients.

They rate products on a scale of 0-10 with 0 being completely safe and 10 being dangerous. Each rating gives a detailed description of why it was given that rating and helps you easily identify the harmful chemicals. The database currently has 68,807 products including men's and women's personal care, childcare products, and many other items we put on our body. This site has never let me down. I have always been able to find specific products as well as browse for the safest product. 

Don't just trust me? What about the other 243,122,877 searches since 2004? Check it out! Just enter the name of the product and the brand or browse through and see how the things you use every day rank.
