Skin Deep

A new companion app allows users to scan the bar codes of their favorite products right at the store and learn how safe — or not — an item is.

Skin Deep app

The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database, which tracks the toxicity of ingredients in personal-care products, has a new companion app that allows users to scan the bar codes of their favorite products right at the store and learn how safe — or not — an item is. With lax regulation of health-and-beauty products in the United States, the database and app play a key role in consumer protection — and with analysis of more than 72,000 products, 2,500 brands, and 9,000 ingredients, you will be able to check on almost every product you find. Available free for iPhone and Android. To download the app visit: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/app/
