The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database Ratings, from 0-2, are in the parentheses after the specific product. 0-2 is the safe range, 0 being completely non-toxic. The EWG rating system is not perfect and it is important to review the ingredients on products. However, it is a fantastic starting place for learning about ingredients and possible toxicity. Some companies have been known to not send in the full listing and thus rate higher than they should and some ingredients have been entered into the system in such a manner as to come out in the toxic range when it is not at all toxic. See the Misinformation of “Skin Deep” on the Sukipure website if you are interested in knowing more about the strengths and weaknesses of the EWG skin deep database. Overall I am a huge believer in the work of the Environmental Working Group and this incredible database. No one can expect it to be perfect. People just have to be aware.

EVO Green Rating

Every product on EVO is assigned a number of leaves to represent how green it is. The more green leaves, the greener the product. In response to this increasing demand for product transparency and truly environmentally-friendly attributes, EVO spent several years developing an objective, science-based technology to screen millions of products for their environmentally-sustainable attributes and then rate them on a green scale represented by green-leaves: a score of one leaf means there is something about the product which makes it “green,” whereas a score of five leaves often means the product is currently one of the best choices for the people and the environment.

Additionally, each product is assigned “Green Attributes” to indicate why the product is green.
