NOTE: This is 1 of 6 Top Safety and Prevention posts, including:

(For wholistic beauty see  FOOD FOR HEALTHY SKIN – MAYO CLINIC and and RADIANT SKIN 101 – Talia Fuhrman)

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 great 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” and/or The Update on EWG 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. See the EWG’s great  Shopper’s Guide to Safe Cosmetics.
