EWG’s Skin Deep Mobile App: Obsessed

By  | 

If you think of all grooming rituals throughout the day, there’s quite a few! Washing your face, brushing your teeth, shampooing and conditioning your hair, finding the best body wash, hand soap, sunscreen, lotion, etc. EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Database is the world’s largest safety reference tool for personal care products. We absolutely love this mobile app because you can scan a bar code as you’re shopping in whatever store and get quick information on how beneficial the product is for you. The app rates products on a scale of 1-10 — the lower the number, the better!

Little did I know, my face mask wasn’t the best thing to use on my face….. 🙁
