More than ten thousand different ingredients are used to make personal care products, and nearly 90 percent have not been evaluated for safety. Learn what you’re putting on your skin with the cosmetics safety database from the Environmental Working Group. You can search by product, ingredient, or manufacturer to read toxicity information and safety reviews on items like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, makeup, hair-styling products, nail polish, contact lens cleaner, bubble bath, sunscreen, and baby products.
It's easy to make your own chemical-free personal products. Follow the links below to create natural and non-toxic DIY alternatives to store-bought products.
