Yuka is a free mobile app that allows you to scan the barcodes of food and personal care products and instantly see their impact on your health. A rating and detailed information help you understand the analysis of each product.

When a product has a negative impact on your health, Yuka also recommends similar but healthier alternative products.


Yuka is a 100% independent project : product reviews and recommendations of healthier alternatives are done in an objective way. No brand or manufacturer can influence them in one way or another. Furthermore, there is no in-app advertising. You can access detailed information on our business model on our website (


Yuka established a database that contains 700,000 food products and 300,000 cosmetic products.

Each food product is evaluated according to 3 objective criteria: nutritional quality, presence of additives and organic aspect of the product.

The method to analyse cosmetic products is based on the analysis of all the ingredients of the product. Each ingredient is assigned a risk level according to the latest scientific data.

Life Changing

I never write reviews but I am blown away by this app. It is very user friendly, informative, and non-biased. My entire family and many friends have downloaded Yuka and since then we have abandoned many products that we thought were fine but are actually full of potentially harmful ingredients. I scan every item with Yuka before I put it in my cart. You can really tell the difference in overall well-being after switching your products over to those that aren’t full of additives, saturated fats, sulfates, exc. 100% recommend!!!

Very informative and easy to use. Please support it to be used in Taiwan!

What I like:
- it explains everything in a way that even people not an expert in nutrition or chemical field can understand easily.
- the database is huge that I can almost find everything so far.
- user interface is cute and color tone is also very nice that I enjoy using it.

What I wish to be improved:
- Taiwan is not supported to use it. What a pity! Cosmetics and life style are super trending in Taiwan now. Please support it soon
- When sending mail within App, it requires iOS user to use default Apple mail app. I use gmail all the time and I don’t want to re-install Apple mail only to send the feedback/report problem. Please support send message via installed mail app or within app directly.

Well done team! Thank you for making this app!

Thank you :)

The app is currently only available on app stores in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia. We apologize for any misunderstanding and disappointment this may have caused.

At the present time, our team is not large enough to operate in multiple countries.

However, we plan to gradually expand internationally :)

You can write us directly from the application.

I retesting additional I do source

I’m a new app user. A sales clerk recommended to me after she observed I was looking at ingredients in various products. I’m unclear what makes a product excellent or bad, while I’m pleased that over half of the products I normally buy are excellent (and sad half ate poor or bad). Ugh.

Thanks for your comment, we're glad that the app helps you to see clearly through the product information!
