Needs more info
I like the way they give you helpful information and advice on what to look for when you are purchasing everyday items. I was already doing most of the recommendations. I just wish this app would also list actual items to buy or safe to use (When I scan the product that I already have, it didn’t tell me if the product was on the “safe to use list”). Just a suggestion.
I was looking for an app where I could scan an item and have the app tell me about the ingredients and why I should avoid them. With this app you scan an item and it tells you what to avoid when shopping for that particular type of product.
So many wonderful tips on how to avoid toxic chemicals and live a more healthy lifestyle. It’s not the slickest app design, but has tons of valuable information. Worth sharing with family and loved ones too.
