Healthy living just got that easy.
From snacks to shampoos: We are exposed to chemicals every second, yet we know very little about them. To help you navigate this complicated world and make safer choices, EWG combined two of our most popular resources, our Skin Deep and Food Scores databases, to form our Healthy Living App. Now EWG’s trusted ratings for more than 120,000 food and cosmetics products are at your fingertips.
Just scan a barcode, search by name or browse by category, and EWG will give you an easy-to-understand 1-10 score (1 being the best!) backed by science you can trust.
Better beauty and healthy living has never been easier.

Really love what this app is trying to do
But the scanner option hasn’t worked for me once while shopping - which was a big part of its draw. The scanner immediately captures the barcode image without focusing and then freezes while processing. Even when you search by brand name, it seems like EWG has a long way to go as far as getting more brands cataloged into their system- a lot of searches (even well known brands) come up with nothing. Fingers crossed they’re working on updates to make this app as useful and easy as it can be so more consumers utilize it and brands continue to become more accountable.
I’ve been researching a lot of products lately on this app and the Think Dirty app. I want to make sure my skin care and cosmetic routine is clean. I keep running into the same problems with this app when researching products.
1. Product inventory needs to be updated. I’m often researching very popular brands but they don’t exist on skin deep.
2. Not user friendly. I can’t “click” on the each ingredients to know more about the rating/concern. (Think Dirty has this option) Example: is the ingredient cancer-causing or just a skin irritant? I have to go to the full site to look at each ingredient in detail.
3. Product information needs to be updated. Many products are only listed for old formulas....like 2014. Nobody is using the old formulas! If you still have a bottle of cleanser or foundation from 5 years ago you need to toss it for reasons other than possible toxic ingredients.....it’s OLD and products have shelf lives, especially if they are clean products.
EWG/skindeep..... please make changes! This app is important and useful. It just needs to be updated and tweaked.
I would be happier if the app included household cleaners as most store retailers sell a lot of hazardous- not “clean” cleaning products. It shouldn’t be too much to ask to expand a little. Other than that- I find it difficult to understand a lot of the chemicals explanations.
I use another app for my beauty supplies only because it is a little more understandable and they break down every ingredient your looking at. Maybe I’m just having a difficult time navigating it but if
This app expands to include household products then I would probably use it a lot more to learn and understand better.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
