Healthy living just got that easy.

From snacks to shampoos: We’re 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 four of our most popular resources, our Skin Deep®, sunscreen, cleaners and Food Scores databases, to form our Healthy Living App. Now EWG’s trusted ratings for more than 160,000 food, cleaning 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 to 10 score (1 being the best!), backed by science you can trust.

Better beauty and healthy living have never been easier.

Get the app that Kourtney Kardashian trusts!

Somewhat useful but disorganized

Just installed. Has lots of items, but they are organized somewhat illogically and haphazardly. For example, If you browse through the “meat” category, there no “chicken” subcategory. There are plenty of subcategories for many different kinds of frozen chicken, but there’s no subcategory for fresh chicken. Why doesn’t the meat category divide into subcategories for the different kinds of animal, then sub-subcategories for fresh and frozen (or vice versa)?

Also, I would like to see the different varieties of fresh food compared. For example, that tangerines have more pesticides than oranges. Or that chicken is more environmentally friendly than beef. Or that one variety of apple is healthier than another. And it would be nice to have direct access to the dirty dozen, which is the entry point for many people to EWG’s work.

Scanning barcode brings up wrong product; can’t submit it

I love using the app to select products I am considering purchasing. I even donate to EWG because I value this app. Today, I was disappointed in the app. I tried scanning the barcode for the dietary supplement “Vital Proteins Original Collagen Peptides”, a widely available product - even available at Costco - and what came up was “AspenClean All Purpose Cleaner, Grapefruit & Lavender”. I searched on the name and nothing came up. There is not a way in the app to submit the product unless scanning the barcode brings up no results (something I practice all the time when a scan brings up the option to submit the product).

I’d love it if EWG added another option for submitting a product for review.

Needs improvement

EWG is helpful to some degree, but you still have to do your own research in order to find out how safe each product really is.

In the ingredients list, one should be able to tap each listed ingredient and obtain its chemical analysis i.e. hazards to skin, hazards to environment etc. A link to a credible source like PubChem would be really good, if you click on any listed ingredient.

Limited database. Please add more products.
