Tera is building a Health App to empower people who live in the modern world to adopt a “Blue Zone'' lifestyle and create personal and planetary health.
To this day, Tera has built a Healthy Shopping solution for everyday products including Personal Care & Cosmetics, Household Cleaning Products, and Food Products.
Tera Product Search Engine and Barcode Scanner are scoring the health impact of products sold by national retailers, empowering users to detect and avoid toxic chemicals, allergens, and unhealthy foods while also consuming more sustainably.
The current App Features include these 5 skills:
Detect and Avoid Toxins
Avoid chemicals such as organ toxicants, endocrine-disruptors, reproductive toxicants, carcinogens and skin and eye irritants, and get recommendations for healthier including Organic products.
Detect and Avoid Allergens
Avoid allergens in food and non-food products that trigger the immune system to react and inflame the skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system, and get recommendations for healthier alternatives.
Detect and Avoid Food Products with a poor nutritional profile
Avoid products with too many unhealthy ingredients and not enough healthy ones and get recommendations for healthier alternatives.
Detect and Avoid Food Products that cause disease
Avoid or limit the complications of existing chronic diseases and find healthier alternatives
Type 2 diabetes
Detect and Avoid Products that damage our Planet
The consumer products we use everyday and the processed foods and wholefoods grown by conventional agriculture have a profound negative impact on our Planet: Killing aquatic life, damaging our ozone layer or destroying rainforests for example. Tera detects them and recommends better alternatives.
Consumers and the Planet Need Protection from Toxic Chemicals
The average person is exposed to over 100 chemicals daily. The EU has banned 1,328 chemicals in cosmetics vs. 12 in the US. We are not protected.
Chemical exposure has been linked to rising rates of cancer, asthma, autism, ADHD, reproductive problems and other health issues, not to mention the impact on our environment, rivers & oceans, and the ozone layer.
According to the EPA, less than 1% of the 80,000 chemicals used in consumer products in the U.S. have been rigorously tested for human and environmental safety.
Solution: Tera has analyzed and scored 200K+ household cleaning, personal care and cosmetics products sold in the US at the ingredient level based on international chemical safety standards in collaboration with health and environmental toxicologists. New products are analyzed and scored everyday and added to our database.
Allergies triggered by consumer products are on the rise
85 million or 25% of Americans now need to avoid allergens in the food they buy.
The number of American children who experience food allergies has been growing about four times faster than the population has for at least 20 years.
It is very hard to know from a product label alone what allergens are present in a product.
Solution: Tera is detecting the presence of allergens in products and empowers users to avoid products with the allergens they are sensitive to.
Processed food is killing us
60% of calories for adult Americans come from processed foods; and 66% for children!
They are full of sugar, starch, toxic additives, allergens, chemicals that make them addictive, and are nutritionally very poor
They are causing chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Cancer
Solution: Tera is detecting toxic additives, allergens, poor nutrients and foods that cause chronic disease and recommends healthier alternatives

Ratings and Reviews
Earth Friendly App
So I started slowly on deciding how much time I wanted to invest in being a better consumer. I have certain ingredients and products I really want to avoid and sometimes it’s impossible to know if you’ve succeeded in avoiding micro beads or other things. Now my concern isn’t about the amount of time I want to invest, it’s how much better can I make my buying habits. Tera Shopping really does take the “second job” of researching off my plate. And it’s easy. And free. And I love it! Keep up the great work!
Tera is the app all lazy “researchers” needed!! Before Tera I always asked my best friend for recommendations on clean products I should be using because I hate doing the research for it myself. This app has changed my life!! Makes it so easy to find a clean, environmentally friendly, low impact product with just a few simple searches where I know exactly what I’m getting and where I can buy it from. I love it!
Easy to use and great information
I made my first purchase today using this app. I didn’t really think too much about what some of the chemicals/ingredients were inside of the products. This app gave me “no-brainer” insight into what to look out for and showed options that were safer for the environment and for your health; without having to pay a ton for the product.
So far… I love it.
