The Environmental Working Group (EWG) offers a database of cosmetics, ranking them according to safety/health risk. Their databases consist of over 64,000 consumer products.
To purchase safe cosmetics, please visit this site so that those that are health risks do not get bought. Share the link with your friends and family.
Some companies are making safer products today and striving to make even safer products in the future. Many of those companies have signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a pledge to remove hazardous chemicals and replace them with safe alternatives. Click here to search for Compact signers.
The Environmental Working Group is the nation’s leading environmental health research and advocacy organization. Our mission is to serve as a watchdog to see that Americans get straight facts, unfiltered and unspun, so they can make healthier choices and enjoy a cleaner environment. We use the power of information to create cutting-edge research and advocacy that transform government policies and the marketplace in order to conserve land and water, produce and use energy responsibly and ensure that food and consumer products are free of harmful chemicals. We investigate government subsidies that encourage wasteful practices, and we support policies that promote thoughtful stewardship of our land and natural resources. With your help — and with the help of hundreds of organizations with whom we partner — we are creating a healthier and cleaner environment for the next generation and beyond.
