Do yourself a favor and download the Think Dirty app. You'll be as shocked at I was going through our products and seeing how "unclean" they are. Think Dirty® app is the easiest way to learn about the potentially toxic ingredients in your cosmetics and personal care products. Just scan the product barcode and Think Dirty will give you easy-to-understand info on the product, its ingredients, and shop cleaner options! Read more about the app & how it works here.

Cosmetics and personal care products are one of the least regulated industries in the United States. Europe and Canada have far more regulation and have banned so many more chemicals. The FDA has banned only 11 chemicals for use in cosmetics while the EU has banned 1,328 chemicals. WHATT!! Correspondingly, the Canadian government maintains and updates a Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist with many of the chemicals listed that are either restricted or prohibited from use in cosmetics. Crazy huh?
Do yourself a favor and join me in tossing harmful products we've been using for so long! For the health of you and your family! We are creating a Clean it Up Series to share our top favorite clean products. We have researched via Think Dirty for a green light & used in our own home. Stay tuned!
