How are rating calculated?

Each component is rated according to its level of danger or its potentially undesirable effects on humans and nature... All this thanks to a color code, symbolized by a flower, ranging from green to red.


At the end of 2017, two engineering students from the SIGMA chemistry school in Clermont-Ferrand took part in the INCI Beauty project. Since November 2018, a chemical engineer has joined us and gives us his scientific support to give you the best guidance on the function of INCI ingredients, in order to offer consistent rating and objective results, regardless of any commercial interest.

So far I love this app. I've been checking all my products and adding photos. Fascinating to see how some ingredients that are allowed (and in so many products) are banned elsewhere. Something to think about. The one huge negative are the full page ads. The first one I saw upon opening the app was for Facebook and I clicked it thinking I'd be using my FB account to use the app. The X on the ads needs to be more obvious. Other than that, I don't mind the ads. The app use is worth it.

This is a must have app to have today. The app points out all the controversial and risky ingredients, and makes it easy to add new products. Very useful when making decisions, and it also makes you more aware of the impact that various ingredients can have on your body and the planet. Thank you for this helpful app!

Highly unreliable. No explanation on how they base their score. E.g. a product with 17 green items, 3 orange and 1 red has 5.1/20. How? Why? Also why is one substance red and another not? For reliability sources have to be linked to each ingredient. And in the app not a single source was listed. When I searched for the ingredients on the web I couldn't find support in the claims this app makes. Most information about the app is in French. It seems that not everything is translated to English
