About this app

Scan a product. Review its rating. Pick the better choice.

Healthy living just got that easy.

From snacks to shampoos: We are 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 two of our most popular resources, our Skin Deep and Food Scores databases, to form our Healthy Living App. Now EWG's trusted ratings for more than 120,000 food 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 1-10 score (1 being the best!) backed by science you can trust.

Better beauty and healthy living has never been easier.

This app is useless. It doesn't recognize the most common items being sold. For example I scanned three products in Hollister ( parfum, spray and body lotion). None of them was in the database! Same issue in Target when I scanned multiple food items. I tried a different approach. Looked up a safe product with low score and tried to buy it in the local stores and online( Amazon). Impossible! The idea behind this app is great but unfortunately it doesn't work in real life.

while the website is great, the app is really lacking. The barcode scanner does not work, and there is no way to add barcodes to items that are already in the database for others if they scan the item. I also think it would be nice if you could flag certain ingredients that you want to avoid especially (example for known allergies).

Bring back the old app! The new app is horrible. Nothing scans, I open certain categories and their results are blank. Nothing comes up. Categories that I want are not available. It just works terribly. For instance if I search deodorant it says there are no results available. That's just nuts I know there are results in there but they don't show
