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.

Your data isn't accurate, the % nutritional value and the mg of the listed mineral were reversed. All of the values of the item I was looking at were backwards in this way, I know this because I was looking at the physical box with nutrition facts on it while comparing it to your app. This makes me think all of the data used to calculate your "scores" is questionable at best, which sucks because the concept behind this app is amazing and could potentially be an excellent tool.

I want to like this app, I really do, but there are some serious problems. When you scan an item and it fails to find something, you can easily scan something again. But when viewing results, there should be a quick save button and a quick scan a new item button instead of going back. This is a horrible UI/UX issue. In addition, it seems like they just grep nutrition information and do not properly parse it before posting. The label information is backwards on their site. Misleading as hell.

I love the EWG organization and what it does, and I use the app as best I can to find greener and cleaner products. However, the app needs much improvement to be not only useful but EASY to use. For example, I'm searching for dish soap, I get a number of results, review the results, and save them for later. When I tap out of the details screen, I expect to go back to search results, but I'm taken back to the search screen where I have to start all over again. Engage a UX team to help you!
