Posted by Jill Homiak, editor | Jul 10, 2019 | 39 Once I found out about the Think Dirty app , I scanned all my beauty and personal care products to see how dirty or clean they were Any guesses on the results? You can use the app to look up what chemicals are in your products, and the side effects that they cause I ended up throwing away over 90 percent of my products, and I had to replace them with clean alternatives Finding Clean, Natural Beauty Products I was more interested in finding products with clean ingredients than basing my decisions on the number rating from the app Some products could have a low (good) rating but still have hidden dirty ingredients The app isn't perfect, but it's a great place to start if you're looking to use non-toxic products You can also check the Environmental Working Group (EWG) to see how products rank Don't miss our lists for American Made Vegan Beauty Products and Cruelty Free Makeup Brands and Non Toxic Beauty Brands We Love Why you need natural beauty products you can trust Our skin is our body's largest organ, and whatever we put on our skin is entering our bloodstream It's pretty scary to think I've been regularly using some very toxic products While ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power I realize replacing all your beauty items with clean beauty brands can be a daunting task, but consider replacing each one as you run out of what you're currently using
