PERSONAL CARE PRODUCT CHEMICALS:
New : *Scan for Toxic Chemicals* App!
We’re trying not to freak out, but THIS MIGHT BE THE BEST APP EVER.
The free app will tell you if shampoo or makeup contains potentially toxic chemicals (“BHA / BHT, PEGs, petrochemicals, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde releasing agents, siloxanes, sulfates, fragrance/parfum and non-biodegradable ingredients”).
Users can scan a product in question, and immediately learn if it is “clean” or “dirty.” If deemed dirty, the app will offer similar and safe alternatives to buy instead. The app can also be used to raid your own bathroom closet and get rid of old products that could be unsafe.
There’s even a handy iPhone case reminding you what to watch out for in shampoo.
