Putting What Matters Most into Focus

It shouldn’t be hard to make informed, safe choices when you’re buying your favorite personal care products, drinking water or feeding your family.

But it is.  

We know there’s a lot of noise around the issues we all care about. EWG conducts research and gathers information about consumer products, cosmetics, energy and toxic chemicals. To us, these aren’t just “current trends.” They’re essential elements for living good, healthy lives. We have the right to know what’s in these essential goods, and who's standing up for our public health.
