EWG created our Skin Deep® database as a way to combat the serious deficiencies in cosmetics regulation. Still, navigating store aisles can be difficult. Our researchers have evaluated thousands of safety studies and ingredient labels to bring you our top recommendations for which products to avoid.

For more information on cosmetics safety visit Skin Deep®, and stay up to date with the latest in regulation with our cosmetics hub. When shopping, keep an eye out for the EWG VERIFIED® mark, which signifies that a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for your health.
