Disclosure Scoring Update

Date posted: 2019-02-01

Ingredient information found on the label is often missing or incomplete, hindering the public from making better choices while they shop. EWG has updated the Guide to Healthy Cleaning to reflect the increased company adoption of digital tools that offer the public access to more complete ingredient information on the go. Starting in February 2019, if a product label has a machine-scannable barcode or QR code that allows consumers to access further ingredient information at the point of sale, the website disclosure score is multiplied by 1.5 and it is calculated from a possible nine points. For more details on our disclosure scoring, please visit step 8 (calculating a product disclosure score) of our methodology.
