Hey guys! So today I wanted to show introduce you to SkinDeep. Let's get started:
SkinDeep can be found at: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ and it is basically an online database to look up products and ingredients and they will give them a rating 0-10 (with 0 being the best) to show you how good or bad they are for you. I have found that they have most products data based but if they don't, they have almost any ingredient so you can always go ingredient by ingredient if you have the patience. I think later on once I am more educated a will do a couple of blog posts on ingredients to avoid and ingredients to look for.
SkinDeep has really helped me, because aside from just going natural I also want to get products that are better for my skin. And I have found that even though a product may say "Natural" or "Organic", that it doesn't always mean that the ingredients they use in the products are good for you. I would totally recommend everyone go onto this site and look-up the products they use on a daily basis and see what is really inside of them. I know it really surprised me to see how much harm a simple cleanser or moisturizer is for your skin and what harmful affects it can have on you.
Don't mean to like freak you guys all out or anything but I think it is really important that you know what you are putting into your body, because your skin is your largest organ and can absorb pretty much anything you put on it. So please, just educate yourself.
