skin deep

I came across a great resource online called Skin Deep.

The website is self described as "...a personal care product safety guide with in-depth information on 14,835 products - 1,051 brands of lotion, lip balm, deodorant, sunscreen and other popular products - and the 7,093 ingredients that form them. With its core of 37 toxicity and regulatory databases, Skin Deep provides safety ratings and brand-by-brand comparisons that can help consumers choose safer products."

I have been wondering about ingredients in body products after hearing about some dangerous things being used (see dirty bubbles post). I am in the midst of researching more about various natural body products, but in the meantime was glad to be able to type in some brand name items on this website and see how they ranked.
