In a world full of processed, genetically modified, and scientifically generated cosmetics, it is no surprise to find the rates of cancer and allergies growing at an alarming rate. Sure, there are brands and companies that claim to be “organic” and “all natural” but some of these claims do not follow through completely.

To help you find the cleanest and best products for your body, an app cleverly named “Think Dirty” has debuted earning a spot in the hearts of health gurus. While the name may turn you off, this free database gives you information on what that long list of ingredients on beauty products really means for your body.

The app has a barcode scanner as well as a search bar to scan or enter specific names of cosmetics, and gives results on a 1-10 scale on carcinogens, developmental and reproductive toxicity, and allergens and immunotoxicities. Think Dirty provides a list of the ingredients on a scale of 1-10 along with an explanation on its rating. There is also a tab that suggests other products made from healthier ingredients, and the option to purchase these from amazon.

I give this app a 4.5 out of 5, because though it is very thorough, there are many products not covered, and many that are listed but not reviewed. I recommend this app to anyone who cares about what they put on their body, because we have nothing if we lose our health. Shop clean, Think Dirty.
