Your Personal Guide to Safe Cosmetics
CosmEthics helps people make smart product choices tailored to individual needs. Our app allows users to scan the product’s bar code, and cross-references it with our default settings (parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers). You can then read more about these ingredients through the Wikipedia links on the product page. Also the research articles linked with the default alerts are accessible within the app.
Personalized for You
CosmEthics has three default alerts, which are linked to research articles and an abstract (overview of research on the hazard ingredient). You will see a red traffic light appear next to the ingredient name, if the product contains an ingredient from the following alert groups:

CosmEthics offers ready-made lists for iPhone users. They can be added as a full list in the My Alerts section by clicking on “Add new alert”.
Android users can add these ingredients to their Personal Alerts manually (typing one INCI name at a time).

- Plastics (16 ingredients)
