Balancing Clean Beauty With Science on Greatist
With lots of news recently about problems caused by “everywhere chemicals” like BPA and phthalates, how do we know which beauty products are the right ones for us.
Greatist.com decided to look at how people could find the right balance between healthy products and healthy prices too.
For example, you can look at the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Skin Deep database, which rates almost 70,000 products based on their ingredients. Many products have yet to be completely tested for instance. You could also ask a dermatologist, such as Dr. Michele Green, M.D.
Dr. Green notes that some patients do feel more comfortable when they mix up their own DIY skin care — “You know exactly what’s being put into them” with advice from a dermatologist.
