With the aim to help us make more informed decisions about our purchases, the Think Dirty App provides us with clear, no nonsense details about the ingredients in our cosmetics. Anyone who’s ever looked at the label on our favourite skincare product will know the headache brought on by all the different chemicals and their names, as we try to figure out what they are. Luckily, the Think Dirty App likes to keep things simple.
By using the mobile app to scan products as we shop, we can find out just how toxic each chemical is, as we go through the list of ingredients. The Dirty Meter feature allows us to see just how potentially harmful a particular chemical is, breaking down information in a way that can be easily digested, so we know what to buy and what to avoid.
With over 1,600 brands and 60,000 products to scan, the Think Dirty App has gathered information from reliable sources such as the Government and regulatory agencies, so its accuracy can’t be disputed. To add to that, the app is free! Perfect!
