Think Dirty App Helps You Get Clean
With so much focus these days on eating healthy, especially on social media sites like Instagram, it’s sometimes difficult to remember that what you use on your body is just as important as what you eat.
As your largest organ, your skin absorbs almost 60% of what you put on it. This includes makeup and body care products like lotion, cleansers and masks. Since so many of your products have substantial ingredient lists, it can be difficult to take stock of what exactly is going into your body. This is a pretty scary thought, considering some of those things can actually be toxic to you!
Let us introduce you to the Think Dirty app. This ingenious app enables you to scan your beauty product’s bar codes to come up with what is called a ‘dirty rating.’ The rating is on a scale from 0-10, with 10 being a good indicator of harmful ingredients, and products are listed in one of three categories: carcinogenicity, development and reproductive toxicity, and allergenicity and immunotoxicity.
