EWG’s Skin Deep ingredient rating system
EWG believes that it is possible to change the environment of consumer goods by providing consumers with the right information about the ingredients of cosmetics.
EWG Skin Deep puts the power of information in consumers’ hands. First, the data on ingredients is collected from research institutes; then, each ingredient’s safety level is assessed by grading from 1 to 10; lastly, objective information is provided to the consumer in an intuitive way.

 

EWG VERIFIED™ product certification is very strict

Even if cosmetics are made by using safe ingredients in accordance with EWG’s Skin Deep, to get EWG VERIFIED™ certification, the following additional requirements must be met:

  1. The ingredients, which haven’t been thoroughly checked against hazardous substances by scientists, cannot be used even if they have received the green score within the range of 1-2.
  2. Even if certain ingredients are found to be safe, it is necessary to analyze the test report to check the possibility of the existence of any potential harmful substances that exceed the standard level.
  3. Even if raw materials are proven to be safe, manufacturing facility should comply with the EWG’s requirements to prevent any possibility of creating harmful substances during the manufacturing process.
