Products are scored from a low of 0 to a high of 10. The higher the rating, the better the product from a health perspective. About GoodGuide: GoodGuide’s mission is to provide consumers with the information they need to make better shopping decisions. We believe that as more consumers choose products that contain ingredients with fewer health concerns, retailers and manufacturers face compelling incentives to make and sell better products. To fulfill our mission, GoodGuide combines manufacturer-provided information about product ingredients with authoritative information on the health effects of chemicals.

  • inaccurate

    i would have given it 0 stars
  • So far can’t find anything

    By That one guy on the left
    Downloaded to check out the app. Scanned what I had in the office. Folgers Coffee, Prince of Peace Organic Oolong Tea, Yogi Kava Stress Relief tea, Daisy Cottage Cheese - “Sorry , no ratings”. So far not impressed.
  • Inaccurate

    By Tdg719
    EWG app is much better! Lists GMOs used in foods, hormones in dairy etc. this one claims everything is safe to use.
  • Nice idea, but not really useable

    By lomeister
    Can’t find most products on my shelf and crashes frequently. Even when the product is found, there is not enough information to know, for example, why a certain organic mustard has ingredients that are “hazardous.”
  • How can every ingredient not be harmful?

    By Boltesian
    I wanted to look around and find why some food items were rated worse than others. A 4 rating white bread had a few chemical ingredients listed as well as high fructose corn syrup. Every ingredient though was listed as “no know health concerns...”. So what’s the bad stuff in this bread then? Hard to have faith in what the ratings are when you can’t discern why some are rated bad.
  • Can be an awesome app.

    This app is very helpful when the product is actually in their database BUT recently I haven’t been able to find a lot of different skincare, body, or hair care products which is a huge let down. PLEASE ADD MORE BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO YOUR DATABASE!
  • Shuts down and no rate

    By Shy'r
    Shuts down when looking up products. So far, they haven't rated anything in my kitchen like cereal, spices, probiotic fiber. So much potential, yet so much failure.
  • Privacy

    By Davescj
    You do not need my email to show me a rating. If I have to sign in with name and password, then I don't need your app.
  • Useless

    By Martinassffhj
    A nice idea, but 80% of products I scanned couldn't be found. Practically useless.
  • Don't trust anything this app tells you.

    By Jersey_Girl18
    Big corporate companies known to be horrible for the environment, participate in animal testing, contain toxins, etc are rated as "good" and get high marks, claiming they're a great buy for you, your family and the environment. It's painfully obvious that this app is sponsored by the huge companies to make themselves look good and scam you into thinking they're products are okay. Very corrupt, please don't trust this app for any decision you make regarding you or your child's health, do your own research and discover the truth.
