The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is doing a great job of tracking chemicals and hazardous toxins in the skin care and cosmetics industry. The industry has long been shifty, keeping the ingredients in their “beauty” products in a dark, murky place, so unaware consumers don’t know the potential risks to their health they are taking by using seemingly benign products.
Thank God for orgs like EWG. They are finally shedding light on the industry and giving consumers the tools to make informed decisions. It’s a great step. Their ingredients database isn’t perfect. There are gaps in the research data, but they are on top of all the common toxic ingredient offenders.
Miracle Salve was just listed in EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database with a “1” rating, which is the best you can get. We’re also in the process of becoming EWG verified. When that happens, we’ll proudly list the badge on our site.
