What is Skin Deep?
Skin Deep was launched in 2004 by The Environmental Working Group (EWG), an American nonprofit environmental research whose goal is to provide information to protect human health and the environment. EWG’s Skin Deep database aims to give information about personal care and cosmetic products that you purchase and bring into your home. Indeed, for each product, an online profile is created with its potential hazards and health concerns.
The mission of Skin Deep is clear : “We put the power of information in consumers’ hands. When you know what’s in the products you bring into your home and how those chemicals may affect your health and the environment, you can make informed purchasing decisions — and help transform the marketplace.”
How are the products ranked?
All products and ingredients are ranked in Skin Deep according to a score. This score is made of two parts: a hazard score and a data availability score.
- The ingredient hazard score goes from 1-10. It shows knowledge and suspected hazards of ingredients.
|Low hazard||Moderate hazard||High hazard|
- The data availability rating is about the number of scientific studies in the published scientific literature and the number included in the Skin Deep database. This rating measures “how much is known about an ingredient”.
Data availability rating: the scope of ingredient safety data contained in Skin Deep, and the number of studies available in the open scientific literature
Thus, product score is calculated taking both variables into consideration.
Why are Skintifique products top ranked?
Skintifique develops the safest formulations which deliver maximum efficacy and tolerance. Indeed, our products only contain a very limited number of ingredients (between 5 and 13) to minimize risks of skin reactions. These special formulations include only carefully selected ingredients that have proven to be effective and with excellent safety profiles such as glycerin, bisabolol or castor oil. And all our product range is fragrance-free, paraben free, lanolin free, silicone free (dimethicone free), mineral oil free, EDTA free, sulfates free, phthalates free. Thus, they are perfectly designed to bring comfort and relief to people with sensitive, reactive or damaged skin.
All four Skintifique products are among the safest skin care. For instance, the hazard score for all the products is extremely low: 1 for the Cleanser P and for the Hydrating Gel HS Plus and 2 for the Protective Cream HPS and for the Moisturizing Lotion HP.
