You will find an “overall product hazard” score in all of my beauty product reviews.
What is overall product hazard score? Its the score based on WEG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database and my own research of ingredients.
“EWG’s Skin Deep database gives you practical solutions to protect yourself and your family from everyday exposures to chemicals. Hazard ratings within Skin Deep are shown as low, moderate, or high concern categories, with numeric rankings spanning those categories that range from 1 (low concern) to 10 (high concern).”
Hazard score key: 🚥
- 1-2: Low hazard
- 3-6: Moderate hazard
- 7-10: High hazard
How do I get an overall product hazard score? I research all the ingredients and their individual hazard scores, then I total up all of the scores and devide the result with the number of all the ingredients.
