Executive Summary

Environmental Working Group's updated "Skin Deep" report includes "new, interactive personal care product safety guide," advocacy group announces Oct. 17. Database comprises approximately 14,000 products and 1,000 brands, and can be searched by brand safety rating, product and product category, according to EWG, which notes information was compiled from "a core of 37 toxicity and regulatory databases."
