Think Dirty wants to create a revolution in beauty care by increasing awareness in the potentially toxic chemicals used in cosmetics. 

There are over 80,000 chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products. Of these chemicals, only 20% have been tested, and very few are restricted or banned. Currently there’s no pre-market testing required for most products.

Think Dirty is an iPhone mobile app that has a database of almost 300,000 products. You can scan a barcode or type in the product name. If the database has your product it will rate it from 0-10, 0 being 'clean' and 10 being 'dirty'. You can then view an in-depth ingredient list to make your decision on whether or not to continue using the product. So far, the product has generated over 2 million scans and positive reviews and feedback.
