I discovered Good Guide shortly after I had my Prince. (Wow, can you believe he’s gonna be two next month?! Seems like he just started walking. I can’t believe it!) There were all kinds of reports and studies linking BPA and other chemicals to cancer. I wanted to make sure that I was making my home a safe environment for my entire family. The rating system came in handy for picking the best baby, hair, body and household products.
Good Guide has a team of experts that rate products and the companies that make them on a scale from 1-10 into sub-scores that address health, environment, and social responsibility. These sub-scores are then averaged to provide the overall Good Guide rating. In their 1-10 numeric scale, the best products rate 8 or above and the worst products rate 4 or below.
It’s a great way to make comparisons across the marketplace for the wide variety of cosmetics, beauty items, hair products, and more. You have the ability to filter your choices based on animal welfare, ingredients, organics, and/or labor laws. If you’re looking for curelty-free or vegan products for example, Good Guide will help you find them.
