Behind the Rating

  • Human Health Impacts
    Human Health Impacts
    This component of GoodGuide’s rating system evaluates the potential impacts of a product on human health. It incorporates a screening-level hazard assessment or nutritional evaluation, as well as other relevant indicators, like the regulatory status of ingredients. If ingredients pose potential health risks or have limited nutritional value, a product's score is lowered. If a product lacks the data needed to conduct a health evaluation, its score is also lowered to provide an incentive for manufacturers to disclose better information.

      Level of Health Concern of Ingredients
      To assign a health hazard score to a product, GoodGuide counts the number of its ingredients that are categorized as low, medium or high concern. Ingredients are placed into these categories based on their number of recognized and suspected health effects, their relative toxic potency, whether they are frequently detected in humans, and whether the basic toxicity testing needed to assess chemical safety has been conducted.

Tova Eggerstedt | January 05, 2017

Bought out of desperation for some decent chapstick to help with dry lips. Absolutely horrible smell. Within two days, had red burning rashes around my lips. Would have thrown out for the smell alone, but rashes and burning lips made the choice to toss out even easier. Would never buy again.
