What does it mean to be EWG verified?

To achieve the highest EWG Rating - EWG Verified, brands must comply and exceed the highest safety standards as regulated by the EWG. This verification process includes monitoring and analysis of all personal care products using the strictest of standards in avoiding EWG ingredients of concern, providing full transparency and using good manufacturing practices. 

EWG Verified Products Meet the Following Safety Standards

  • Products cannot contain any ingredients on EWG's "Unacceptable" list, meaning ingredients with health, ecotoxicity and/or contamination concerns.
  • Products cannot contain any ingredients on EWG's "Restricted" list, which do not meet the restriction set by authoritative bodies and industry institutions.
  • Products must follow standard ingredient naming guidelines.
  • Products must fully disclose all ingredients on the label, including ingredients used in fragrance.
  • Product manufacturers must develop and follow current good manufacturing practices.
  • Products must follow the European Union's requirements for labeling fragrance allergens.
  • Products must follow the European Union's labeling guidelines for nanomaterials used in cosmetics.
  • Product labels must indicate an expiration date or a "period of time after opening.
  • Commit to submitting all reports of product problems or serious adverse events to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and to EWG.
  • Agree that EWG has the right to perform random product testing to ensure that all products meet the provisions outlined in EWG's Criteria

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) ratings are based on this hazard score key. 

EWG Hazard Score Key Explained

EWG Rated vs. EWG Verified

EWG Verified is the highest safety score a product can receive. At Think, we have several personal care products that are fully EWG Verified. An EWG Top Rating score of 1 or 2 (considered by the EWG to be the lowest hazard) is the next safest option. Top rated EWG products are considerably safer than something that is rated moderate or high hazard.
