About the GoodGuide App: This app includes scientific ratings for thousands of food, personal care and cleaners.

Products are scored from a low of 0 to a high of 10. The higher the rating, the better the product from a health perspective. About GoodGuide: GoodGuide’s mission is to provide consumers with the information they need to make better shopping decisions. We believe that as more consumers choose products that contain ingredients with fewer health concerns, retailers and manufacturers face compelling incentives to make and sell better products. To fulfill our mission, GoodGuide combines manufacturer-provided information about product ingredients with authoritative information on the health effects of chemicals. We rate products so that consumers can have instant access to credible information about products that would be very difficult for anyone to develop on their own. We are a team of scientific experts in product and chemical information and have been engaged in this project for ten years. GoodGuide has grown to become the web’s most comprehensive and credible resource for information about the impact of consumer products on human health.

    This app is supported by large corporations! Has to be.... The all natural products are ranked like they are bad for you and big brand products that contain carcinogenic ingredients are ranked good for you. Read your labels, if you can't pronounce it it's most likely bad for you (unless it's the scientific name).
  • Good idea but

    It is a great idea but when these commercial ones are at the top and have exclusions and smells kinda like endorsements are happening. While truly good brands are brought down for the weirdest reasons. Idk just can't trust anyone now lol

    This app used to show the environmental impact and social responsibility of products. That's why I got it in the first place. Now it's worthless.

    Walmart's Great Value brand got a 10.0 for every single product? Seriously? I question the integrity of this app.

    I like the website along with the app but the functionality just isn't there. Crashes every time. Fix and it'll be a perfect app.

  • Constantly crashing.

    I would love to give this app a try but can never seem to get a chance. Every time I start searching, the app crashes and I love all my work. I'll start typing and - bleep - it shuts down and I'm back to square one. Hopefully this will be fixed because I love the idea of this app and would love to see it working. Not only that, but it does have some glitches. I went to type in foundation and after I had the whole word typed, it said "no results". Odd, right? Since they have makeup categories. But when I backspaced to "founda----" then it shows me results. Only seconds before the app crashed, of course. Love the idea, app needs work. I look forward to an update.
  • If the new ratings weren't bad enough, constant crashes.

    GoodGuide recently updated their rating system that no longer makes assessments based on Environmental and Social practices of companies. These two factors were my main reasons for using GoodGuide. Without them, this is useless to me. This is now less about 'goodness' and more about nutrition. Based on their blog post about the changes, it sounds like I'm in the minority among GoodGuide users. Which is fine. But I'll be deleting this app, removing the site from my bookmarks, and searching for an alternative. I'm pretty sad about this. But I wish the organization well. Also, the app constantly crashes.

    I like it but it crashes to often and it needs more categories.
