Have you heard of the Think Dirty app? I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love it because it is so easy to use and helps me be more educated about what I am putting on my body. But I hate it…well, because it opens my eyes to what I am putting on my body and sometimes I don’t want to think about it. It’s easier to not think about it. Doing that will catch up with me though.
For those of you that don’t know what it is… The Think Dirty app is “an independent product-comparison app for personal and skincare products. It educates consumers about the potential toxic ingredients and empowers consumers to make healthy and safe choices.”
How it works is you can scan the barcode of the products you use and see how they rate from 0-10. 0 being totally clean and safe and 10 being toxic. It is surprising and frustrating how many common products are 9s and 10s.
I started using this app a couple of year ago when I was wanting to have a baby. As I was checking all the personal products that I use I was shocked to find how toxic several of them were and a few of them showed up as having possible effects on your reproductivity. That was a wake up call to me.
There have been many times that you could find me in the aisle at Target ready to pull my hair out because I had been through so many products and couldn’t find one below a 5. It would frustrate me that even the ones that market themselves as more “natural” were still high in toxicity. It made me want to throw my hands up and not worry about it.
I have found shampoo and conditioner that I like that is non-toxic. I love Thieves cleaner for the house. The jury is still out on natural deodorant (please tell me if you have found one you love). But finding a simple, non-toxic, affordable skincare regimen has felt overwhelming to me. Below is a picture of the results of scanning my current skincare product. Yikes!
I was so excited when a couple of days ago my wellness company announced the launch of a new skin care product! Plexus is all about products that get you healthy from the inside out, so I knew if they were producing a skin care product that it would non-toxic. When I heard how simple it was (just 2 steps) I knew this was what I had been looking for. And then when I saw the results of the testers I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
