In my never ending quest to find brands and products that are non-toxic, I was thrilled to learn about the Think Dirty app. Even when you think a product is clean, Think Dirty is able to highlight each and every ingredient so you know which ones are really clean and which ones are toxic. Considering more and more people are demanding truly healthy products, Think Dirty is a breath of fresh air.

Official Launch

Think Dirty was officially launched in the summer of 2013 by Lily Tse. From a family history of cancer, Lily was determined to understand the causes of some cancers, particularly breast cancer. She was shocked to discover that the cosmetics industry is not regulated like the food and drug industries and many products on the market are toxic. Even if products are labeled “natural” or “organic,” there’s not enough transparency to confirm whether or not they really are.

Keyword or Barcode Search

What is great about the Think Dirty app is, you can either search by keyword or by barcode. So far I’ve just used the keyword search, but you can easily type in a barcode or even scan it to discover whether or not a product is clean and take a deeper look at its ingredients.

For example, considering there’s been a lot of controversy with the Tarte brand, I decided to look up Tarte on the app. I was not surprised to find many products in the moderate to serious category of negative, long-term health effects.

Think Dirty,

When I looked up Tarte’s Light’s, Camera, Lashes Mascara, it’s a 5 on the Dirty Meter. Then I clicked on the Ingredients category, which shows me there are 18 ingredients in this mascara, two are moderately “dirty” and the rest are clean.


Then I clicked on the “Our Picks” category, which lists mascaras that are considered “clean,” such as Juice Beauty’s Lash Defining Mascara and Pacifica’s Stellar Gaze Mascara.


The App is Free

Yes, the app is free on the Apple iTunes store, but it’s only available by invite on Google Play.

What’s Missing

Eventually what I would like to see is a link to the top cleanest brands and/or products on the app. Right now, unless you scan a barcode or type in a keyword, you’ll have to do a lot of searching to discover all the products and brands that are listed as non-toxic.

Think Dirty is very much needed in a world surrounded by toxic, chemically-laden brands and products. Instead of feeling helpless and not knowing the truth about all the products we use on an everyday basis, Think Dirty is empowering us to take control of our health. Now you really can look good and feel good too.

    a mí esta medida no me parece tan mala y, de hecho, se aplica en otros países con éxito. Lo que es un poco lamentable es ver como un vez más se saca una ley que parece redactada por banqueros para que entre todos les ayudemos a solucionar sus problemas sin pedir nada a cambio. En cambio cuando millones de ciudadanos españoles tiene problemas con el banco el gobierno no se moviliza.Debate caliente. Qué piensas? 6  4

    Anonymous24 mayo, 2011muy de acuerdo con Savater. y en respuesta a un comentario oido por aqui: no, la respuesta NO es el nacionalismo español, la respuesta es que no haya nacionalISMOS, que las instituciones no se dediquen a legislar sobre los sentimientos de las personas, que eso es cosa de cada uno. esto es lo que hace falta explicar en euskadi, y esto es lo que defiende upyd. un abrazo para las personas de upyd en euskadi.


    The US would take revolution in some form to transform to a peer democracy, mostly for its scale. A more human scale state need not be so necessarily imposing.Israel that isn’t the case. A democracy of 8 million can very well be a peer democracy. It is much moreso than the US is. It is possible for citizens to meet officials walking the street in Israel. Its not in the US. (I did meet Robert Reich in Cambridge once though, when he was Secretary of Labor.)


    kathykattenburg Leonidas, my point is that if the U.S. had taken sides in the aftermath of the election results, Iranians, who DO have a sense of national pride and patriotism, might very well have felt it necessary rally around Ahmadinejad because to do otherwise would be like supporting U.S. intervention.So there's no contradiction in my opinion. As much as I despised former Pres. Bush, if another country was trying to interfere in my country's election results, I would want to put my country's national sovereignty over my opposition to the person who won the election.

    Meireless is only sold so that can Lamps play regularly … lamps need to become unselfish now and leave the responsibility of scoring goals to attacking 4 and maintain his position as it’s crucial in 4-2-3-1 for two defensive midfielders to stay and protect the back four which becomes back 3 when a wing back goes up .. else we will always be beaten when facing top sides… ivanovic should also curb the attacking instinct and moses should be played as RWReply

    Bom dia, P. Pablo. Também a mim a cidade de Jerusalém me enche de emoção. Dela cada um de nós, sobretudo cristãos, pode dizer: Esta é a minha Cidade. Com efeito foi nela que o Senhor Jesus pelo seu sangue derramado consumou a Obra da Redenção a favor de todos os homens. Aproveita respirar bem fundo a atmosfera divina, que nesta Cidade Santa se pode experimentar! Dou também graças a Deus pela dádiva do Cardeal Carlo Maria Martini à Igreja deste tempo.

    It looks scary , but is actually a harmless wolf spider. That is even a scary name, isn't it??? We had lots of them in Charleston. The one thing that I do NOT suggest doing is smashing it. They carry their eggs/babies on their back. On two different occasions, I forced ( and I do mean force as he is screaming that it is bigger than his shoe!) him to kill them, and hundreds of babies go scurrying off! He had to get the leaf blower to blow them out of the garage!

    Daniel forgot to mention that the $100m will almost certainly be from middle eastern oil–and that this is stolen money due to the nationalization of infrastructure built by western companies. To adopt this criticism, the US needs to change it's policy and no longer accept nationalization of western assets–particularly when the assets underwrite attacks on the west.Also the main organizer has links to terrorism, and shouldn't even be allowed into this country (except in a prison cell).

Also American Intercontinental University Online offers a Bachelors of Business Administration with a overall program element of 180 units and a tariff of $30,560.

It’s significant merely because by not always accomplishing that, all other moves which you will choose to adopt to improve your credit rating will not be effective. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
