Think Dirty: Ever heard of Triclosan? How about Tetrasodium EDTA? What’s that? These chemicals could be lurking in your medicine cabinet or your makeup drawer, and the app Think Dirty wants you to know about them.Think Dirty educates consumers about the ingredients in the health and beauty products they have actually purchased or are thinking about purchasing. After you snap a photo of a beauty product’s barcode in the app, the “Dirty Meter” measures the product on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 meaning “clean,” or least toxic, and 10 meaning “dirty,” or most toxic. The app helps break down foreign-sounding chemical ingredients to empower you as a consumer. Currently available for iPhone only.
