Toxic shampoo? EWG reports.

Our friends over at Environmental Working Group have just released Skin Deep, yet another in their fantastic series of reports that tease the hidden environmental stories out of large databases.

This time, they assessed the ingredients of more than 7500 personal care products, and evaluated them against government, industry, and academic lists of known and suspected chemical health hazards.

EWG presents both its analysis, as well as a [searchable database]( of products with their hazard scores, so you can make more informed choices.

This is a fantastic example of a strategy that combines both policy advocacy and consumer action. Toxics groups around the country should pick up on this as a resource they can deliver to their audiences.
