Beauty begins on the inside, check out our post on The Top 5 Foods For Amazing Skin.

This article ranks the world’s leading cosmetic companies. The hazard score range is based on all the products listed on Skin Deep, with 10 being the most hazardous, and 0 being the least. Products with the lowest hazard are those with a score of 0-2, and the number in parentheses is that product’s score. Click the product to view its report on Skin Deep. To view individual product scores not listed here, go there and search the product name. Some of the companies listed encompass other brands (such as Estée Lauder, which also makes MAC, for example), but I am only listing products with the company’s brand name here.
