What we did not like

The only thing I don't like in the book is a heavy reliance on to Environmental Working Group's (EWG) cosmetic ingredient and product database Skin Deep. Although very enthused by their initiative at the beginning, I've grown very disturbed by how flawed and biased the group's evaluation process of ingredients is.

Finally, the author recommends products and companies and most of them are big names, with big budgets. It would be nice and fair if sometimes, the author did a research for good products from small companies. There are plenty of companies producing unique and great products around! So why only go for the big names?

Overall Use this book as a valuable guide to green your life, but choose your own brands and products. Be a free green Amer
