Spread kindness and share this product


The card opens up to reveal 3 handy lists:

  • Contentious Ingredients Found in Cosmetics
  • Contentious E-codes and Additives found in Food
  • A Safe E-code list

The lists are not exhaustive but are a great reference to check the safety and "greenness" of a product you are considering buying.

We want to give you BACK THE POWER to know what it is that you are bringing into your homes and our Earth.

Very useful

I paid for 20 of these to give them to family and friends and I only received one. I assume they thought it was an accident. But it was very imformative anyway

The best! Always in my hand when buying new products

It's nice to know what is safe and what is harmful. Some items you buy have such a long list of ingredients, and you never even know what it really is...
17/09/2019, By S
Great reference that's compact to take along anywhere
28/08/2019, By Sam
Very handy guide, small enough to carry around in my purse and check while out shopping.
08/07/2019, By Jessie
Quite disappointed as this was not included in my order and I was really looking forward to getting it in order to try shop a little safer...
Great idea but only if you actually receive it.
06/07/2019, By Chelle
Even although I ordered and paid for these (even although its mere cents), I have not received the pocket guides with my order.
I am disappointed as I ordered a few to give to family and friends.
27/05/2019, By Riana
Thank you for this very handy pocket guide. An improvement that I believe would perfect it, is if it can be provided in a small, sturdy plastic cover, that would protect it while in one's purse. The regular "into and out of" the purse will soon chafe its folds, blurring the words there and eventually lead to the card falling apart. That would be piece of plastic that would stay in one's purse, and not easily land on a waste pile!
27/05/2019, By Tiana
This was the second time that I included this to my order, but I still haven't received one, I was really looking forward to be able to use it.
Maybe just say if it's out of stock.
03/05/2019, By Amiena
I ordered 2 of these and have not received it with the rest of my order :(
