Meet The Danish EWG

Well, the cat's out of the bag. Somebody who writes in the native lingo of this country and happens to be an inquisitive and articulate beauty journalist is asking the same kinds of questions I did in this post last year of an organization I have dubbed the Danish EWG.

Thank you Katja of the blog Pudderdåserne (The Powder Tins) for bringing this up. To all of my Danish readers, I heartily recommend checking out this post. And do read the comments below. These are the same toes I stepped on last year in September – the very same toes that dismissed the information provided to her by a scientist as 'having no basis in science' (!)

A Bit About the EWG

The EWG (Environmental Working Group) has been consistently questioned by the scientific community for misleading and misinforming the public about the safety of cosmetics ingredients through – among other things – their 'Skin Deep Database' website.

For an in-depth look at what they're all about, learn more here at this post at Personal Care Truth.

UPDATE: Personal Care Truth has unfortunately closed down their site as of October 2019.

Tak Anette. Jeg er så inderlig træt af at se brug de nøjagtig samme metoder som disse amerikanske 'scaremongers'. Deres skrækkampagne teknikker er usaglige og sår tvivl og kreerer usikkerhed hvor det ikke hører til. ØV!
