Our Methodology

Transparency is our priority. We want to give you a bit more info on how exactly our ingredient checker works and why you can trust its results.

Our ingredient checker is designed to give you accurate and reliable information, empowering you to make informed decisions about the products you use.

Scientifically-backed ingredient data

We only include ingredient data that's backed by scientific research. We encourage you to check out our sources by heading to the dedicated page for an ingredient if you're interested in learning more.

Detecting ingredient name variations

Our database tracks thousands of ingredient name variations to provide you with the most accurate analysis.

In an ideal world, all manufacturers would follow the INCI standard for ingredient names. Unfortunately this isn't the case, so we've done the work to make sure that we can analyze different variations and mispellings in ingredient names.

Keeping it up-to-date

There's constantly new research surfacing surrounding cosmetic ingredients. Our ingredient checker is kept up-to-date and we regularly update our ingredient database.

SkinSort is an independent company and does not allow brands to influence the information we display about ingredients or products.

Thank you for supporting us by using our site. It helps us remain independent and focus on our goal - providing you with the most accurate information about the ingredients in your products.
