Norwegian Consumer Council Hormone Check App

The NCC created an app, Norwegian Consumer Countil Hormone Check, through which consumers can check items for hormone altering chemicals, which major cosmetic manufacturers continue to use. Seeing as the labels of cosmetic products are virtually incomprehensible, how are consumers meant to know what is safe to use and what is not?

All you have to do is scan the barcode, and you'll see if it contains any hormone altering chemicals. You can choose to share it with friends on Facebook to warn them, and report the product. Pretty cool, and although it's in Norwegian, it's easy to see when something is OK, and when it's not. 

Alternatively, you can head over to their Facebook app and just enter the product code or search for the name of the product to find out more information. Handy.
