Introduction of cosmetic product certification
✨ EWG cosmetics verification
EWG stands for Environmental Working Group and is one of the most influential nonprofit environmental movement groups in the United States. EWG is an organization that mainly conducts education and enlightenment activities to avoid harmful ingredients and toxic substances and to select the right and safe products. Since EWG does not receive any external pressure or sponsorship from companies or governments, it provides fair and objective information more than any other organization.
EWG conducts research on human health and environment in the fields of food, energy, and agriculture, and provides a database on its ingredients and safety, especially in relation to cosmetics. Product safety ratings are given based on the scores given by EWG's evaluation and verification, and can be used in personal hygiene products and cosmetics.

EWG aims to enable people to live healthier lives in healthier environments. EWG tracks the safety of chemicals, enabling producers to promote the safety of ingredients, promote transparency and promote sales, and enable consumers to recognize risks and pursue safety.
The rating is based on the Skin Deep database operated by EWG, and this data is based on safety research data published by research groups around the world.
Available in red, yellow or green grades depending on the ingredient safety score, of which green is the product that meets the most stringent criteria. ✧ Grade 1~2: Green

Necessity of EWG verification
Since the EWG verification began, manufacturers have been making healthier and safer products. Manufacturers have been considering increasing cancer rates and allergies. EWG recognizes products that meet EWG's most stringent standards for health. This means there are no chemicals of concern to EWG, which means complete transparency. The EWG Approval Mark means a sign of trust.
With thousands of consumer products on the market, it is difficult to know which products are safer and healthier. When a product is marked with the EWG mark, you can ensure that it is free of EWG's chemicals and meets the most stringent standards for health.
