SKINNINJA APP (SkinNinja.com): Driven by the Founder’s own battle with Skin Cancer, Jo Osborne has created a free app that enables consumers to discover what health concerns (such as Contact Allergens and Carcinogens) are in our skincare, cosmetics and personal care products.
“There was no simple way for me to avoid cancer-causing ingredients in my skincare. Even if it’s just a small amount, I’m entitled to know about it, so I built my own solution.”
SkinNinja matches world leading expert evidence (including The International Agency for Research on Cancer and The World Allergy Organisation ), to over 200k ingredients, across 800k products. The UK’s most comprehensive database (and growing).
We believe that health information should be a right, not a privilege. It should be transparent and honest – and available to everyone, for free.
The Founder, Jo Osborne thinks about that every time she buys a skincare product:
“Every time I spend money I am casting a vote for how I want companies to treat me. Right now, I am telling companies that it is okay for them to put a list of ingredients on the back of a product that I don’t understand. It isn’t.”
And so SkinNinja was born.
How it works – simply download the app, scan a barcode and:
1. Discover the truth. The product is either free from or contains suspected or known health risks – green, amber, red
2. Learn what the science says. Drill down to individual ingredients – find out what the experts think
3. Switch to a healthier alternative product – using SkinNinja’s proprietary technology
For the first time, a UK platform is exposing the health risks contained in our everyday products and putting the power back into consumers’ hands.
Now, we all have access to transparent, unbiased health information and can make our own purchase decisions – for ourselves. Without the BS.
