Sometimes I look things up on EWG site. How can they put some Aveda products on 4 and 5 rating?? This doesnt make any sense to me since Aveda is a clean brand!

EWG is a privately funded non-prof organization. Most of their donations come from the organic food industry. Much of the info on EWG appears to be alarming and has some fear-mongering aspect to it. I take it with a grain of salt.

One website which I find very useful is INCIDecoder dot com. Check them out.

Anyone using, reviewing, making, or selling cosmetics can legally make up their own definition of "clean beauty."

 

A470003, Belle Beauty by Kim Gravel Definabelle Eyeliner & Mascara Kit meets QVC's made up definition. Carmine is listed in the ingredients. It's probably in the Deep Plum shade. Does that meet your definition of "clean"?
