But honestly, who has the time to research all these ingredients while shopping? Look at your cosmetic products; how many of the listed ingredients do you know?

The Yuka app is a convenient and fast way to make conscious decisions while shopping for cosmetics and groceries.

How do you use the Yuka app?
The Yuka app is pretty simple to use. Once the app is downloaded on your phone, simply open the app, tap on scan, and point that at the barcode on the products you want to know more about. At a quick glance, the Yuka app shows a color coding - red is bad, orange is poor, and green is good - whether the product is bad for your health.
How do the Yuka ratings work?
The Yuka rating system for food and cosmetic products is based on three objective factors: 60% is nutritional quality, 30% is presence of harmful additives, and 30% is whether the product is organic. After you scan the barcodes on your cosmetic product, the rating will be based on three colors - red is bad, orange is poor, and green is good. The green ranges from 75 to 100 percent for dark green, 50 to 75 percent for lighter green, 20 to 50 percent for orange, and 0 to 20 percent for orange. There is also a breakdown that explains precisely what the score means by describing why as well as listing specifically each ingredient that affected the score and its purpose. The Yuka app then provides immediate suggestions for safer alternative products. While most people understand the value of a balanced diet, many of us do not know how our cosmetic products affect our health. The Yuka app helps us make better decisions about the products we use on our bodies and choose the safest available products. If you have the Yuka app, scan any of your Kushae products to learn more about our ingredients. We promise you will not be disappointed!
