How are products scored for Clean Label Project’s Product Ratings?

Our third-party laboratory partner blind tests products for a list of 130 toxins and contaminants, including heavy metals, antibiotics, BPA/BPS (plasticizers) and pesticide-residues that are not identified on labels but are prevalent in food and consumer products. We also factor in the good stuff- like ingredient quality. The products are then published on the Product Ratings using a five-star rating system based on how they perform across in comparison to the rest of the industry category. All of this information is wrapped up to represent the overall product score.
