All Products released by Cafe DAME are Verified by EWG.

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients.

The hazard score of our all products ingredients are 1 to 2. 

A product’s hazard score is not an average of the ingredients’ hazard scores. It is calculated using a weight-of-evidence approach that factors in all of the hazards or health impacts associated with the ingredients. To see details of how our hazard scores are calculated, see the “Hazard Ratings” section of our methodology.
