Our Methodology


In deciding what Companies and Products to feature on SweetScore, we use our own unique methodology and consider a variety of factors relevant to the particular product and company. 

 

Our methodology is designed to help bring you:

 

    • Products that are designed with your wellness and the wellness of the planet in mind), according to the companies that make them (for instance, personal care products free from chemicals that may be bad for the environment or bad for your health);

    • Products that are made by companies that show leadership on sustainability and human rights (for instance, companies that establish carbon reduction targets and companies that promote an inclusive, supportive environment for customers and team members); and

    • Products that are made in Countries that show leadership on sustainability and human rights (by, for instance, countries that have implemented environmental protection laws, laws protecting the rights of all equally, including women and members of the LGTBQ+ community, and laws protecting freedom of speech and freedom of association).

 

The data we draw from to make our recommendations comes from publicly available information, information obtained directly from companies, and information provided in third party assessments, including studies funded by the United Nations and public interest groups like Transparency International, and the Human Rights Campaign.

 

Wellness, sustainability and human rights issues are complicated.  We encourage you to do your own research, and hope our Company and Product listings will help you in that.
