There seems to be conflicting information reviewed on this site. For example, propylene glycol is listed as a medium health concern in products such as physicians formula aquawear mascara yet this chemical is also in neutrogena's healthy lengths waterproof mascara but is not flagged by this site. Physicians formula mascara is given a 4 health rating whereas the Neutrogena product is given a 10 (indicating no health concerns). I found other discrepancies as well. The Sephora Collection Express Nail polish remover is give and 10 and 6 rating for the same product. The only difference I see is the size of the product.
This leads me to believe this site can't be trusted to give reliable information. Or am I reading the ratings wrong?

Another example of the inconsistencies is the rating for CVS Cortisone 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream. This is given a 10 rating yet the ingredients on the CVS site lists this product ingredients as having propylene glycol (a medium health concern according to this site) and also containing propylparaben. This is not mentioned at all in Good Guide's rating of this product. What gives?
Active Ingredient: Hydrocortisone (1%). Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Vera Concentrate, Cetyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Isopropyl Myristate, Methylparaben, Polyoxyl 40 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Sodium Citrate, Sorbic Acid, Sorbitan Monostearate, Stearyl Alcohol and White Wax.
I still have not received a response but I'm not surprised considering how unprofessional I found this site to be. I guess they've run out of excuses on why they are misleading the public with their inaccurate and biased information. I guess the companies that pay them the most will get the best ratings. This site is such a joke as I find mistake after mistake when doing my own research without much effort I might add. So imagine how much effort Good Guide puts in when they post such garbage. The excuse can't be it was just an error as you are advising people of products that can, if they followed your flawed advice, have potentially have harmful health effects. Imagine if my doctor said oops I had an incomplete listing so I couldn't give you an accurate diagnosis. I will steer clear of this site and advise everyone I know to do the same.
