CreamScan works hard to ensure the accuracy of the information it provides throughout Services. However, we rely solely on data obtained about product ingredient lists, product names from many sources, therefore we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information or any analysis that uses such information.

Any information and descriptions of products by CreamScan, represent the sole views and opinions of CreamScan and are not intended to malign any organization, company, or individual. Any product reviews or testimonials posted by a user of CreamScan represent the views and opinions of that user and not of CreamScan.

At CreamScan, we strive to provide an unbiased viewpoint and science-based approach in rating cosmetic products (our “Product Ratings”). A Product Rating is composed, in part, of each product’s individual ingredient scores (“Ingredient Scores”). An Ingredient Score is our assigned value of the concentration of an ingredient within a product. Unless explicitly stated [via a “Verified” icon], Ingredient Scores do not represent the actual concentration of any ingredient within a product and are only intended to be used for informational purposes to explain a Product Rating. In assessing Ingredient Scores and formulating Product Ratings, we may obtain information from a variety of sources, including from product packaging and labels, manufacturer websites, peer-reviewed scientific papers, and data obtained from various governmental and non-governmental organizations. For more information on our methodology, please see Our Science.

Ingredient Scores and Product Ratings are based on the best information available to us at the time of publishing. However, this information is subject to change. For example, a scientific study may reveal new information about an ingredient or a manufacturer might update the ingredient list for a product. As such, any Ingredient Scores, Product Ratings, including product descriptions (including “rich in antioxidants”), scores, ratings (including moisturizing rating, occlusivity, and humectancy), functions, origins, recommendations to use or not use a product or to use or not use a product in combination with another product, as well as tags such as “oil-free”, “paraben-free” and similar, represent the opinions of CreamScan and should not be considered a factual representation or warranty about a product or manufacturer. Product Ratings do not imply standards or grades of purity. A Product Rating does not imply that a product is suitable for you and a low Product Rating does not imply that a product should not be used. The suitability of any ingredient, as a component of a finished cosmetic product or for any other purpose, is the sole responsibility of the user. We encourage you to contact the cosmetic product manufacturer with questions related to a product or its ingredients. Unless explicitly stated, CreamScan does not endorse any manufacturer or product. CreamScan disclaims all liability to you or any third-party arising from or related to the information found on CreamScan, including but not limited to any Ingredient Scores, Product Ratings, descriptions, or reviews by CreamScan or any third-party.
