Have you ever wondered if the products you are using on a daily basis are toxic? This is the question that Max and Matt asked themselves when they thought about creating Dirti.ca.

This web application uses a lean and mobile responsive UI to show the users if the product they are using is toxic. You only have to take a picture of the list of ingredients and the tool will let you know if it’s good or bad and which ingredients are on the blacklist. In addition to let the users know if they made a good choice, the app will display the bad ingredients in a decreasing order of toxicity level.

Is you hair shampoo toxic? I know what I’ll do when I get home!

Team: Grace Scharf, Bashu Naimi-Roy, Tim Zulkarnain
