Yuka - Food & Cosmetic scanner app reviews

  • Thankful 5/5

    By Gun.21
    Showing support anyway I can ! Such a wonderful app
  • Changed my life 5/5

    By e.lla.ma
    I do my best to be conscious of what i eat and the products i use on my body with the wage i make, but i was absolutely astounded to see how terrible a lot of it still was. we really have no idea what is going into our carts and even if they label ingredients no one is going to spend hours typing in names they can’t pronounce let alone researching the effects they have on us. this app has indefinitely changed my life and my perspective on food and skin care to a whole new level. i’m sharing it with everyone i know because everyone has a right to make educated choices for themselves so that one day companies can change how they make their products. the people behind this app are making a huge difference in the world one item at a time and my partner and i could not be more grateful for their tireless work. thank you a thousand times over. this app means more than you know.
  • Best! 5/5

    By TG676
    Best app ever! I use it for everything from groceries to cosmetics! Keep up the good work!
  • Game Changer! 5/5

    By Agmoonpie
    I have recommended this app to everyone I know. I never realized how bad so many things we bought were for our health! I will not buy a product without scanning or searching for it first. So grateful for the developers of this great app.
  • Love It 5/5

    By Rima412
    Food packaging and labels can be misleading. You think you’re eating something healthy when you’re not. This app allows you see truth about the food you buy and provides recommendations for better choices. I’m glad I found it.
  • A huge thank you to the Developers 5/5

    By marvinpoli
    You guys are amazing! Just a big thank you for putting your own personal time for making such an important app that actually gives accurate nutritional value to food products that people think are “healthy”, even though most of them are not harmful, its a huge help for people starting their journey to a healthy diet and more!
  • Not very accurate 3/5

    By whydonineedtotypeanythinghere
    This app has a great design and is easy to use. I love scanning things around the grocery store or around my bathroom, but I find several things very annoying. There are often duplicates of the same exact product and many duplicates that have wildly different ratings - each with different lists of ingredients. One is rated Poor and another Excellent. How is that helpful? I find that the “ingredients scanner” camera feature is horribly inaccurate and doesn’t always pick up/ include what’s really listed (Ingredients can easily be found by searching for the product listed online, how is this not integrated to fix the discrepancies?). Duplicates don’t get flagged and corrected unless you complain - Why isn’t this more automated or at least consistently looked out for? Certain ingredients like Talc and Fragrance (Parfum) are listed as healthy when they are known to have caveats and potentially cause harm. Because of it’s flaws I can’t trust much of what this app tells me which is such a headache. PLEASE consider finding smarter technology or finding a way to hire more people to keep everything accurate.

    Download this app and start scanning! Trust me you will not regret it.
  • BEST APP EVER!!!! 5/5

    By capitalonesucks357
  • I can Wish I had this Sooner! 5/5

    By PinkDemonz
    I absolutely love this app. I’m so cautious about what I buy my kids and what they use on the daily to keep them from hazardous materials. I even try to buy organic foods and cosmetics with no added ingredients just to be on the safe side. And Yuka helps me even more with that. There are so many products that I thought were safe that actually weren’t. And Yuka easily tells you all the hazardous and dangerous ingredients in our day to day items. It even recommends safer alternatives which is a plus! I’ll definitely be using this alongside all my future shopping adventures.

    By MrKastle
    Excellent app to scan to see the right foods to eat. It even gives you recommendations if you scan a “bad” nutrition item. Simple easy to use just need email and make your own password.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By _NataliaHills_
    This app transformed my life :) I went through my whole bathroom, pantry and fridge, and got rid of 70% of what I was using and putting on my face and inside my body. So eye-opening - how many hazardous ingredients have all those products we use to buy. Shopping process now changed completely - I scan every single thing and only buy what’s good for me and my body. I paid for a yearly subscription and it’s such a good value. What a great app!

  • Love this app 5/5

    By Seachelle124
    I’ve never cared enough about an app to take the time to rate it. I love this app. It’s a fantastic tool to have in my pocket. A friend told me about it and I downloaded it as soon as I got home. I scanned so many things that I use and was absolutely shocked on some. I now check product barcodes at the store so I know if it’s a good buy or not. I had been questioning my bargain shampoo lately because my hair was coming out like crazy. Yea.. it rated terribly. I love the suggestions because it recommends products I may have never even thought of before. Thank you so much for this app. I know I will have a healthier life because of it. Yuka takes the guesswork &/or research out completely and gives you exactly what you need to know in less than a second.
  • Information I need 5/5

    By Zimrud
    I’m just using this app for the last two weeks, but feeling like it is feeling a need I’ve had for sometime. I love scanning the barcodes and finding a better alternative. Even items like tortillas, which we eat a lot of in the southwest of the United States, dairy and their content preservatives and nutritional value. Yuka has brought this information to me – to my fingertips!
  • Amazing 5/5

    By kklmconnell
    This is the most important app out there!
  • Yuka is a Great good checkin source 5/5

    By sharonmac2
    I love this APP it’s easy to use and wow I’m surprised at the number of things I have purchased are bad! Also love your substitutes to know what is best to purchase. thank you so much for coming up with such a healthy helper app.
  • Well Thought Out App 5/5

    By Not a Uniquilo Shopper
    I couldn’t be happier with this app. It is so well thought out from a very realistic perspective. Before being introduced to this app from an Ulta employee, I never realized how many toxins were in the make up of various products. It is no wonder why cancer & other health issues are so prevalent. As a consumer with no scientific degree or medical knowledge this is such a User Friendly app that is not only comprehensive, but goes to the next level of recommending better products or food items & then is also gives you a history of what items you have scanned for your own personal reference. I can’t say enough positive things about YUKA!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • Amazing!!!! 5/5

    By WannaTango
    This is my first app review…because Yuka deserves it!! I started using Yuka and it immediately improved my quality of life. I’ve never had a easy way to identify good vs bad food. Its also fun to scan items! You’d be surprised what foods you find are terrible for you. Specifically, letting me know if there are hazardous ingredients included. I hope apps like Yuka(and the people behind it) help push companies to include a higher standard of ingredients in their food. Just because they are allowed to put hazardous ingredients in their food…doesn’t mean they should! And not just food, wait till you start scanning the soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. you use! You’ll find out quick the major brands are having you apply toxic ingredients to your body daily! Yuka Team – thanks for your hard work. Please stay true to your mission and never stray away from reporting the truth about ingredients included in food! What you are doing is important!
  • Lemme get one thing straight 3/5

    By HappyReviewer777
    So this app makes me feel like it’s bashing all the other tasty brands. Probably didn’t get sponsored either. I dunno. It’s a good app, but the putting down of other products.. maybe they aren’t. I just had a revelation. Forget what I said.
  • mammastowe 5/5

    By StoweMamma
    Seriously Thankful to be able to educate myself on products quality prior to purchasing them! And FDA approves all these dangerous ingredients, they are a joke.
  • Concerning 1/5

    By a_aronnn
    I have scanned absolutely everything in my house & I was surprised by the readings, but one week it’ll say something’s good or excellent, then I’ll check maybe a week or so later & see that it has changed to either bad or poor. Explanation? A_aronnn
  • Top 5 apps ever! 5/5

    By Young Fah
    This app was needed years ago
  • Highly recommend 5/5

    By kdp12344
    I had a really hard time grocery shopping with now knowing what’s in our foods. This makes life SO much easier!! I won’t shop without it.
  • Beyond helpful! 5/5

    By HappyUser20220922
    My daughter introduced me to this app on Saturday. By Tuesday I had changed my moisturizer, my shampoo, my sunscreen, and the chocolate snacks and the salty snacks I was eating. This was definitely a life-style changing app to find, and I don’t think I would have ever believed that I would say that about any app.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Mommy Vero
    Shared this with my family. I like that it gives you detailed information about additives in food. If you scan something that’s flagged as bad it gives recommendations for healthier alternative.
  • Life Changer 5/5

    By VeenBean94
    God bless whoever created this app I have shared with my family and friends! This app has changed my life!!!
  • Yuka is wonderful 5/5

    By KWSPgH
    I have scanned many things including a Sams Club Members Mark product and the results were given. There has been only one occasion where a product was not rated and in their system but I already knew I should be eating it anyway!! Please Yuka keep up the good work! And thank you for allowing easy access to nutritional information!

    By Pres.vw
    I normally don’t write a review, but I love this app. As someone with Celiac and other dietary issues, this app is a game changer!! I try and be so careful with what I eat and put on my skin, so Yuka is quite handy. 10/10!
  • Healthy choices 5/5

    By shortcake91
    I finally have an app that helps me really know what is in my food! Being able to read about the additives in food I’m buying is what I’ve been looking for, because not buying something for not understanding the ingredients list wasn’t good enough. Thank you for making this app and I’m so glad to say that I use it almost daily.
  • Great great great. Thankful for this app 4/5

    By DomTheeCreator
    It really is a great app & I am so happy that they came up with this. Thank you guys. My only request would be that maybe give some information on all of the good ingredients along with the hazards of the bad ingredients. I’d like to know why this is good ingredient for me vs only knowing why an ingredient bad for me. And also maybe what’s good for someone else it may not particularly be the best for me and my agenda. If that makes sense.¿
  • Best app ever 5/5

    By jjessyjjess
    Thank you so much for this app ! It’s a GAME CHANGER at the grocery store. You guys that invented that are good human ❣️
  • Keeping This Short and Simple 5/5

    By lexi lee rae
    Yuka is a fantastic app that has given me the information to make sensible and informed choices. Regarding beauty products it will list the chemical and what it is known to effect. I then can make an informed decision on if that is a chemical I want to stay away from or if I want to take a chance on it. It really helps to educate and gives us as users a chance to make the best choice for ourselves.

  • The BEST app 5/5

    By BESTYeager
    I recommend this app to everyone who wants what’s best for their body.
  • Please fix this issue :) 4/5

    By Jamm265
    I purchased the app for the search feature but when searching for a specific product, for example the rare beauty liquid touch brightening concealer, 25+ reviews come up for the same exact product but they all have different ratings so I don’t know which is correct. This happens quiet often unfortunately so I hope it can get fixed :)
  • 5 Stars 5/5

    I normally do not write a review but this app is absolutely amazing, please keep up the amazing work you guys do at Yuka (Five star all the way for me) thanks!
  • Very helpful app 5/5

    By Butterflyfree66
    So glad for this I have a small bag full of lotion and body spray and hair products and cosmetics that are going bye-bye. Happy to know I have some excellent and good products to keep.
  • Needs a minor fix 4/5

    By Thatgirl220
    I love this app. It has helped me tremendously in making good choices about what I buy, especially being plant-based. My only complaint is when I need to add a product. The app wants me to take a picture of the nutrition label as well as the ingredients. Not all boxes and labels look the same and when I go to take a picture the app creates a little square where you are supposed to fit the labels in. The bad part is sometimes the square doesn’t recognize the actual size of the list of ingredients or the nutrition label. You can’t change the square or adjust the photo so 9 times out of 10 I can’t get an accurate picture. It’s just a portion of the actual label. Super frustrating when trying to add new products. Outside of that, I love the app. Hopefully that makes sense and somehow can be fixed in the future.
  • Provides Essential Information 5/5

    By Doc Kirtikar
    I have had this app for less than 24 hours, and have scanned everything in my entire house, plus what I ate at work today. In America, I understand we have the loosest laws when it comes to what we ingest and put on our body. I’m somebody who has auto-immune diseases and skin hyper-reactivity. For years I’ve been trying to switch soaps, lotions, body washes etc. trying to figure out what is causing break outs. Dermatologists have even recommended lotions that score 10/100 on this app, and the extra information provided on why is just icing on the cake. I’ve told all my friends about this app already. Honestly, I think it will help solve all of the issues I’m currently dealing with, and lead to a cleaner/healthier lifestyle. The information provided from this app is essential information that should all be known to the public when buying certain products. I’m glad there is finally a way for people to easily get the information and understand. I’m moving to Japan for the next 3 years, for work, and wonder if this app will work over there.
