Oilogic Essential Oil Roll-Ons(Dallas, TX) – Oilogic Essential Oil Care is leading the way in children’s health and safety by pioneering the revolutionary new MADE SAFETM (Made with Safe Ingredients) seal for all of its Essential Oil Roll-Ons. Products with the MADE SAFE emblem are available in stores and on the company’s website starting today. As the first human health certification to apply to all consumer products, the MADE SAFE seal empowers parents to easily find and purchase items that have been screened for known toxic chemicals, so that for the first time, they know what’s acceptable to use with their babies and in their homes.

“We really wanted to provide moms with natural comforts for their children’s common troubles. We’re so proud to be a pioneer in the toddler and kids essential oil category! The benefits of essential oils are boundless, so it was our mission as moms to make them safe for children to use,” Co-founder of Oilogic, Jordan Morrow says.

The MADE SAFE seal is an independent third-party verification that screens products for known toxic chemicals harmful to human health. Products carrying this seal have undergone rigorous ingredient screening to ensure products don’t contain known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, reproductive toxins, neurotoxins, behavioral toxins, flame retardants, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, toxic solvents, VOCs, or GMOs, according to scientifically authoritative lists from around the world. Ingredients have also been further examined by a chemist using available data and modeling software for bioaccumulation (builds up in the body), persistence (builds up in the environment), and general and aquatic toxicity.

“We’re proud to work with Oilogic to give parents a way to instantly recognize products Made entirely from safe ingredients that won’t harm their families,” said Amy Ziff, founder and executive director of the MADE SAFE certification. “MADE SAFE is the future of safe product formulation. As a parent myself, it’s the seal I want for the products I use with my own family,” says Ziff.

Created in January 2016 by two moms, Oilogic addresses common kid troubles naturally. Oilogic has certified its Essential Oil Roll-Ons, including Slumber & Sleep, Ouchies & Boo Boos, Itchy Eyes & Sneezes, Big Bites & Itches, Relax & Calm, and Stuffy Nose & Cough. Oilogic dilutes 100% pure essential oils with natural carrier oils to work safely for children. The brand takes the guesswork out for parents who want the benefits of essential oils for their children but may be intimidated by the blending and dilution process. Using pre-tested blends ensures safety and convenience for busy Moms who are always on the go.

Babies and children are especially vulnerable to toxic chemical exposure. Their immune and organ systems are still developing, and some chemicals may interfere with those processes; they breathe more often and more deeply and consume more pound per pound than adults, increasing their exposure to toxics in their environments; and children have faster metabolisms, which speeds up their rate of absorption of contaminants.[1]

Studies show that early exposures to toxic chemicals for children 0-6 can result in long term health problems like infertilty, cancer, ADD, autism, obesity, and more.[2] Conversely, studies show that actively avoiding toxic chemicals actually lowers levels of them in the body.[3]

The MADE SAFE seal aims to solve the chemical conundrum for parents looking to protect their children from toxics in their everyday items. With scant legislation, little to no regulation around chemicals in commerce, and undisclosed ingredients, it’s nearly impossible for parents to ascertain whether or not a product may cause harm to their families.  Until the MADE SAFE seal, no single trusted symbol has existed to signal parents that products aren’t made with chemicals that can harm their families’ health.
