About MADE SAFE® Certification

MADE SAFE certification demonstrates a commitment to safety, as our uniquely rigorous screening process evaluates product inputs to ensure they have not been formulated with known carcinogens; endocrine disruptors such as: reproductive, neurological, behavioral, developmental or teratogenic toxins; synthetic flame retardants; high-risk pesticides; harmful solvents or VOCs.

Additionally, our unique Ecosystem Approach evaluates for bioaccumulation, persistence, and environmental, terrestrial, and aquatic toxicity, making our seal protective of both humans and the environment. MADE SAFE certification makes it easy for consumers to identify products made without chemicals known or suspected to be harmful to humans or the ecosystem.
