MADE SAFE Nontoxic Certified™ means that a product has passed MADE SAFE certification and gone on to be lab-tested to ensure that the accessible or used parts of an item or product have been tested and found it is not toxic. It’s about starting with a base of safe ingredients, yet going over and above through actual lab testing of ingredients to ensure that ingredient mixtures won’t cause harm. This is not the standard way of doing business today – however, it’s the best way to ensure that an item, in totality, as it is sold, is nontoxic. We believe Nontoxic Certification is the Gold Standard of product testing and the future of product formulation.
MADE SAFE Nontoxic Certified lab-tests products to ensure that no new toxins are formed in mixture, there’s no supply chain contamination, and to validate the screening in a lab environment. (NOTE: The type of product, what is accessible, the ultimate use as well as manufacturing determine what lab tests need to be performed.)
We recognize that this approach is novel. Most products aren’t manufactured with human health implications in mind. We are pioneers in an emerging field, and there is still much to be learned. We won’t always be perfect. But we have built programs that allow products to be vetted against some of the best information available today. We update our processes regularly. And the bottom line is that we prioritize people with every one of our decisions. We always come back to our core belief that the products we use on our bodies, for our children, in our homes and in our communities should be safe. Without external regulation of the thousands of chemicals in commerce today, the Made Safe programs provide a logical path toward a healthy product marketplace.
