MADE SAFE®, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides America’s first comprehensive human health-focused certification for nontoxic products across store aisles, from baby to personal care to household and beyond. The MADE SAFE® (Made With Safe Ingredients™) seal literally means that a product is made with safe ingredients, without toxic chemicals known to harm our health.
MADE SAFE® screens ingredients against their Ingredient Database of known harmful chemicals, which is made up of thousands of chemicals found on scientifically authoritative lists from organizations and agencies around the world.
They then go above and beyond to examine ingredients for bioaccumulation, persistence, and general and aquatic toxicity.
In order to do this, their scientists and/or advisors analyze the materials, ingredients and chemical components of a product (as obtained through required paper screening) to ensure it does not contain known harmful ingredients or release vapors, gases, or by-products that could impact human health.
They scrutinize the molecular makeup of a product and their scientists determine whether or not those ingredients and elements are safe for the intended use of the product.
