What is the MADE SAFE® Certification?

The MADE SAFE Certification is a comprehensive human health-focused certification for nontoxic products from baby and personal care to household products and more. The overarching goal of the MADE SAFE non-profit organization is to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals in consumer products.

The MADE SAFE (Made With Safe Ingredients) seal on a product means that product’s ingredients have been screened against their Ingredient Database and found to be free of chemicals known to be harmful to human health (they also check for fragrances and potentially allergenic ingredients.) The Database includes thousands of chemicals listed by scientifically authoritative organizations and agencies around the world. MADE SAFE® certified products have been screened (as shown on the Seal) for known:

  • Behavioral toxins
  • Carcinogens
  • Developmental toxins
  • Endocrine disruptors
  • Fire retardants
  • Heavy metals
  • Neurotoxins
  • High-risk pesticides
  • Reproductive toxins
  • Toxic solvents
  • Harmful VOCs

In addition to the Ingredient Screening, products are examined for bioaccumulation (build in our bodies), persistence (stays in the environment), and aquatic toxicity.
