EPA SAFER CHOICE
What is special about the Safer Choice label?
Safer Choice is EPA’s label for safer chemical-based products. Every chemical, regardless of percentage, in a Safer Choice-certified product is evaluated through EPA’s rigorous scientific process and only the safest ingredients are allowed. For over 15 years, the program has certified products that are safer for families, pets, workplaces, neighborhoods, and the environment. The label represents leadership in safer product formulation. Here are some of the reasons why:
Why does EPA certify products?
EPA's mission is to protect the health of people and the environment. To further that mission, EPA certifies products so that consumers can easily choose ones that are safer for people and the environment. The program empowers consumers to protect their health and minimize impact on the environment through everyday purchasing decisions. Using EPA’s chemical and toxicological expertise, the Safer Choice program applies stringent criteria for health and environmental safety in labeling products with the safest possible chemical ingredients.
What does the Safer Choice label mean?
When consumers see the Safer Choice label on a product, they can be confident that the ingredients have been through a rigorous EPA review. The label means that EPA scientists have evaluated every ingredient in the product to ensure it meets Safer Choice's stringent criteria. When people use Safer Choice-certified products, they are protecting their families and the environment by making safer chemical choices.
