About The Safer Choice Program

The U.S. EPA's Safer Choice Program helps consumers, businesses, and institutional buyers identify cleaning and other products that perform well and are safer for people and the environment. Products with the Safer Choice label help consumers and commercial buyers identify and select products with safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing quality or performance.

When you see the Safer Choice label on a product, it means that EPA's scientific review team evaluated every ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects. Safer Choice products do not contain known chemicals of potential concern, like carcinogens, reproductive or developmental toxicants - and even minor product components, like dyes and fragrances, are screened for safety.

However, the Safer Choice program reviews more than just product ingredients. They also look at product performance, pH, packaging and more to ensure that products with the label are safer for you, your business, your family and your pets. Once a product meets the Safer Choice Standard, the EPA conducts annual audits to ensure their standards continue to be met.

They consider these companies leaders in safer product development and sustainability and we're proud to be one of them.
