EPA offers the Safer Choice label to company partners who design or reformulate high-performance products using the safest chemical ingredients. When consumers see this label, they can be confident that each ingredient has been screened for potential adverse human or environmental health effects and that the product contains ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class. Certified products must meet the Safer Choice Standard and Criteria for Safer Chemical Ingredientswhich define safer chemical alternatives transparently based on an array of health and environmental endpoints and incorporate the technical tools of EPA’s New Chemicals Program and the U.N.’s Globally Harmonized System criteria. To date, Safer Choice has certified more than 2,000 products for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications.
