Safer Choice Meaning

The EPA allows products recognized to have met the stringent qualifying criteria of the “Safer Choice” program to carry the "Safer Choice" label on their literature and product label. This new distinctive label allows consumers to quickly indentify and choose products determined to help protect our environment and are safer for human health.

When you see the Safer Choice logo on a product it means:

  • The Safer Choice scientific review team has screened each ingredient for potential human health and environmental effects
  • The product contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class based on currently available information, EPA predictive models, and expert judgment.

Product manufacturers who become Safer Choice partners and earn the right to display the Safer Choice logo on recognized products have invested heavily in research, development, and reformulation to ensure that their ingredients and finished product line up on the green end of the health and environmental spectrum, while maintaining or improving product performance.

How does Safer Choice makes sure that products bearing the label are really safer?

If you would like a little more (technical) information, please read on!

Safer Choice is located in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT). OPPT has regulated chemicals for more than 30 years and has unique expertise in understanding the impacts of chemicals on people and the environment.

EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute endorsement of these products. The Safer Choice logo signifies that the products’ formulas, as Custom Compounders has represented it to the EPA, contain ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on Custom Compounders, its integrity and good faith, for information on the products’ composition, ingredients and attributes. EPA/Safer Choice has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the products’ formula, nor evaluated any of Custom Compounders’ non-ingredient claims. EPA/Safer Choice provides its evaluation only as to the products’ human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.
