I salute Amy Ziff and MADE SAFE on their heroic work to educate America’s parents about toxic chemicals in everyday products. This work is vital to protect America’s children. We all need to support it.

MADE SAFE solves the problem of chemical confusion and makes it easy to find safe products.
— DR. MARK HYMAN, MD AND BESTSELLING AUTHOR
As makers (and of course consumers) of skin care products with higher standards, we’re grateful for the level of confidence MADE SAFE Certified now gives us all. Their work creates a definitive line in the sand for our claim-loving industry. From now on, either a product is or is not MADE SAFE.
— TRUE BOTANICALS
Lab testing a product to examine how ingredients interact in mixture is revolutionary. In terms of green chemistry, which aims to reduce or eliminate hazardous substances in the formulation phase, it’s the end goal to find that the formulation in its totality doesn’t cause harm to human health. What Made Safe is doing with its seal is facilitating the future of sustainable product formulation in this country.

Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics support Made Safe’s mission. We have always maintained that we all have the right to know what is in our products and applaud Made Safe’s work to give consumers the information they need to choose safer products.
I am very excited to watch the creation of Nontoxic Certified by Amy Ziff and team. This project fills a major gap in ensuring that everyday consumer products are free of key toxic ingredients and contaminants. Other efforts to rate products have been contingent on the disclosure of ingredients by manufacturers, which has limited protected value for consumers. Amy’s creation of a third-party certification with verification through actual testing is a critical step forward for consumer protection in an ineffective regulatory environment. I am very happy to be involved as one of many advisors to this project.

Wellness Warrior salutes programs such as MADE SAFE as vital new ways to identify products that don’t contain hidden hazards. Deborah Szekely, a 94-year-old veteran of the health and wellness world founded our organization on these words: “Today, I feel that taking care of only one’s personal health is not enough. We must all have access to health knowledge and issues so we can make informed choices.” Efforts to disseminate information to consumers that will protect our health and wellness are an important part of healing ourselves and our planet. In short, in order to prevent illness, injury and destruction one needs to know if a product was ‘made safe’!

— BRENDA HYRE, PRESIDENT, REJUVA MINERALS INC.
As a healthcare practitioner, part of the protocol I recommend to my clients is to remove all toxic substances from their life. We don’t even realize how many chemicals we put on and in our bodies. Whatever is placed on the skin is absorbed into the skin, whether it is cosmetics, body products, toothpaste, mouthwash or Physician prescribed pharmaceuticals. In addition we are bombarded by pollutants in the air, chemicals on our lawns or toxic substances used to make our furniture and bedding nonflammable. The good news is that with great resources like Made Safe we can lessen our exposure and clean up toxins to keep our families safe and healthy. We need accurate information and it’s very comforting to know there is a trusted resource.

So many people are sick and need our help. Cleaning up my lifestyle and my environment is what helped me heal from a decade of chronic illness.

Right now most people are unaware of the hazardous chemicals in many products. Manufacturers’ labels can be confusing and incomplete. The certification makes it easy for people to keep themselves and their families safe.
