Girl cleaningThere are tens of thousands of chemicals in use in products we use everyday. Sometimes it seems like you have to have a chemistry degree to figure out which ones are safe and which ones might lead to serious health problems like cancer, infertility, learning disabilities, hormone problems, and more.

That’s where we come in. In addition to certifying products are made with safe ingredients not known to harm human health or the environment, we believe in educating people on easy ways to avoid toxic chemicals in the first place. Because studies show that even small steps, like switching cosmetics or eating less plastic-packaged food, can significantly lower levels of toxic chemicals in your body.
