MADE SAFE Gift Guide

 

Recommendations from Founder Amy Ziff

Gift Guide

This holiday season, I’m thrilled to give you this guide of healthier options to make your shopping easier. No one wants to accidentally give a toxic gift, but it can be confusing to figure out what’s safe and what’s not.

I developed the MADE SAFE™ seal because I believe it shouldn’t be so hard to find things that are made with safe ingredients. While only the gift recommendations in bold are MADE SAFE certified, I generally like the direction all of these companies are taking and trust that they are making better products than many on the market.

Ten Simple Ways to Detox Your Home

 
Ten Simple Ways to Detox Your HomeYou’ve seen the headlines: fire retardants in crib mattresses, endocrine disruptors in baby bottles, carcinogens in cosmetics, secret toxic fragrance chemicals. You think, “Well, of course I want to avoid these and find the healthy options.” You start out with the best of intentions, and then you discover it’s harder than you thought to figure out what’s actually safe and what’s not.

Introducing the World’s First MADE SAFE Brand

 
True Botanicals social postTrue Botanicals has just become the first MADE SAFE™ Brand in the world. This means that not only they certify every single product in their current line, they also committed formulating every single future product in accordance with the stringent MADE SAFE standard.

Why is this a big (huge!) deal? Here’s why: there are approximately 85,000 chemicals in use today on the marketplace and hundreds of new ones are created annually–but very few of them have been tested for their long-term impacts on our health. (more…)

New Seal Helps Consumers Identify Products Made Without Known Toxic Chemicals

Certification ensures that items across consumer product categories are made without known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, or other chemicals found to harm human health

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 8, 2016
CONTACT: Cassidy Randall, cassidy@madesafe.org, (406) 529-1593

Family using safe productsNEW YORK – Products carrying a revolutionary new certification that helps protect consumer health are hitting shelves today. The MADE SAFE™ (Made With Safe Ingredients™) seal empowers shoppers to find and purchase items that have been screened for known toxic chemicals, so that for the first time, consumers know at the point of purchase which products are made without known harmful chemicals for use on their bodies, for their babies, and in their homes.

Testimonials

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.
— PHILIP LANDRIGAN, MD, PEDIATRICIAN AND AUTHOR WITH MARY LANDRIGAN OF CHILDREN AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS: WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW

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.
— JOHN WARNER, PRESIDENT & CTO, WARNER BABCOCK INSTITUTE FOR GREEN CHEMISTRY, LLC

We owe it to our kids and grandkids to give them a healthy environment and lifestyle. The MADE SAFE program is an excellent step forward.
— BARRY A CIK, FOUNDER, NATUREPEDIC

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.
LAUREL STANDLEY, PHD

I’m proud to be a MADE SAFE supporter, and look forward to sharing the progress we make together to change how skincare and personal care products are made, while at the same time educating on the importance of ingredient safety.
— RACHAEL PONTILLO, HOLISTICALLY HAUTE, LLC

Made Safe is doing what the FDA should be doing.
— JON J. WHELAN, FILM DIRECTOR, STINK!

As the owner and operator of Just So Natural Products I am thrilled to join with MADE SAFE! Together we hope to take the mystery out of label reading and offer consumers peace of mind when it comes to safe cleaning and personal care products. I love the accountability as a business owner and applaud MADE SAFE for blazing this trail!
— ANDREA FABRY, OWNER JUST SO and IT TAKES TIME

Validation is important in order to arrive at removing confusion and doubt over what constitutes a safe product for animals and planet.
— SUSIE HEWSON, FOUNDER, NATRACARE

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’!
— DAMON CORY-WATSON, DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT, WELLNESS WARRIOR

For 10 years, Rejuva Minerals has hand-selected only the safest ingredients to produce our beautifully pigmented, naturally derived and organic cosmetics. And now, we have taken additional steps to substantiate the safety of our products. We are proud to say that we have met the strict set of standards associated with the revolutionary new third-party certification program called MADE SAFE. MADE SAFE scrutinizes each and every ingredient, even checking the supply chain to rule out potential contaminants. We are excited to start offering MADE SAFE certified products and spreading the word about this new third party certification program.
— 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.
— MARIA TABONE, THE HOLISTIC ROOT

It takes all of us to sustain a healthy future, inside and out.
— SUSAN INGLIS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, SUSTAINABLE FURNISHINGS COUNCIL

We hand craft organic skin care that guarantees beautiful, glowing skin, and that’s why it makes sense for us to pioneer this seal to protect people from toxic chemicals in products they use on their bodies.
— ANNMARIE GIANNI SKINCARE

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. I had no idea what toxins were lurking in my home before I started to detox everything and my body started to heal because I was removing the toxic burden on my body on a daily basis!
— AMIE VALPONE, CELEBRITY CHEF AND WRITER, THE HEALTHY APPLE

We’re excited to see the MADE SAFE certification process come to life, because it serves as another layer in ingredient transparency, empowering consumers to make informed decisions about what they put in and on their bodies.
— MEIKA HOLLENDER, CO-FOUNDER, SUSTAIN NATURALS

Finding truly nontoxic products is incredibly hard! I’m sick of the greenwashing and I want honest, real choices. I fully support and want safe, nontoxic products, like so many others.
— JESSICA HEALY, SCRATCH MOMMY LLC

Good Clean Love was founded on the premise that sexual health products can be as good for your body as they feel good during the experience. This is why we’re so proud to carry the MADE SAFE seal to align certification with our overall product philosophy.
— WENDY STRGAR, FOUNDER & CEO, GOOD CLEAN LOVE

Our children deserve safe products that support their healthy futures.
— ANNE BROCK, FLOUR SACK MAMA

We have long believed that plastics have no place in juvenile feeding and adult hydration bottles and have worked tirelessly to create products that have no plastic content. As the only 100% plastic-free bottle line in the world, Pura is excited to see an independent body focused on the highest standards in human health and environmental safety. The seal will aid consumers around the world in their quest for products devoid of toxic chemicals. We are proud to be the first bottle to achieve this status.
— ROGER MOORE, CEO, PURA STAINLESS

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.
— MONICA UNSELD, PHD
