Why does cupid get all the attention on Valentine’s Day? There’s more to love than just loving another. We’re talking about self-love.
With all this love talk, we think it’s the perfect time to take a look inward and do an inventory. In what ways are you showing yourself some love? What areas could use a little boost?
Made With Safe Ingredients
What Is It?
Toluene is a petrochemical or lab-produced solvent used in air fresheners, sex toys, and in personal care products like nail polish, nail treatments, and hair dyes. Toluene is also found in ambient air in salons from the use of hair and nail treatments, and in homes, workplaces, and cars as a result of air freshener use. Toluene is also an environmental pollutant.
As we look forward to the year ahead here at MADE SAFE, we’re going beyond resolutions by kicking off a year-long revolt against the toxic consumer products that are in our homes.
We’re calling it a New Year’s Revolution.
We are bombarded by air fresheners seemingly every day – in the workplace, businesses, public restrooms, schools, homes of friends and family, and even taxis and car services. On store shelves you’ll find them in numerous forms: electric, automatic misting sprays, gels, beads, plug-ins, heated oils, sprays and more.
A Guide to Safer Candles & Scents
As the cold of winter slowly creeps into the air, we find joy in the search for ways to add warmth to shorter days. Warmth in family and friends joining our homes, and warmth in seasonal products which heighten our senses.
It’s that time of year again! The holidays mean the joy, togetherness, food, and traditions that we look forward to each winter with friends and family.
The holidays also often mean travel. Whether you’re only traveling near or must travel far, it’s likely you’ll need to spend some time on the road or in the air to see your loved ones.

Growing up, my mom’s wrapped gifts were essentially works of art. She turned simple paper, typically brown, elevated by a different theme each year into eye candy: artistic and ornate wintertime twigs, holiday plaid, burlap. The designs usually involved handmade bows of different sizes and designs made of various fabrics from velvet to cotton. Even her “bad” wrapping jobs were (and still are) perfect.

At MADE SAFE we think about the ecosystem all-day, every day. In our hazard-based approach, we not only look for ingredients that won’t harm humans, but we screen to ensure that ingredients won’t harm our air, soil, water, aquatic life, or animals.
