MADE SAFE® is a program of Nontoxic Certified, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They provide America’s first comprehensive human health and ecosystem-focused certification for nontoxic products across store aisles, from baby to personal care to household and beyond. The MADE SAFE® (Made With Safe Ingredients™) seal means that a product is made with safe ingredients, without toxic chemicals known to harm our health.

It is, by far, the most stringent non-toxic standard.
