EPA Safer Choice
The Safer Choice label helps consumers and commercial purchasers find products that contain safer chemical ingredients, without sacrificing performance.
NSF is the largest third-party Safer Choice product reviewer. We perform ingredient-by-ingredient reviews of product formulations to screen for chemicals that may present serious health or environmental effects and recommend safer substitutes for chemicals of concern.
Safer Choice products do not contain known carcinogens or reproductive or developmental toxicants. Even minor product components, like dyes and fragrances, are screened for safety. Eligible products include all-purpose cleaners, window cleaners, tub/tile cleaners, laundry detergents, floor care products, pet care products and car care products.
