When you see a product with the Safer Choice label, it means that every ingredient in the product has been reviewed by EPA scientists. Only products that meet the Safer Choice Standard, which includes stringent human health and environmental criteria, are allowed to carry the label.
Meeting the Safer Choice Standard is voluntary. Companies who manufacture Safer Choice products have invested heavily in research and reformulation to ensure that their ingredients and finished product line up on the green end of the health and environmental spectrum. These companies are leaders in safer products and sustainability.
Safer Choice products work well and are less toxic. They are safer for: You, your family, and pets; Workers' health; and Fish and the environment.
In addition to safer ingredients, EPA's Safer Choice Standard also includes requirements for: performance, packaging, pH, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Situated in the U.S. EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT), the Safer Choice Program (formerly the EPA DfE Program) is a product formulator's gateway to OPPT's unique chemical expertise, information resources, and guidance on greener chemistry. The program gathers hazard information on chemical ingredients and works with OPPT's science experts to assess this information and compare the relative safety of chemicals.
Since 1997, the EPA Safer Choice Program has offered recognition to those companies who design for the environment and human health by only using safer chemicals. Momar is proud to be a partner with the EPA in this program.
