This product is a certified green cleaner.

Design for the Environment

Safer Choice, formerly known as Design for the Environment, is a voluntary program overseen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The agency certifies products, including household cleaners, that meet their criteria for human and environmental safety. Companies may carry the Safer Choice Seal if they formulate products with ingredients that meet standards developed through the program. Acceptable ingredients receive a green circle (low concern based on experimental and modeled data), a green half-circle (low concern based on experimental and modeled data, but with some data gaps), or a yellow triangle (some hazard concern).

Unknown:

Leading international certifiers PETA and Leaping Bunny have no information concerning this company’s use of animal testing.



Understanding scores

EWG provides information on cleaning product ingredients from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings indicate the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other product formulations. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Healthy Cleaning ingredient hazard score, from A to F, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED® mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.
