How it Works
Safer Choice Approved Ingredients
Suppliers select a reviewer for ingredient assessment. The ingredient is reviewed to verify it meets EPA’s Safer Choice standards. Suppliers list their ingredients in CleanGredients, giving more visibility to their products.
Get Products to Market Faster
Formulators have access to a list of pre-approved Safer Choice ingredients. This streamlines the approval process for EPA’s Safer Choice program, getting your Safer Choice-labeled product to market faster.
Increased Consumer Options
A product bearing the Safer Choice label guarantees that every chemical has been reviewed and verified by third party experts.
Benefits for Formulators
Ingredients listed in CleanGredients have been reviewed by third party profilers and EPA’s Safer Choice program, so they can be used in Safer Choice products. Eliminate the guesswork, reduce review costs, and reduce the risk of failed review by using CleanGredients to source ingredients. A CleanGredients subscription pays for itself when formulating Safer Choice products!
Ingredients for Multiple Functions.
CleanGredients has safer options in multiple functional classes of chemicals, including chelating agents, colorants, defoamers, emollients, enzymes and enzyme stabilizers, fragrances, odor eliminators, optical brighteners, oxidants and oxidant stabilizers, plasticizers, polymers, preservatives and antioxidants, processing aids and additives, solvents, specialized industrial chemicals, starter formulations, surfactants, and water soluble films.
The ingredients listed in CleanGredients are market-ready. Ingredient profiles include contact information for suppliers, so you can easily source safer options to use in your products. All components of the ingredients have been screened against the Safer Choice criteria, not just the active ingredients, so you won’t be caught off-guard by a hazardous residual, contaminant, or secondary ingredient.
