Since we started Caboo Products, our mission has been to create safe, sustainable tree-free household products accessible to everyone from babies to grownups. So when we connected and learned about the organization Made Safe, we knew we wanted to work with them.
Made Safe® is a non-profit organization working to get unsafe ingredients out of baby care, personal care, household products and beyond. We believe the Made Safe mission and certification further exemplifies our core values. What’s safe for the earth must also be safe for our bodies.
Last year, we began the certification process. We are excited to announce that Caboo Bamboo Baby Wipes are nowMade Safe® certified. Caboo Bamboo Wipes are the first Made Safe® certified baby wipes available in the United States and Canada! The MADE SAFE (Made With Safe Ingredients™) seal literally means that a product is made with safe ingredients, without toxic chemicals known to harm our health. We are excited to partner with such a great organization doing good work.
What does Made Safe™ certified mean?
MADE SAFE™ literally means a product has been made with ingredients not known to cause human health or ecosystem harm. As the first human health certification to cross consumer product categories, the MADE SAFE™ seal empowers shoppers to find and purchase items that have been screened for known toxic chemicals. That way shoppers know at the point of purchase if a product is made with safe ingredients for use on their bodies, for their babies, and in their homes.
There is a problem in the industry and that is the lack of transparency of ingredients in the products we use daily on ourselves, our children and in our households in general. Stated on Made Safe’s website; ‘With over 85,000 chemicals registered to the EPA that are potentially available for use today, and hundreds of new ones created annually, it’s not enough to prohibit chemicals on so-called “red lists.” That’s why in addition to the Ingredient Database, our chemist screens ingredients to determine if they bioaccumulate or persist in the environment as well as if they display general and/or aquatic toxicity, using predictive modeling software. If the safety of a given ingredient is unknown, we will defer to the Precautionary Principle and the ingredient will not be allowed. The current U.S. model for industrial chemicals allows them to be used until or unless they are proven harmful; we flip that model on its head and use available science for all of our determinations. ‘We are investing in future generations by building a healthier future through MADE SAFE products and ingredients.‘
With the MADE SAFE™ certification, you can buy with peace of mind, knowing that products are safe for you and your family.
