All Kate McLeod products are proudly MADE SAFE™. The MADE SAFE™ seal means that a product is literally made with safe ingredients™ not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, or ecosystems. It's the only nontoxic certification to apply to products we use every day.
Every MADE SAFE certified product is thoroughly screened and 100% of registered ingredients are vetted by scientists and/or researchers to ensure they’re made without known behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, synthetic flame retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs. MADE SAFE additionally screens ingredients for bioaccumulation, environmental persistence, general ecosystem harm, as well as for toxicity to aquatic and terrestrial life. When there is doubt they exercise the precautionary principle, erring on the side of caution. The MADE SAFE approach flips the current regulatory model of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ on its head. This 360-degree ecosystem assessment makes MADE SAFE the most rigorous standard in existence.
What MADE SAFE™ does is revolutionary. In short, it means that you can finally trust that products are made without toxic chemicals known to harm our health. As makers (and of course, as consumers) of skincare products with higher standards, we're grateful for the level of confidence MADE SAFE™ gives us all. Their work creates a definitive line in the sand. From now on, either a product is or is not MADE SAFE™.
