REJUVA MINERALS PIONEERS NEW SEAL THAT PROTECTS CONSUMERS FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS
MADE SAFE certified products from Rejuva Minerals don’t contain known carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, reproductive toxins, or other chemicals known to harm human health
Orlando, FL –Rejuva Minerals is leading the way in consumer health and safety by pioneering the revolutionary new MADE SAFETM (Made with Safe Ingredients) seal. Products with this emblem are available in stores and on the company’s website starting today. As the first comprehensive human health certification to cross consumer product categories, the MADE SAFET seal empowers shoppers to find and purchase items that have been screened for known toxic chemicals so that they can easily find items that are safe for use on their bodies, with their babies, and in their homes. Rejuva Minerals joins companies from across the personal care, baby, and household product categories to use this groundbreaking seal.
Since 2006, it has been our goal to produce the safest, most effective cosmetics possible to consumers. Our products have always been of highest purity and now we are proud to prove it
MADE SAFE screens products for toxic chemicals that are known to harm human health. Products with this seal do not contain carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, reproductive toxins, neurotoxins, behavioral toxins, flame retardants, heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, toxic solvents, VOCs, or GMOs. Each and every ingredient has been scrutinized by a scientist. The MADE SAFE seal is an independent third-party verification that ends consumer confusion around what to buy.
To start we have certified 24 products that can be found at www.rejuvaminerals.com/madesafe
Our line includes cosmetics, skin care and application tools with an interest in serving the vegan and cruelty free market. Our products are manufactured here in the United States at a current Good Manufacturing Practices facility.
The Made Safe process starts by screening ingredients in products against a comprehensive database of chemicals known to harm human health. The process then goes beyond “red lists” to use the best available data and predictive modeling to screen ingredients for bioaccumulation, persistence, and environmental and aquatic toxicity. With this step, the certification actually aims to close data gaps on chemicals and alter the way products are made in this country.
“We’re proud to partner with REJUVA MINERALS to give consumers a guiding light in the darkness around product safety,” said Amy Ziff, founder and executive director of the MADE SAFE certification. “MADE SAFE means that every ingredient in the product has been scrutinized to ensure that it won’t cause harm; this is the future of safe product formulation.”
The MADE SAFE seal solves the chemical conundrum that has vexed consumers for decades. Over 80,000 chemicals are currently in use in the US, and the majority are untested. Increasing studies are linking chemicals in everyday products to a wide range of serious health problems, from cancer, reproductive harm, and endocrine disruption, to learning disabilities, developmental problems, and infertility.
But with scant legislation, little to no regulation around chemicals in commerce, and undisclosed ingredients, it’s nearly impossible for consumers to ascertain whether or not a product may cause harm to their families. What’s worse, consumers are forced to navigate a sea of greenwashing with meaningless claims like “green” or “eco”. While they can turn to single-chemical claims like “BPA-Free” or “paraben-free,” no single trusted symbol has existed to signal consumers that products are truly free from chemicals that can harm their health.
“As a parent, this is the seal I want for the products I use on my own body, for my children and in my home,” says Ziff.
“I came to the realization that the unhealthy, toxic makeup that I was using was compromising my sensitive skin. Together with my husband and partner Troy, we set out on a mission to formulate products that would be clean and safe. The Made Safe seal is the evidence of our success,” says Brenda Hyre.
MADE SAFE™, America’s first comprehensive human health certification to cross consumer product categories, is a nonprofit with the goal of making it possible for consumers to easily find safe products while also offering Rejuva Minerals and retailers a road map to making and selling products that are made with safe ingredients. Founded by Amy Ziff with a mission to change the way products are made in America and around the world, the certification scrutinizes ingredients to avoid using materials linked to known human health harm. It is imperative that consumers always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for use when using certified products. For more information, visit www.madesafe.org.
