The first step is to determine whether any credible data indicates the ingredient has the potential to cause longer-term health effects. Our data sources include California Proposition 65 and the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer, to name a few.
This step evaluates whether an ingredient may stick around in the environment, build up in living things or is toxic to marine and freshwater life. Our data sources include the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), ECHAs Substances of Very High Concern list and the US Environmental Protection Agencys PBT Profiler, to name a few. Any indication of being a PBT will cause an ingredient to be flagged.
This step looks at the potential for an ingredient to produce short-term human effects like skin irritation, toxicity to aquatic life or the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air. Our data sources include Safety Data Sheets, the US National Institutes of Healths TOXNET and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development guidelines, among many others.
