AH! YES is Made Safe!
We're thrilled to announce that we've been awarded the MADE SAFE® certification!
Great news! We’ve been awarded the MADE SAFE® certification for AH! YES WB water-based personal lubricant, AH! YES OB plant-oil based personal lubricant, and AH! YES VM vaginal moisturizer. We’ve always been committed to putting our customers’ health and wellbeing first, by making products with certified organic, body-safe ingredients, and so we’re proud to prove it with this certification.
What is the MADE SAFE® certification?
The MADE SAFE seal means that products have been through a rigorous examination process to ensure they’re made without known behavioral toxins, carcinogens, developmental toxins, endocrine disruptors, flame retardants, heavy metals, neurotoxins, high risk pesticides, reproductive toxins, toxic solvents, or harmful VOCs. The ingredients are then further studied by a chemist for bioaccumulation (build-up of chemicals in our bodies), persistence (build-up of chemicals in the environment), general ecosystem harm, as well as for aquatic and animal toxicity.
Products that have earned the MADE SAFE seal have passed this intensive testing procedure and are literally made with safe ingredients™ not known or suspected to harm human health, animals or ecosystems.
Why is the MADE SAFE® seal important?
Surely a company wouldn’t produce a product containing potentially harmful ingredients?
As Sarah and Susi discovered whilst analysing other competitors’ products, this was (and still is) indeed the case. Many intimate care products contain synthetic additives or chemicals including parabens, glycerine and glycols, which can actually cause irritation to the delicate vulval tissues.
This, alongside confusing ‘greenwashing’ claims about how ‘natural’ a product is, has made it harder than ever for consumers to navigate the market and figure out which products are actually body safe and which ones aren’t.
The MADE SAFE seal helps to solve this problem by guaranteeing that certified products are pure and unadulterated, reinforcing our commitment to remain transparent about the ingredients within our products and educating customers on what they’re putting on and in their bodies.
