Why Safer Choice Matters
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safer Choice Standard recognizes high-quality and sustainable detergents and cleaners. At Charlie’s Soap, we pride ourselves on achieving that recognition. But what does that mean for us, and — more importantly — you?
In simplest terms, being Safer Choice Certified means the EPA recognizes our dedication to the health and safety of the environment and our customers. To achieve this standard, products have to meet the following EPA criteria:
- Safe ingredients
- Product performance
- pH levels
- Worker safety
- Resource conservation
- …and much more!
Having the Safer Choice seal of approval reinforces our dedication to live green and deep clean. And for that, we couldn’t be more proud.

Four of Charlie’s Soap products are Safer Choice Certified, including:
- Laundry Liquid

- Laundry Powder

These four products contain no inorganic phosphates, hazardous solvents, or environmentally harmful surfactants. While the Safer Choice Standard applies to only the products listed above, all of Charlie’s Soap products are biodegradable, dye-free, hypoallergenic, and perfume-free.
Disclaimer: EPA/Safer Choice recognition does not constitute an endorsement of this product. The Safer Choice label signifies that the product’s formula, as Sutherland has represented it to the EPA, contains ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. EPA/Safer Choice relies solely on Sutherland, its integrity and good faith, for information on the product’s composition, ingredients and attributes. The EPA has not independently identified, that is, via chemical analysis, the ingredients in the product formula, or evaluated any of Sutherland’s non-ingredient claims. EPA provides its evaluation only as to the product’s human health and environmental characteristics, as specified in the Safer Choice Standard and based on currently available information and scientific understanding.http://www.epa.gov/saferchoice
