The Importance of the Safer Choice Label

What’s Inside Does Matter

Product labeling can be technical and difficult to understand. This is true for ice cream, frozen meals, shampoo, home cleaning products, and cleaners used in the Sterile Processing Department. You shouldn’t need a degree in chemistry to understand whether the products you use at home or in your work environment is safe and effective. Choosing the safest products is easier when you look for the Safer Choice label.

When you see the Safer Choice label on a product, it represents the entire Safer Choice Standard—a set of commitments regarding the safest product ingredients, product performance, pH standards, sustainable packaging and more to ensure that products with the label are safer options for human and environmental health.

The Case Medical Commitment

Sustainability is not simply a good habit, it is the right thing to do for people and for the environment. That’s why Case Medical is a participant in the US EPA Safer Choice program and has been named Safer Choice Partner of the Year for three consecutive years.

Case Solutions® and SuperNova® cleaners and lubricant all display the Safer Choice label and are composed of only the safest ingredients in their class. They are validated for effectiveness and meet all US EPA requirements for safety and environmental preference, including to be biodegradable and free of toxic and hazardous chemicals.
