Safer Products

We are working toward Safer California households, workplaces and products

The Safer Consumer Products (SCP) program is using a four-step process to reduce toxic chemicals in the products that consumers buy and use. It identifies specific products that contain potentially harmful chemicals and asks manufacturers to answer two questions: 1) Is this chemical necessary? 2) Is there a safer alternative?
