The Association

safelife is a non-profit Association ruled by the French Law (1901).

The Association is engaged in the promotion of safer daily goods for health and environment.

Founded in 2008, the Association facilitates discussions among economic actors, civil society’s representatives and experts to better take into account health issues in society and sectors.

The safelife association promotes an application of the prevention principle on substances used in daily goods

MISSIONS

 

The safelife Association has three main missions :

 

1. To impulse change within industries...

… by supporting stakeholders to switch their production to safer products for health and ecosystems. The safelife® standards offer formulation guides that guaranteed the consumer’s safety need. These standards are based on the prevention principle and evolve over time according the state-of-the-art scientific evidences. The safelife Association also pays a specific attention to the development of alternative solutions to existing ingredients or materials which may be safer and as performant.

          

2. To uphold citizen-consumers' interest

Thanks to the safelife® label, citizen-consumers can identify products or services that are safe for their health and the environment.

The safelife association upholds industries’ common positions on daily goods’ challenges regarding safety and essential public responsibility toward institutional interlocutors: research, technical institutes, public agencies, ministries, etc.

3. To raise awareness on health hazards

The last mission of the safelife Association consists of informing daily products’ stakeholders (consumers, distributors, processors and producers) about risks identified by renowned scientific actors (doctors, biologists, toxicologists, epidemiologists, etc.).

The Scientific Committee of the Association is led by the experts of the Réseau Environnement Santé whose vocation is to raise citizens ‘awareness about risks related to endocrine disruptors.

Its mission is limited to stimulate the sense of responsibility of producers to make safer goods.

By offering manufacturers to comply with the standards that it initiates and develops with them, it does not incur liability and does not guarantee performance.
