at method, we think cleaning should be fun, not boring. we love colors, so we use dyes that are safe and environmentally friendly. we use FD&C and D&C approved dyes, comprised of both natural and synthetic components, which have been proven to be safe and effective.
we have chosen to use these particular dyes because they have been certified as non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and safe on surfaces. in products for use on surfaces other than skin, we use polymeric dyes, which produce the vivid colors found in method products. these dyes also reduce the potential for staining and/or discoloration of sensitive surfaces by encapsulating the colors (chromaphores) in a matrix, making them non-particulate.
to certify environmental and human safety, method uses an independent, third party testing partner, the EPEA (www.epea.com &www.braungart.com). testing includes factors such as biodegradability and non-toxicity.
