Focusing on Product Safety

You trust Go Planet Earth soap making supplies to provide safe products, and we take that responsibility very seriously. That's why we want to give you an update on recent legislation aimed at increasing the safety of children's products.

Among other things, the new legislation strengthens rules for lead content and phthalates (a chemical used in plastic) in children's products, mandates third-party testing and provides more resources for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the federal agency that will implement the new requirements. The vendors and manufacturers that we work with have taken an active role in the legislative process by working with members of Congress and the retail and toy industries, all with the goal of strengthening the safety of children's products in the United States. Since we sell a good number of rubber ducks and other toy embeds for soap making projects, we wanted you to be assured that

  • 100% of our toy products are tested before they ship to us. We do not authorize shipment of products unless they meet federal safety requirements.
  • The toy products we sell are tested by one of the world's largest independent consumer product testing laboratories.

You can be confident that I am focused on the safety of our products and are doing all we can to ensure the safety of children.
