The Clean Label Project™ Certification Program provides consumers assurance of ingredient purity. 

At Clean Label Project, we believe that sometimes what’s NOT on a label is what’s most important. That’s why we created the Clean Label Project Certification Program- to provide high performing brands an opportunity to communicate their commitment to ingredient quality AND to provide consumers assurance that the product has been independently tested and certified to be low in industrial and environmental contaminants.

How it Works

Most certification programs rely on announced onsite audits to view manufacturing processes, sufficient document control, and quality assurance processes. Consumers want assurance that the FINAL product that they feed their families or use in their homes meet their safety standards. That’s why Clean Label Project prides itself on simulating the consumer shopping experience and being the ONLY third-party standard that requires unannounced sampling and testing at retail- testing the EXACT same products that consumers have in their pantries and refrigerators.

Contaminants Evaluated

Toxic Metals (Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead, Mercury and Nickel)


60+ pesticide residues





Traditional certification is process based with on-site auditing and significant documentation trails. With the Clean Label Project Code of Practice Certification, we simulate the true consumer experience through real-world unannounced retail sampling and analytical chemistry testing on the finish product.
