Safer alternatives and Evaluated safer alternatives

There are two kinds of alternatives advertised on Marketplace: “Evaluated Alternative” and “Alternative”. What’s the difference?

For all the ads called “Evaluated Alternative” , us at ChemSec – the organization behind Marketplace – are in contact with the producers and we have taken a close look at their alternatives before they published their ads on Marketplace.

All the ads simply labelled “Alternative” are solutions that ChemSec has come across doing research. Our experience tells us that these solutions are most likely safer, but we lack contact details and in-depth knowledge about the products. An “Alternative” can easily be upgraded to an “Evaluated Alternative” if the producer provides additional information.
