Get your product independently certified by Allergy Standards (ASL) to provide clarity and confidence for your customers.

We created the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program to scientifically test and identify consumer products that are more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. When consumers see the distinctive mark on a product, they know they are buying an asthma & allergy friendly® product.
