About AAFA

asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program

Many products promise to help control allergens. But some products make false or exaggerated claims. This makes it hard for consumers to know the best products to buy.

AAFA joined with Allergy Standards Limited to create the asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program. This program helps patients to understand product claims and make informed purchases. We test household products against strict standards. If products pass our tests, they earn the asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Mark.  When you see this Mark, you know the product is proven to be better suited for those with asthma and allergies.

Look for this Mark!
