Toxicology Specialist 

Scivera is fundamentally changing the way consumer product brands and suppliers worldwide select chemicals for their products.  Scivera collaborates with many of the world’s most recognizable brands and their global supplier networks to select safer chemicals for products and processes.

Comprehensive chemical hazard assessments provide scientific insight into the underlying human and environmental health characteristics of chemicals.  The information is vital to formulate better, safer, and more sustainable products.   Until now, hazard assessments have been cost- and time-prohibitive for brands to proactively move beyond basic regulatory compliance and seek safer chemicals. Scivera’s paradigm-changing approach makes this vital knowledge accessible throughout the supply chain revolutionizing product formulation techniques and product quality.
